bread halwa recipe

basically the preparation of bread halwa is similar to the way most halwas are made. the taste of bread halwa is like that of bread pudding. thus it tastes good. making bread halwa is easy but some hand stirring is required.

usually white bread gives the best texture in the halwa (i have used homemade white bread). but even brown bread can be used. you can even use one to two days old bread to make bread halwa. sweet bread or milk bread can also be used to make bread halwa. if using sweet bread, then add very less sugar and as per taste.

i have not added much ghee in the halwa, but yes you can add more ghee if you want. the dry fruits & nuts can also be of your choice. to veganize the recipe, you can use a neutral tasting oil or a vegan butter and almond milk or water.

bread halwa can be served hot or warm or chilled. serve bread halwa as a sweet snack or as a dessert after meals.
