Bread Halwa

I have been noticing so many bread halwa posts recently, but never tasted one before. So I was very keen to experiment it. It is very easy with simple ingredients and my daughter loved it.
There are different versions of bread halwa.
·         With khoya (Mawa)
·         With Milk
·         Without milk / khoya only with sugar syrup. Saw this in Indian Kitchen.
·         Deep frying bread in ghee and then making halwa.
My recipe is shallow frying bread in ghee and using milk.
·         Bread – 10 slices
·         Sugar – 1 cup
·         Milk – 500 ml (half litre )
·         Ghee – 6 tbsp
·         Cardamom Powder – ½ tsp
·         Dry fruits and Nuts – 2- 3 tbsp
Cut the bread slices into cubes as below. You need not discard the corners. I used brown bread. You can use any type of bread for this.
Roughly chop the Dry fruits and nuts.
Heat a table spoon of ghee is a Kadai. Fry the dry fruits and nuts. Keep it aside.
Add 2 more table spoons of ghee and fry the bread pieces till its crisp and golden brown.(I dint fry much.. may be i should have waited for the next stage) Don’t burn it too much. There is also a short cut here. Just deep fry the bread pieces in ghee. I cant even imagine that.

Tip: Instead of this step you can toast the bread with ghee in dosa pan. That will save the time.
Add milk and sugar and mix well. With the help of ladle mash the bread pieces well. Add the cardamom powder and 2 tbsp of ghee .
Cook the halwa in low flame for 15 mins with constant stirring. 
Add another tbsp of ghee and fried nuts to it. It gains brown color after a while.
Serve hot.
