I made this on my son's request. He saw this in a t.v show and wanted it. He loved it and more than him my toddler kept asking me for more :) I used the Sara Lee blueberry bread and since it is already sweet, i didn't use much sugar and i used just a spoon of ghee. So, it isn't as bad as any other junk food.
Bread slices - 3
Sugar - 1 spoon (increase if using regular bread)
Milk - 1/2 cup (increase if the bread is dry)
saffron a pinch
Ghee one spoon
Raisins and cashews - a handful
Crumble the bread slices. In a non stick pan, add few drops of ghee and saute the bread pieces for 2 minutes. Add milk, saffron and sugar and saute till the milk is evaporated and the bread is kind of mushy. Heat the rest of the ghee and add the raisins and cashew and fry till the cashews are golden brown and add it to the bread pongal and mix well.
Since i made it for my kids, i am sending this to Alka's Just For You and Preety's Cooking For Kids which was originally started by Sharmi from N e i v e d y a m.
