  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • A few stalks of cilantro, chopped
  • Slice the ends of the bread (necessary).
  • Cut them into cubes .
  • Spread them on a baking sheet and toast them in a 350F oven for 5-10 minutes until done.
  • Or you can fry then in oil until it become crisp.
  • Meanwhile take the thick yogurt and place it in a bowl
  • Add the cumin powder, chillies, salt and cilantro. Beat it well.
