Can this recipe be made without curds because sometimes curds might be sour which does not go down well with bread?

   Hi Anuradha, use curd which is fresh and not sour.

Should the bread pieces be pan fried or deep fried?

   Hi, The bread pieces have to be combined with the curds as mentioned in the recipe...

The dish tasted good but we ended up adding a lot of curd. So an exact measurement of curd will be an helpful enhancement to the documentation of this recipe. Thanks a tonne :-)
