This is not an actual recipe but it does come in handy when we have excess bread at hand and not prefer to buy bread crumbs from the store.Last week we got a loaf of bread not realizing that we still had half a loaf leftover.All I did is tear up  [usually a day old] bread slices from half the loaf and pulse it up in the mixer.Store the bread crumbs in the fridge till it is ready to be used up in the cutlet ,tikkis or kekabs.A whole box of bread crumbs ready in a jiffy else the bread would have ended up in the dustbin.


  • Any type of bread can be used.
  • Do not use stale bread.
  • You can also toast the bread slices before pulsing the slicing.
  • To make seasoned bread crumbs, toast the bread cubes in a skillet on low heat for a few minutes. Remove from heat.When cool pulse it along with the seasoning of your choice like garlic powder / pepper powder / dried basil / oregano etc.

  1. This is super PJ…just what we need to cook up some tasty snacks..:) I like the idea of using almost fresh bread without the need to dry them until crispy…
    Very useful dear..:)

  2. PJ, I haven't tried cookies without eggs but have made cakes without them. I have seen a few recipes which uses one small ripe banana with 1/2 tsp baking soda or 1/4 cup applesauce instead of eggs in cookies. You can also try silken tofu pureed and added to the cookie mix. I haven't personally tried these alternatives I think I have try this myself…:)
    If you give it a try , then let me know..
