Swapna’s Kitchen ,which I started in July 2014 is celebrating 4 years.I just love cooking and being an housewife was my full time job,I never thought I would become a food blogger.I do remember how I struggled to edit the pictures and align them with my post before I hit the publish button.Without my brother RATHAN this wouldn’t have been possible for me,he has been the greatest motivator who has made my blog successful.
When it comes to celebration , I always prefer making Indian sweets for they are rich and sweet with the addition of all royal ingredients.I’d love to share this Bread Halwa recipe without using milk,this is served in most of the muslim weddings with Briyani.I have shallow fried the bread pieces,you can also deep fry them in ghee for a richer version.Trim the browned parts of the bread if yo want to ,also add nuts and raisins as per your taste.Do try this delicious treat for your loved ones at home.
