Bread Upma - My Comfort Food

Bread Upma used to be always in the menu . I does not turn out to be one of the best tiffin items that i make at home. Sometimes i dont fry the bread properly or sometimes it it over cooked. But this time it turned out to a good one .So here it goes ...



Raw Materials Required


Bread slices - 10 -12
Onions - 1/2 cup (chop into small picies)
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Hing Powder - a couple of pinches
Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urdh Dhal -1/2 tsp
Salt - As per desire
Oil -3-4 tsp
Coriander (few)


Preparation Style


Cut the bread into small piceces and keep them seperately.In a big kadia add oil and mustard seeds.Allow them to crack and add the jeera and urdh dhal. Once they turn brown add the chopped onions and fry them under medium flame.Add haldi and hing and fry them until they turn golden brown.Once you see the onions are brown add the bread picies and mix them well .Add salt and coriander mix them well in high flame. Add a couple of more spoonful of oil and fry them under high flame and then transfer them into a bowl.Serve them hot with tomato sauce.

Bread Upma - Its really nice & very easy to make. I just put 2-3 tbspns of curd on the bread & then add to the pan....Just gives a little sour taste, if u like it!
