Homemade Breadcrumbs

I always make my own breadcrumbs at home. It can be made in a jiffy and it is a great way to use leftover stale bread slices. I was not planning to do a post on breadcrumbs until I came across a couple during one of my visits to Nilgris supermarket. They were loading their basket with all sorts of frozen foods and ready to eat food packets. Sounds normal to everyone!!! but I am one who is always against these. Why incorporate all sorts of chemicals into your body when you can make them at home cheap and fresh. But I was amazed when the woman took a packet of breadcrumbs from the shelves and dropped it into her basket. Actually I wanted to walk up to her and tell her the recipe to make this @ home but I knew that it would make an embarrassing moment.
So now you would know the reason behind this simple post. I wanted to let people who read my blog to know how simple and easy this is to make.

~*What U Need*~
Left over wheat / white Bread - 4 to 5 slices

How I Made it:
Preheat oven to 180 deg C for 10mins, place the bread slices in the tray and toast for 5-7 mins until the bread slices turn golden brown / microwave in high for 3 mins or till crisp / toast in a pan till brown on both sides. Break the toasted bread slices roughly into pieces and pulse it in mixie as fine as possible. Store in airtight container and refrigerate it.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
