Bread Pokada. First time i ate this bread pokada in faizabad after my marriage. It was good but some how i din't like it that much, i felt it was too oily. Most of the time when we go to my in-laws place, my elder brother in-law brings this bread pokada from his favorite shop for breakfast, because my hubby like's to eat this oily stuffs sometime. He was telling me from a long time to cook break pokada, i also use to tell him ask me anything to cook i will cook for you immediately except bread pokada. On last saturday he had gone for a hair cut and i felt this is the right time i should cook few bread pokada before he come's home, but before i prepare to cook he was home :) After seeing me cooking he was happy. I served with some mint chutney, tomato sauce and hot ginger tea.
