Bread Jamun | Eggless Bread Pudding | Festival Recipes

Bread Jamun is a very simple and quick dessert which can be made with left-over bread. Recently, after having done with my Badusha preparation, I was left with the surplus sugar syrup as I normally prepare more than the required quantity of syrup for hassle-free soaking of the Badushas. I also have a saver-recipe to make best use of this extra syrup, which my amma used to do in minutes for a quick dessert to serve surprise guests. It is a rich, creamy and decadent dessert that is an Indian variation of the traditional English-style bread pudding. Do you have bread, oil, sugar and milk on hand? Then, why not whip up this Bread jamun for a surprise treat?

1. Remove the bread crusts cut into bit sized cubes.
2.  Roast the nuts in a teaspoon of oil / ghee and keep aside. Bring milk to boil in a wide pan and simmer for 15- 20mins until it thickens to 3/4 cup. It will be of condensed milk consistency.

3.  While is milk is getting done,fry the bread cubes in oil until golden brown and transfer to a kitchen towel.

5.  Soak the fried bread pieces in sugar syrup for 5 minutes and transfer to a wide bowl. Finally, pour the thickened milk over it and garnish with nuts.

6.  Serve warm or cold with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream.
