Cut the bread slices to cubes as shown.

Heat oil/ghee in a kadai, when the oil is hot enough, add the cut bread pieces until they turn to golden brown color. Drain it out of the oil.

Similarly fry all the bread pieces in batches and keep it ready.

In a pan, heat about 1 tbsp of ghee, add cashew nuts and fry to light golden color, then add raisins and fry until they turn puffy and transfer them to a plate.

Transfer all the nuts and raisins to a plate. To the same pan add all the fried bread pieces.

Add the boiled and cooled milk to the bread pieces.

Mix everything really well on low flame.

The bread pieces will start to absorb all the milk and become mushy.

Add 1/2 cup of sugar and mix in really well.

Keep stirring really well until everything is well combined.

Add 1 tbsp of ghee and cook everything really well.

Slowly the color of the bread halwa will change and the ghee will start to release on the sides.
