Leftover Recipe: Bread Chiwda


We'd made this yesterday. This recipe is great when you have 3-4 slices of bread left and the expiry date is on the same day. We're obsessed with checking expiry dates on the packs of bread. We usually choose such a pack that would be expired in 3 to 4 days. We're not heavy bread eaters; we have bread only when there's something like Pav Bhaji, Misal, Sandwiches, etc. But nowadays, we've been buying bread for breakfast or post-workout snack. 



This leftover recipe is one of my family's favourite dishes. We usually have it as breakfast or as evening snacks. It's easy and quick to make.
Without further due, let's get into the ingredients!
