Bread Halwa is a such a simple sweet to make for sudden cravings or surprise guests. I had a few bread slices that was about to get stale. So made this quick halwa and it tasted just yumm! Nobody at home was able to find out that this was made out of bread. The best part is that all the ingredients needed for this halwa will usually be able in your pantry. No fancy ingredients needed. My favourite halwa is Potato Halwa. But unlike that halwa this can be made in just 20 mins. Recipe with video… 🙂

Here is the video..


Now to the recipe..

  • Chop the bread slices roughly. Heat a pan with 2 tsps of ghee. Fry the sliced almonds until golden brown. Keep it aside. To the same ghee add the bread slices.

  • Roast the bread slices until golden brown. To this add milk. Soak and cook the bread slices in simmer so that it mashes well.

  • Mash the bread slices completely with the ladle. When all the milk is absorbed add sugar and the remaining ghee. Keep stirring.

  • Keep stirring in low-medium flame until it leaves the sides of the pan and ghee oozes out. This will take about 10 mins. Add cardamom powder and the roasted almonds. Switch off the flame.

  1. Brown or white bread can used to make this halwa.
  2. I have used brown sugar, u can use white sugar too.
  3. Do not be tempted to add more ghee. It will ooze out all the ghee finally.
  4. Cook until the halwa shrinks and ghee oozes out. Thats the perfect stage.
  5. Stays good for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
  6. Shelf life is less as we have added milk.
  7. U can add any nuts of your choice along with raisins.
