Homemade Breadcrumbs

Hi All ....
  Breadcrumb is an important ingredient in making tikkis, cutlet and other fried starters. I had 2-3 days old bread which became little hard and dry ...I tried breadcrumbs out of it and it worked. Simple and easy way to make breadcrumbs at home.


For plain breadcrumbs
4-5 slices of bread (wheat or white bread)

For flavoured one: 
4-5 slices of bread (wheat or white bread)
2-3 tsp olive oil
Oregano, chilly fakes
Salt

Method:

  1. Place the slices on the baking tray.
  2. Sprinkle olive oil, oregano, chilly flakes and salt.
  3. Keep them in oven at 180 c for 25-30 mins.
  4. Keep checking in between.
  5. When it becomes brown in colour, remove from oven.
  6. Roughly break the toasted bread into the grinder.
  7. Grind it into fine powder.
  8. Your breadcrumbs are ready.
  9. Store it in airtight container.

For plain one:
Same procedure but skip step 2 mentioned above.
But what I personally experienced is instead of keeping the slices in oven for 25-30 mins, keep them in the toaster for 2 mins.
It will also make the slices evenly brown and crispy too.
Remaining from step 6.

Or you can toast the slices on tava till they become brown and crispy.
Once the slices cool down then only break them into the grinder.
