Pudla is a batter spread on the tava made from besan/gram flour and water, with turmeric, minced chilies, green peppers, onions, chilli powder, lime juice, salt, cilantro and tomato. Once the batter is spread on the tava, it's cooked till both sides are turned into golden brown.
Bread Pudla is very similar to that but just using white or wheat bread. The taste is amazing and the nutrients in the dish are a additional benefit especially if your children are against eating veggies.
