Easy Bread Halwa Recipe - Diwali Sweets Recipes

Bread halwa is one thing which i wanted to try for very long time. I have never tasted this before, but i am sure it will taste good and similar to wheat halwa. Since it is diwali i decided to give this a go and it turned out to be super yummy.

This recipe is very simple and basic. You just need a handful of ingredients which you might already have on hand. This halwa is so easy and it gives a good amount of halwa with just few slices of bread. So if you make a bigger batch, you can store this in fridge and whenever you want, you can heat it again in microwave or in a small pan and enjoy hot or warm.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
