Instant Bread Upma / Spicy stirfried Bread

Bread Upma was the Indian twist to the International Bread. It is tempered in the Indian way to suit our taste buds.

   Bread upma will be instant dish to make within minutes. It requires no special ingredients. When we are running out of vegetables or less any vegetables in hand , this upma comes to rescue. It will be excellent for lunch box too.

  I feel that having bread upma when it was still warm will be delicious than when it was had as cold. So prepare and have immediately. 

Vegetables can also be added along with this to make it more healthy. Leftover / dry bread can be used in making this simple yet filling meal.

Requirements :
Bread slices – 4
Onion – 1
Tomato – 2
Green chillies – 4
Oil – 1 tsp
Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp
Salt as required
Curry leaves – a sprig

Method :
Chop the onion , tomato and green chillies.
Cut the bread slices into small pieces.
Heat oil in a pan , add the mustard seeds and let it crackle.
Add in the chopped onion and green chillies , curry leaves , sauté well.

When the onion pieces become transparent , add in the chopped tomato and sauté well.
Add the turmeric powder and  required salt , mix well.
When the tomato pieces are mashed well , add in the bread pieces and toss.

Close the lid and let it cook in medium flame for two minutes.
This is to soften the bread pieces.

Stir well and take off from flame.

Chopped coriander leaves can be added. Few drops of lemon juice can also be added.

Instant bread upma is ready to serve.
It was with the taste of sweet , spicy and tangy.
