  1. I have used old Milk Bread in this recipe. You could use Brown bread, Multi Grain Bread, or any other variety.

  2. It is better to use stale bread. It will have less moisture, and will be crisp when toasted. If you are deep frying the bread, it of course does not matter if the bread is fresh or old.

  3. Cut the bread slices into square pieces and lay it out to dry so that the moisture is reduced.

  4. Toast the bread pieces on a low flame. Keep turning often to avoid burning. When the bread turns firm like rusk pieces, take it off the flame.

  5. Shake off the powdery part before toasting the bread. The powder tends to get burnt soon.

  6. I have toasted the bread pieces on a low flame in a pan, turning them constantly to prevent the pieces from getting charred. You could toast the bread in the Oven or in a Toaster to get the bread toasted evenly crisp.


  1. Fry the Garlic on a low flame just till it gets to a light brown colour. It will fry further when we add other ingredients. If we fry the garlic fully in the first instant, it will burn badly by the time we finish all the other ingredients. Burnt Garlic is rancid to taste and the whole dish will taste bitter at the end.
