  7. Let it cool down to room temperature. If not using right away (What??? you can wait to eat it ?? Admiring your patience..really ! ) store it in airtight containers.
  8. For serving, arrange the bread pieces on a plate, pour some imli khajur chutney , some potato and boondi, some generous spoons of whisked curd(use less curd if you like to bite on crispy bread, and add more if you like to relish some soft bread dunked in curd...make a choice ! ).
  9. Garnish with pepper powders and chaat masala and some fresh coriander leaves.You can also use some thin Sev (Nylon sev).
  10. Relish immediately, you don't want those nagging thoughts of calories, weight, deep fried taboo stuff to spoil the show..so hurry up, gobble it down before any revolting thoughts strike your mind...Enjoy !
