Time taken – 30 minutes

Normally i prefer to have bread for breakfast or tiffin only if i need a break from  the kitchen for sure.  Now a days varieties of  bread is available not only in the bakery but also in other huge mahals.  We are very much familiar with Bread sandwitch stuffed with cheese, egg, mushroom and veg masala etc.  Today this halwa which i would like to put up is totally new to me and for my surprise it was served in one of my friends house.  I just borrowed this recipe from her and is really yummy and can be relished with minimum sugar.  It is so yummy and melts in the mouth and feel to crave for the same again!!!Here it goes;

1. Bread – 1 loaf

2. Pure ghee – 3/4 – 1 cup

3. Almonds – 2 Tablespoons(a few to grind & a few to garnish)
