We make Bread Usli (spicy bread) very often either for breakfast or a quick evening snack, but I remember eating this crispy bread snack at an aunt’s place and had completely forgotten about it, until last week when talking to amma she mentioned about Brun (a crusty bread that is available in a bakery close to home). That was when I thought I should make this and keep handy to munch on at anytime!

This is what you’ll need

Crusty bread: 6 (bun shaped or 1 loaf)

Mustard seeds: 1½tsp

Cumin seeds: 1tsp

Green chillies: 4

Hing (asafoetida): 1/4tsp

Curry leaves: Few

Salt to taste

Ghee: 2tsp

Let’s get cooking

1. Cut the bread into small pieces. Chop the green chillies finely and tear the curry leaves.

2. Heat the oil and season with the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, hing, green chillies and curry leaves.

3. Add the bread, salt and fry on a low flame until crisp.

4. When completely cool store in an air tight tin. Eat as a snack or can even be used as croutons in soup.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes
