Firstly I must thank all the participants for sending such innovative and tasty recipes using various breads. One can try out so many sweets and savouries using a bread from the wonderful array of preparations…A great enthusiasm shown by all participants .
I am rounding off this event in two sections in the same post, the first part has entries from countries other than India and part B has entries from India, this has helped me choose the winner for the cookbook from the Indian subcontinent as this month has no CSN giveaway.
I do want to make a humble request to all the participants, kindly read the format and rules carefully before sending in the entries. I’m sure all my blogger friends who have hosted events would agree with me that rounding off the event is a very time consuming procedure and if the entries sent are not in proper format and not complying with the rules, the host’s job increases manifold. Please spend an extra minute to read the rules carefully, this will surely help your host and will also eliminate your re-efforts.
These are the entries which I have acknowledged through email. I have not accepted entries which did not comply with the rules of the event so kindly excuse me for that. Please check that your links are functioning properly and all your entries that I have accepted are here. In case I have missed out something please shoot me a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will correct it, and do understand that the mistake was never intended.

It can easily take the place of a fancy dessert and your guests will love it. And so will all the children

3 4--5 clove pieces
4 1 teaspoon cardamom (elaiche) powder
5 1/4 cup sugar
6 1 pack of sweetened condensed milk
7 hand full of dry fruits of your choice, finely chopped . I use almonds (badam), pista, cashunuts (kaju)
1. Cut the bread into small square pieces. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
2. Heat ghee is a pan. Add the clove pieces and cardamom power. Add half the sugar and fry for a minute. Now add the bread pieces and fry till they change colour slightly and become crisp. Now add all the remaining sugar and stir the pudding for 4- 5 minutes.
