I did exactly as you told, however the whole thing becomes like a paste. Is it because I soaked the bread for more time (5 min) or is it because I didnt drain the water ? I feel if we just sprinkle some water on the slices and then break them into pieces it will be good.

In your recipe, since we soak the bread in water, after crumbling it becomes a paste. Could you give any suggestions for me ?

This snack works great even if you dont soak the bread in water. Just cut the bread into small cubes and add to the dish.
