When the syrup gets one thread consistency, turn off the flame. Sugar syrup is ready. 

Break the bread slices and place them in mixture jar to make crumbs. Ground all the bread slices similarly to make crumbs. Take out the bread crumbs in a bowl, add some ghee and add thickened milk little by little to it and knead soft dough. Cover the dough and keep it aside for 10 minutes to set. Meanwhile cut cashews and almonds in small chunks.
