  3. Hi Renu,

    Thank you for trying bread halwa. Even I like this dessert very much.

  4. Hi
    I am Lahari. I am searching for this recipe from long back. Finally i got here. But how much quantity we have to take the milk and upto how many minutes the bread should be in milk? Thank you.

  5. Hi Lahari,

    Just to dip the fried bread pieces in milk. No need of taking milk in exact volume. It is takes approximately 1 - 1 1/2 cups.

    The bread should be soaked in milk around a minute. By the time you fry the next bread slice this should be taken off from milk.

    For this use a good quality of ghee. It tastes better.

    All the best Lahari.
