Whenever I’m in the mood for a bold but quick breakfast, nothing beats a warm bowl of Bread Upma! I’ve spiced up the version I grew up with using some Chinese sauces, peanuts, and sesame. With that crisp yet melt-in-your-mouth texture and comforting flavor, this Bread Upma is the breakfast of your dreams!
Cut the bread slices in cubes and keep them aside.
In a large pan, heat some oil. Add in your cumin seeds and curry leaves and let crackle.
Then add in your onions and green chilies and saute till the onions are translucent.
Now add tomatoes, green peppers, corn or any veggies of your choice. Mix all the spices and sauces, and cook for 5-6 minutes till the tomatoes are little soft.
Add water, mix it well and let it simmer.
Then add the bread cubes, mix well and let it soften for 7-8 minutes until it's just right. I like my bread little bit crispy.
Finish it off with some peanuts, sesame and cilantro, and your Bread Upma is ready to enjoy!
