Bread halwa

Bread Halwa is a famous sweet in muslim community. I guess a same set of menu is repeated in most muslim marriages and of course, this halwa turns to be a hit /must and going well with the indian crowd…I got the recipe from Chennai Food guide page, during their Biryani cookout workshop. I have already posted their Brinjal thokku recipe here…While making the halwa, the expert well explained that breads needs to be more browner to get the actual taste of halwa. She deep fried all the breads in one go…I was guilty to do the same. I took time and toasted the bread to dark brown with oil…So, you can try either way.
