Bread Upma

A quickie dish that can be made with your old bread. When I get bored of making Sandwiches or Omelette's, the tangy 'Bread Upma' comes to my rescue.

Bread slices (I have used Wholemeal Bread here)
1 small Onion - chopped
1 small Tomato - chopped
2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
A pinch of Asafoetida
2 tsp Oil
Cumin seeds
Curry Leaves / Kadipatta
2 Green Chillies -chopped
Coriander / Cilantro for garnishing
Little Curds (optional)
Lemon (optional)
Salt to taste

Cut your Bread into cubes. Heat oil in a Wok.
Once the oil is hot, add Cumin Seeds, Curry leaves, Green chillies and Asafoetida.
Saute the onion for some time and once it turns translucent, put in the tomatoes.
Do not cook the tomatoes much. Add Red chilly powder and Turmeric powder. Sprinkle salt.
Put in your Bread cubes, add a dash of lime and garnish with Coriander.
Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle some Curds on top.
Get ready for snack time!!!

The bread upma looks so delicious. My mom used to make it too with leftover bread, and it brought back lots of memories. I love how the crust would crisp up, and with the spices it would be just amazing. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Hi Mansi... I have never had upma before. Looks interesting, would have to make it sometime... Its kind of similar to Panzanella.
