Aw.. so cute. your daughter looks adorable.

Great tip about the hot oil.. Nice recipe.. the one thing I'd do differently is cover the pan with foil - makes cleaning up so much easier.

really Yummy. can we make breadcrumbs at home? bcz i don't find them in my grossery store.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@MadhuYes u can make breadcrumbs at home, just toast some bread in a toaster and toast them, then cool it and powder it. Or you can even powder rusk which you can get from store. You can dry bread in oven for few minutes till it turns cripsy, powder it. If you want fresh breadcrumbs, chop up bread slices put it in freezer till it is frozen, then powder it in mixie, you can store this in ziploc bag in freezer.
