Bread Poha Recipe

Bread PohaMy recipe is very simple and quick.  A nice way to use left over bread to make a quick fix snack.  You need just a few ingredients to make this and a filling breakfast or tiffin for your kids is ready to pack.  I have added some buttermilk to soften it, but you can also sprinkle some water or avoid both if you want to make it crisp.
