  • 100 grams butter
  • 2-3 green cardamoms choti elaichi
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 slices of white bread roughly torn into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup sugar you may adjust the amount to your taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence


  • In a medium sized saucepan, add the butter and let it melt. Add the cardamom and let it sizzle for a few seconds.
  • Mix all of the other ingredients in a bowl, and pour this mixture into the saucepan.
  • Keep the heat very low, and keep stirring so that the eggs don’t scramble.
  • After about 5-7 minutes of cooking on low heat, increase the heat and cook the egg halwa until it becomes thick and starts leaving the sides of the saucepan.
  • The egg halwa needs to be cooked until it’s light golden and you can see the butter coming to the surface of the halwa.
  • This will take about 10-15 minutes of cooking on high heat, and stirring every few minutes or so.
  • Once the halwa is ready, transfer it to a serving dish and garnish with slivered pistachios.
