ShareThis amazingly delicious sweet is very simple to make. Surely we should have the luxury of indulging ourselves, once in a while, to savor such sinful temptations!! -:)

The halwa can be served either warm or cold. I prefer my halwa to be warm. But the taste is heavenly either way.


  • Unsalted bread-1 loaf
  • Sugar-1cup
  • Condensed milk-1 small tim
  • Red food colour-a pinch
  • Crushed Cardamoms-6
  • Milk-1/2liter
  • Rose water-2tbsp
  • Ghee-2tbsp
  • Chopped cashewnuts,almonds and rasins-1/2cup
  • Oil-for deep frying
Dry the slices of bread in bright sunlight for a day till crisp.This process prevents the bread from absorbing lot of oil when fried.The slices can be cut into two triangles before drying.
Heat oil for deep frying.Add the dried bread pieces and fry them till they turn golden brown.Drain on paper towels.
Prepare sugar syrup by boiling 1cup water with 1cup sugar.Add food colour and crushed elaichi to it and boil for 3mins.
In a heavy bottomed pan,pour in the milk and boil.Simmer flame and layer the fried bread slices over the milk.Now pour the condensed milk,rose water and sugar syrup.
Reserve 1/4th of the sugar syrup.It can be added towards the end if required after checking the sweetness.
Let it simmer for about 15 mins till the bread pieces turn soft and cook in the milk mixture.
Exess milk/water shoul have been absorbed by now.
Heat ghee in a small pan and fry the nuts till golden in colour.
Add the ghee and nuts to the halwa and gently mix.So that you have a soft halwa with crisp bits of fried bread in between.
It tastes good both warm and cold.

    Anju, that sounds seriously divine. Bookmarked it, will surely try it out. Please let me know by email, if there is any other way of drying the bread, like toasting it may be? As I have lot of dirt outside under sun, so will be really skeptical in drying it out.
