Bread Poha Recipe

This is one of the simplest snack anyone can make with the least of ingredients. Very tasty & healthy too!!. The best part about this snack is that you can use stale bread & curd n still dish out a very tasty dish. Staler the bread, tastier the poha!!. I don't mean something as old as an year but some bread kept in fridge for a week or two will do good. Even the dahi could be sour(Khatta). Also while cooking it might stick to the sides of the kadai, make sure to include that in the final outcome as the crunchyness of the dish improves. You could even replace the dahi with some lemon but the dish tastes best with dahi.
