My Notes:

  • Roast the bread pieces till golden brown.
  • Don't compromise on ghee, then you will not the desired halwa texture and consistency.
  • When it turns into a mass, ghee will start to ooze out at the sides thats the correct stage to switch off.
  • The final consistency should be goey not thick.
  • Keeps well for 2 days if refrigerated.While serving just heat it and serve.
  • I used milk bread, you can use normal bread too but make sure you increase sugar.

  2. Dear Sharmi,

    This Halwa looks super delicious!
    A small note looks like the pan u r using here is a non stick one, if so please don't use a ever silver spoon on a non stick tawa, that is not good for health. If that is not a non stick tawa please ignore this comment. I have sent u a mail on which utensils to be used to cooking and how to use them, that was published in vikatan. Happy and safe Diwali. Appreciate ur work!
