Bread Burfi / Bread Halwa

Prep Time:2 mins   Cooking Time:10 mins    Cuisine:Indian

Last week, I had two big loaves of brown bread at home. And I know its going to expire even before anyone of us finishes it.

Generally I make bread crumbs with excess bread that I have, but this time I wanted to make a dessert with the same. Hence, I gave an attempt with the bread crumbs. I followed the same recipe of any other burfi / halwa.

Moreover its extremely easy to make when compared to sooji halwa (wherein you will have to be careful about lumps) . And trust me it turned out super tasty that we finished all the bread burfi / squares within same day. 

This can be in your list of ‘quick make desserts’ because it takes hardly 10 mins to prepare the burfis. So why not give a try then!!

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Bread crumbs – 2 cups
  • Almonds –  10 to 12 
  • Ghee / Butter – (3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon)
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Cardamom / Elaichi – 3

Special Ingredients:

  • Fresh Bread Crumbs

Procedure:

  • Firstly , make the bread slices into small pieces and grind them into small crumbs.
  • Chop the almonds into halves.
  • Put a wide bottom pan on stove top under medium flame.
  • Add a teaspoon of ghee / butter and then add the chopped almonds.
  • When the almonds turn golden brown, remove them and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add all the bread crumbs.

    Fry the crumbs for 2-3 mins until they turn a golden brown.

  • Next add the sugar and mix everything well.
  • The sugar starts melting then keep stirring now and then. 
  • When the sugar is completely melted pour in the milk and cardamom powder / cardamom pods also. 
  • Mix everything carefully. See pics below for reference.
  • You will get a thick consistency after 3-4 mins, then add the ghee/butter.
  • Mix up everything and let it be on flame for more 2-3 mins until it separates from the sides of the pan.
  • At this stage transfer the mix from the pan onto a tray which is brushed with little ghee.
  • Cut into pieces after it sets/dries or just eat it right away by. Done!!

Tips:

  • Prefer for fresh bread rather than hardened bread to make this sweet dish.
  • I used brown bread while you can use white bread / any bread too.
  • You can add any other dry fruits as you wish.
  • Vegans can use coconut milk which suits best for desserts.
  • If you are a vegan you can replace the ghee / butter with coconut cooking oil. 
  • Cut the mix only after its set in the tray for at least 10 to 20 mins.
  • If you do not want to wait just put it in a bowl and eat it away.

Result:

  • It turned out super tasty , soft and chewy.
  • It doesn’t match much in taste with any other burfi / halwa.
  • Look at the pic below ; don’t you feel like grabbing one and have it right away. 🙂
