There are always days when you find that there are food items left over from the previous week that you just don't feel like eating, but you also don't have the heart to throw them. I always seem to have couple of bread slices like that. That is when I got the idea of making Bread Upma. The recipe is simple and gets done within a couple of minutes.
Bread Slices - 6-7
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp (for tossing)
Onion - 1 medium sized
Tomato - 1
Ginger - 1/2 tsp chopped
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves and Coriander - For Garnish
Toast the bread slices in a toaster or tava till they are crispy. Cut into small pieces and toss it with salt and chilli powder. Keep aside. In a hot pan, add oil. When oil is hot, add mustard seeds. Once mustard seeds finish popping, add onion and fry till slight brown. Add tomato and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add chilli powder and fry for 2 minutes. Add salt as per taste. Add bread pieces and toss for 1-2 minutes. Garnish with curry leaves and coriander.
Bread Upma is ready and yummy!!!
P.S: Tomato ketchup is a good accompaniment for this dish.
