So simple n flavorful..yet made the authentic way !!
Yumm yumm i'm lovin it !!
**Old bread works great for this as it absorbs less oil n gets crunchier n golden real quick..
** If you are using the fresh bread , sun dry them for an hour or so n use..
** If staying in cold countries like me where sun is just a guest ...toast in the oven on 180°c / 350°f for 12 to 15 mins until dried n slightly crisp..
Make n enjoy with your family n friends !!
We love it hope you will love it too !!
