Bread apple vadas are the unique dish I learnt from food These are the sweet delights for kids. It is best to prepare when therez any leftover sugar syrup at home for eg rasgulla's leftover or gulab jamoon syrup. Its healthy and nutritious because therez an addition of wheat bread and apple fruit.


4 Wheat breads.

1 Apple's puree.

1/4 Cup Chopped nuts.
