Once you try these homemade croutons, you will never go back to the store-bought ones.  These croutons are ridiculously easy to make with your favorite Indian spices.  It is not only so delicious in salads, it can be served as a snack too.  
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 15 to 18 minutes
Yield: 3 cups

The measurements are approximate.  I used these measurements for 1 pack, about 8 small buns.

  • Any kind of slightly stale bread - 1 loaf, cubed, (I used Brat Buns)
  • Kasoori methi - 2 tbsp, crushed
  • Chat masala - 1 tbsp
  • Tandoori masala - 1 tbsp
  • Ground black pepper - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil - 1/4 cup

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients, except the bread.
  3. Add the cubed bread pieces and toss to coat.
  4. Place the the bread cubes in a single layer on a baking tray.  Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  5. Cool and store in an airtight container.
