  • 2 cup of fresh white bread crumb, I used 4 slices of bread
  • 3 tbsp clarified butter or ghee
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts
  • 1/4 tbsp cardamom crushed


  • Make the bread crumb, cut the bread in small pieces, and do not remove the edges. I use food processor to make crumb.
  • Dry roast the bread crumb over medium heat in a frying pan, stirring continuously, this will take about 5-6 minutes. Roasted bread crumb will be light golden in color.
  • Sprinkle the sugar and keep roasting. Sugar will be caramelized with bread crumb and will be light brown in color. This process will take about 4 minutes.
  • Add cardamom and milk keep stirring, mixture will be in texture of soft dough.
  • Add butter and roast the mix with butter for another minute, until mix will start leaving the edges. Add the walnuts and fold it with mix. Turn off the heat. And pour it over greased plate.
  • Spread it in square shape 8” x 8” let it sit for about half until it comes to room temperature. Cut them in one inch squares.
  • Delicious burfi is ready. You can store the burfi outside for a week and refrigerate for a month.

  1. Hello madam,

    I tried your Bread burfi recipe and it came very well, but I had added ghee instead of butter. I made it twice.. Thanks for such a simple and delicious recipe 🙂


  2. Sorry Manjula, do you think this recipe could work with stale bread? I have a lot of it because of my family’s restaurant and I’m always looking for new ways to dispose of it.

  3. Hello aunty,
    I tried your bread burfi yesterday. The taste is very yummy, the only thing is that it did not come out like burfi consistency, but like halwa….It remained soft, and was unable to cut it into required shape.. Aunty please let me know where I did the mistake…
    Taste is too yummy….

  4. Hello manjula madam,
    i have been working most of your recipes at home and they came out delicious. Most of your recipes are no onion and no garlic..which helps me try them out even on Vrat days too. Thankful for that too
    This bread burfi is looking delicious. Do i have to use a non stick pan so that it does not stick to pan while stirring??

  5. Dear Manjulaji,
