Bread Poha Recipe

My today's 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.
