Bread Upma

Bread Upma
Upma is usually made of Sooji, Dhalia, or Semiya
I post now an Upma that is different.
It is Bread Upma

Ingredients Needed
1. Bread Slices - 15 (White or Brown)
2. Curd - 2 Tbsp
3. Chilli Powder - According to taste
4. Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
5. Garam Masala Powder - 1/4 tsp
6. Onions - 2 (Chopped lengthwise)
7. Tomato - 1 chopped finely
8. Grated Carrot - 1/2 cup
9. Fennel Seeds (Sombu) - 1/4 tsp
10. Grated Ginger - 1/4 tsp
11. Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
12. Slit Green Chillies - 2
13. Cooking Oil - 3 to 4 Tablespoons
14. Salt - to taste

1. Cut Bread slices into bite size pieces.
2. In a large bowl, put curd, Salt, Chilli Powder, Turmeric Powder,Garam masala powder and mix well.
3. In that mixture add the bread pieces and marinate for about 20 minutes.
4. Take a Big sized Non-Stick Pan, Heat oil and temper with Mustard and Fennel Seeds.
5. Now Add Slit Green Chillies, Onion and fry till colour changes and then add Tomato pieces.
6. Cook this for 5 minutes in Medium flame, now goes grated Carrot, Marianted Bread Pieces,Grated Ginger and cook in slow flame for 20 minutes or till crisp.
7. Garnish with Coriander Leaves.

~ Stomach Filling Soft and Crunchy Bread Upma.~

1. Cashew Nuts can be added to give crunchy bites
2. Garnishing with Lemon juice is optional.
3. Before making Upma, 15 slices may look huge, but after cooking, it will be just fine for 3 servings.
4. Always use one day old bread for better result.

Hi Menu today,
Good recipe of tomato sauce.
I try three different home made tomato ketchup.
But not use onion with ketchup. With onion it makes good and different in taste.
I will try ketchup with use of onions. When we use onion they store for one year?
Bread Upma is very creative and easy to cook.
Thanks for sharing.
