Bread Upma

Bread upma is a superfast recipe and it will be very helpful when you are super tired or when you dont have time to make other dishes on a busy evening. It works for me surprisingly very well on these situations :)

My recipe contains Quite some capsicums. 'Bell Pepper (Capsicum)' are rich in vitamins and anti-oxidants. I prefer Red Capsicum than green as it has twice the content of vitamin C. 1 Red capsicum is as good as consuming 3 oranges, but you can use any capsicum you have . Anyways they get cooked easily :)

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time 15 mins

Serving size :2 

Ingredients:

Wheat bread 1/2 loaf (I prefer Wheat bread, you can use any type of bread you have)

Red capsicum 1 full (chopped) Remove the seeds

Green Peas 1/3 cup

Onion 1/2 big (Finely chopped)

Tomato - 1 large (finely chopped)

turmeric powder 1/4 teaspoon

Mustard and Jeera(Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp each

Green chilli 1 big finely chopped

Butter or oil  1 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Direction:

  • cut the bread slices into small cubes and keep it aside
  • In a tava melt have of the butter, once melted add turmeric powder to it
  • Then add the bread slices to it and fry it until its golden brown. Note that the bread should not be too crispy nor too soft, it brings a very good taste when cooked correctly
  • Remove the bread from the tava and transfer to a bowl.
  • Now in the same pan, melt the remaining butter. Once it is hot add mustard seed after it splitters add Jeera.
  • Then add the finely chopped onion to it, add a pinch of salt. As i say it brings out the moisture quickly.
  • Once the onion turns transparent, add tomato, salt, green chilli, peas and capsicum then stir before covering it with a lid so that it gets cooked.
  • Then add the cooked bread and mix them well to the vegetables and close the lid once again for a minute.

And Our delicious bread upma is ready :D
