How to make wedding style bread halwa
To make this bread halwa, firstly, fry cashews in ghee. Melt ghee in a nonstick pan and fry the cashews until golden brown in color. fry it in medium heat. Take out the cashews and keep it aside until use.
Take 4 slices of bread and cut the bread to 4 pieces each. In the same pan with the leftover ghee, toast the bread pieces. You can also deep fry in oil or shallow fry in ghee. toast until golden on both sides. Take care not to brown the bread too much as it will change the color and taste of the halwa.
Boil milk with saffron threads. Let it comes to a boil.
When it comes to a boil, put the flame low and immediately add khoya/mawa and mix it well to dissolve it completely without any lumps. When the khoya is dissolved completely, put off the stove and add the fried bread pieces into it and let it soak until needed.
In another pan, melt sugar with water and let it boil and start to reduce.
To this sugar syrup, add the soaked bread pieces with milk and mix well. add mixed seeds (melon/cucumber seeds). Let it boil and reduce.
When the halwa starts to thicken, add ghee and stir to avoid sticking to the bottom and sides.
Stir until the water is completely gone and it combines together. At this stage, add roasted cashews.
Mix well and cook to form a single combined halwa consistency. If you find it sticky, add more ghee if needed. Since am using a nonstick pan, less ghee was sufficient.
serve it topped with seeds. serve warm or chilled.
