Bread is used in many ways in different countries. We can toast it, make a sandwich or even have it fresh with butter & jam. Here i have used bread in a typical Indian style dish.

Big onions - 2 nos

Cut the bread in to small cubes. Sprinkle some water, mix it & keep it covered for sometime. Chop the onions, tomato & green chilies in to small pieces. Heat oil in a pan & fry the mustard seeds. Add the urud dal & fry for sometime. Add the chopped green chilies & onions. Fry till the onions become pale in colour. Then add the tomato pieces & fry for some time. Add the turmeric powder & enough salt. Then add the soaked bread pieces & mix it all well & fry for sometime. Bread upma is ready.
We can skip the tomato in the upma. Instead we can add finely chopped vegetables like beans , carrots, peas & potatoes to the upma.
- Always use non-sweetened bread for the upma. For those who like it a little sweet, you can use sweet bread & make it.
- While sprinkling the bread with water, make sure that all pieces of bread are completely soaked but don't over soak it.
- Add the salt to the vegetables & mix it well before adding the bread so that the salt spreads evenly.
Taste it & enjoy.
