  • Cardamom Powder – 1/2 tsp

Procedure :

Microwave the bread pieces for 3 mins in three intervals turning them to other side after every min. They should be crisp. Set them aside.

In a pan heat up ghee, once the ghee is medium hot, add the cashews and fry till they start to change their color, then add in the almonds and fry for 10 secs, they should be nice and golden all over. Remove from the pan and set them aside. Move half of the qualtity of the fried nuts to a blender and make a smooth paste using 2 to 3 Tbsp of water or milk and set it aside.

Into the ghee pan, add oil and heat it up. Once the oil is enough hot, fry the bread pieces till they are golden brown on both the sides. Then keep them aside. Fry all the bread pieces the same way.

    Just a suggestion – add a pinch of saffron to the milk when boiling, it gives a good flavour. BTW this dish is popularly known as a “double ka meetha” in Hyderabad. Goes well as a dessert after having the hyderabadi mutton biryani.

      They both are different recipes. Double ka meetha is a bit richer that this halwa as it has some rabdi on top and the deep fried bread is soaked in sugar syrup.
