Bread Upma

Posted on


Bread upma is a traditional dish which I have enjoyed from my childhood days. Those days it was very simple in the sense that mom was never adding any veggies but just season it for a change in its form. I have modified it just a bit by adding a few veggies and also some dry fruits that go with the rest of the ingredients. It is actually a very crunchy dish which we enjoy as a time pass food not when you are at the hungriest.

What you need to have:

1. Bread pieces 4-5 cups

2. Chopped Capsicum – 1 Cup

3. Fresh Green peas – 1/4 cup

4. Tomato chopped – A handful

5. Kishmish – 2 Tablespoons

6. Chopped onion – 1/4 cup

7. Mustard seeds – 1 Teaspoon

8. Turmeric powder – 1 Teaspoon

9. Chlli powder – 1 Teaspoon

10. Cumin seeds -1/2 Teaspoon

11. Fresh grated coconut – 2 Tablespoons

12. Finely chopped coriander leaves – 2 Tablespoons

13. Cooking oil – 5-6 Teaspoons
