My husband just got a promotion at his workplace last week. We were all really ecstatic and happy for him. It is a long-held tradition in my house to prepare desserts whenever we get some good news. Usually, I stick to the classic Indian sweets, or whip out a dessert made up of chocolate. This time, I tried to do something different. I decided to go the unconventional way and prepare a dessert made out of stale leftover bread. For Bread Pudding, I used a casserole to layer the sweet. I have used both milk (doodh) and condensed milk to obtain a nice texture. Corn flour also has been used as a thickening agent, which imparts a pudding consistency to the dish. The milk mixture should be boiled properly and carefully over medium heat. Some aromatic spices have been added to enhance the flavour, all of which can be added according to taste. The pudding in the casserole is baked for it set in a fine way. Tuti fruity can be sprinkled on top to add extra crunch. This Bread Pudding recipe is a must-try for those who are tired of the regular desserts, and are looking forward to not playing it safe.
