Cooking with Leftovers - Part 2 - Bread Pudding

For all those vegetarians out there here is an easy and quick dessert to cook up and with leftovers. Some cold milk straight from the fridge and some stale bread is what you need to whisk this dessert. By stale I mean the last few pieces that keep lying there waiting for salvation :) not knowing whether they will end up in the dustbin or will be given away to the maid. These pieces tend to be a little harder and are best suited for this recipe.

Without writing my usual stories this time I just want to get with the recipe for a change :)

You will need:

  • Bread - 2-3 cups, cut into bite sized pieces

  • Cold Milk - 2-3 cups

  • Sugar - 3/4 cup

  • Raisins - A handful

  • Ghee - 2-3 tbsp


  1. Take a pan and rest the bread pieces on the bottom of the pan.

  2. Add the cold milk on top of this bread pieces. Basically the bread peices should be completely immersed in the milk. Else you can add some more cold milk.

  3. Let the bread pieces soak in this milk for an hour or so.

  4. Now turn on the heat and let the milk simmer slowly. This may take some time and you may have to stir it once in a while.

  5. Once the bread and milk are all combined add the sugar.

  6. Keep stirring at this point in time and add the ghee.

  7. Continue stirring and ensure that the pudding does not get burnt.

  8. Finally add the raisins into the pudding.

  9. The Bread Pudding is ready to serve. Although I must say that it is better eaten cold then warm.

An interesting thing to note that this pudding is somewhat similar to the baked version except that this does not have any eggs. Enjoy your Pudding!!

P.S: You do not need to cut the sides of the bread.
