Bread Upma

Each time my hubby gets me a bread packet and wanted me to have it for my breakfast but never till now in the past 2 years I opened it,the bread packet simply lays on the fridge and goes into trash can after it gets expired.This time I decided not to waste it as I myself got this for my dad who visited us last week,so made Bread Upma which is a bookmarked recipe for long time.I got this recipe online,saw video of Sanjeev Kapoor and tried it by adding few ingredients to my taste.Thanks to the great Chef.


Bread Slice:10 no(Toasted and cut each slice into 9 squares)
Onion:1 medium(finely chopped)
Capsicum:1 medium(finely chopped)
Carrot:1(peeled and grated)
Green Peas:1/2 cup(I used Frozen)
Tomato:1 big(chopped)
Ginger:1/2 spn(grated)
Green Chillies:To Taste
Tomato Ketchup:4-5 spns
Coriander Powder:1 spn
Mustard:1/2 spn
Urad Dal:1/2 spn
Cumin Seeds:1/2 spn
Chenna Dal:1/2 spn
Oil:2 spns


1.Heat oil in apan,when hot add cumin seeds,mustard,urad dal,chenna dal and fry till thry tirn golden color,now add the curry leaves,green chillies,grated ginger and fry till chillies are done.
2.Now add onion and fry till they turn soft,add capsicum,grated carrot,green peas and fry for 3-4 mins.When the capsicum turn soft add the chopped tomato,mix and cook them covered till tomatoes become smooth.At this time add the salt,coriander powder and fry for a min now add the tomato ketchup,mix evenly and sprinkle few drops of water.Make sure u dont add more water as this make the dish mushy.
3.Finally add the toasted and cut bread pieces,toss well so that all the bread pieces are well coated with the sauce and let it sit on low flame for 2-3 mins,turn off the heat and ready to serve.
4.U can add little lemon juice to this if u like.I added lemon juice jst before eating and it tasted good.

U can use the bread directly to the sauce without toasting it but I did toast to my taste.
