Easy to make Bread Dessert, when you find extra slices of bread in the refrigerator and have no clue how to use them up ;)
  White bread slices 5
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs) (To Taste)
  Whole milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Clarified butter 3 Tablespoon (ghee)
  Raisins 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Cashews 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Cardamom powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon

Heat a skillet and melt 2 tbs of clarified butter. Roast the bread slices on both sides until lightly browned (you may use more ghee if needed). Keep aside.

Making a sugar syrup by adding 1.5 cup water to 1 cup sugar and boil for 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Arrange the roasted bread slices in a deep dish and pour the sugar syrup over the slices. Allow it to absorb.

Boil Milk for approximately 10 minutes and gently pour over the bread slices. Fork the slices to break them down and become mushy.

Heat 1 tbs of ghee and roast the cashews and raisins. Pour on top of the bread slices. Sprinkle cardamom powder. Allow it to cool.

Can be served hot or cold.
