Recipe type: Upma
Cuisine: Indian
  • Bread - 8 slices (I used wheat bread)
  • Onion - 1, finely chopped
  • Tomato - 1, finely chopped
  • Frozen/ Fresh Green Peas - 3 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder - ⅛ tsp
  • Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
  • Cumin Powder - ½ tsp
  • Garam Masala - ½ tsp
  • kitchen king masala - ½ tsp
  • Chilli Powder – ½ tsp
  • Curry leaves -few
  • Salt -as needed
  • Cooking spray / oil - to grease the baking tray (I used cooking spray)
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F, and place the bread in oven. Bake on both sides (around 7 minutes each and turning the bread in between) or until bread becomes crispy. Turn off the oven and let the bread stays in the oven
  2. In a pan heat oil and when the oil becomes hot, add curry leaves and onion, saute till onion becomes translucent, then add tomato and cook
  3. Once onion and tomato are cooked, add turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, salt, sambar powder and garam masala and cook for 2-3 minutes
  4. Take the bread from the oven;cut into pieces
  5. Add the bread pieces to the masala, gently mix until the masala coats well. Serve hot to enjoy the crispy bread upma
1. Baking bread is optional. You can even toast/ grill the bread
2. Baked Bread upma tastes great if served immediately
3. You can use plain bread and make upma avoiding baking
4. Ginger garlic paste can be added
5. Oatnut, mulitgrain, maida bread etc. can also be used
6. Usually i temper the upma with mustard seeds and channa dal, missed doing that, while taking the picture
7. You can bake the bread and keep it in the turned off oven for 45 minutes - 1 hour and quickly saute the bread with the masala before serving. By doing this way Bread upma will be crsipy instead of soggy texture
