HOW TO MAKE BREAD HALWA|www.foodieadamcookieeve.com

Bread Halwa from Tamil Muslim Weddings is so far, the best I have tasted. The melt in mouth, yet crunchy edged, sweetened bread chunks satisfy your taste buds totally, especially after an elaborate wedding meal :) Thanks to Ali ji for sharing such a fool proof recipe. I have tweaked it a little to make it easier for a non-halwai. Here is a wedding meal style biriyani platter that I prepared for ramzan - Mutton biriyani, Ennai Kathirikai, Bread halwa, Raita. With this festive recipe, I would like to share that I have taken up photography & marketing for her  new food start up - Namma Biriyani.. Do check out and share some love :)

Deuteronomy 28:8


“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

 



Do you remember the story of King Midas and his golden touch? He made a wish that everything he touched would turn into gold, and his wish came to pass. He touched his food, the trees in his garden and his palace, and they all turned into gold! Then, he hugged his daughter whom he loved very much and she immediately turned into a gold statue!

God’s way is better and it has no side effects. He wants to bless everything you touch. The Bible says, “The Lord will command the blessing on you…and in all to which you set your hand…” This means that whatever you touch, whatever you set your hands to, God will command the blessing upon it, be it a person, thing or business. So if you touch your child, he is blessed. If you touch your guitar, anointed music flows forth. If you touch your business, it prospers. When you touch a sick person, he gets healed. When you touch someone who is facing lack, his needs are met. God can command His blessing on all to which you set your hands! :) Lets check the recipe!
