Everytime I have leftover bread slices I make these fritters, the last time I made was on a rainy day and all of my cousins enjoyed them with hot tea.

Every time I have some leftover bread slices I make this and serve it with tomato ketchup and chutney...To serve them immediately is very important and my family enjoys them the most during monsoons and winters...

This dish is not exactly healthy but it is too delicious! A good way of using left over bread. Loved the crisp on the outside.
