Bread crumbs burfi/fudge recipe

     As I had mentioned here about a packet of bread crumbs lying in my pantry for a long time and then using it in my nut sponge cake. I had still some remaining and I was looking for a way to use it up. It was then I saw a recipe in this blog quite accidently actually when I was looking for something else, but am glad I found it. I made them immediately and it was quite delicious. There are amazing ways to use up the bread crumbs , isn't it? The bread crumbs imparted a slight crunch to the fudge, that is what I loved about them the most.

bread crumbs burfi
Ingredients-
Bread crumbs- 1 cup
Grated coconut- 1 cup
Semolina- 1/2 cup
Ghee- 2tbsp
Raisins - a handful(you can use almonds and cashews too)
Milk- 1tbsp
Sugar-1/2 cup( I use fine granulated sugar)
Cardamom powder- 1tsp

Method-
  Heat the ghee in a pan. Add the raisins and remove from flame and keep them aside. In the same pan, Add the bread crumbs,grated coconut and semolina and roast for 2 minutes. Now add the sugar followed by cardamom powder. Cook till the sugar dissolves and a thick mass of the mixture forms. Add the milk. Mix well. Place this mixture on a well greased (grease with ghee) plate. Level the mixture with a knife or a spatula.Cut them into squares or diamonds. Store them in air tight containers. Its is better to consume this in 48 hours.
