White bread slices - 5 to 6
( do not remove crust chop the bread into small pieces,stale bread also works)
Ghee - 8 tsp
Milk - around 1 &1/2 cups
(pour 1 cup milk little by little and mix,if needed add the remaining 1/2 cup milk as each bread quality is different)
Sugar - 6 tsp add more if needed
Fried Cashew nuts - 10
Fried Raisins - 2 tsp
Melon seeds - 1 tsp
Saffron - a generous pinch
Cardamom crushed -5
Heat 6 tsps of ghee in a pan add the bread cubes and roast till crisp and golden brown on all sides in medium high flame ( this step is very important),do not burn them.Otherwise once milk is poured the bread pieces will get mashed up and become mushy.
Add the sugar and milk cook till bread absorbs the milk.Pour 1 cup milk little by little and mix,if needed add the remaining 1/2 cup milk as each bread quality is different
Add the remaining 2 tsp ghee, fried nuts,cardamom powder and saffron mix,
Switch off the store and serve the halwa hot
