Bread upma ... simple to make and simple to eat

A simple breakfast or an evening snack... try this and you will love it. It all started when mom used to make it with leftover bread when we were kids. We started loving it so  much that she started buying extra bread especially to make this upma. 

Easy to make and minimal spices makes it a hit...  finally making easy on tummy too. I have loved every time I had. 

Serves... 2 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Bread slices(salted bread/sandwich bread) - 8
Whole red chilli - 1 
Onion medium - 1
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tspn 
Broken urad dal - 1/2 tspn
Curry leaves 
Turmeric - a pinch
Hing/Asafoetida - a pinch
Oil - 1 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Tear up bread slices into 4-5 pieces and stash them into a blender

  • Powder it coarsely. A quick pulse in the blender should do the job well. Dont overdo it as a little texture will make the upma taste better
  • Heat a wide pan and add a tablespoon of oil to it. Add mustard seeds, broken, urad dal, whole red chilli, hing and curry leaves
  • Once the tadka is ready, add finely chopped onions and turmeric powder. Sprinkle little salt and saute till onion turns translucent

  • When onions are ready toss in the bread crumbs that we pulsed in the mixer
  • Give it a good toss and mix everything coat the tadka evenly. Sometimes the breads tends to be too dry. In that case sprinkle a few drops of water and the toss around. Upma will become soft. Dont put too much water as it will make the bread soggy
  • Remove in a serving plate and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee

  • Dont over-pulse bread as it loses the entire texture
  • Use salt mildly as bread already has salt in it
  • If upma is too dry towards the end, add a few drops of water to soften it
