- Preheat the oven to 350°. Lightly oil a medium baking dish. Spread the bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until dry but not browned.
- In a large bowl, whisk the Saha Tandoori Marinade with the eggs and beat until well combined. Add the milk and continue to blend until a uniform mixture is formed.
