Breada Usli/Upkari

Breada usli/Upkari is  often prepared as an  evening snack  whenever there is leftover bread.But I prepare it for morning breakfast also as it is everyone's favourite at our place.This is a quick fix to satisfy the hungry tummies.This is one of my favourite snack and the best part of this is I enjoy picking the seasonings to eat especially the roasted Urad dal. Normally we prepare this little sweetish but one may adjust the taste as per their likes.As a kid I used to see my Aayi(granny) preparing this for Ajja on Sunday evenings and she used to give me special treatment as it was my favourite.
