Bread Upma

Upma is a common breakfast in most south Indian homes. Usually made using semolina or vermicelli, sometimes we also use bread to make this spicy upma.

Bread Upma

2 slices Bread (stale is fine)
1 cup Milk (OR) Yogurt

2 medium Potatoes, boiled and chopped
2 large Onions, chopped
1/2 cup cooked Peas
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
1 tsp Oil
2 Green Chillies, sliced fine
1 pinch Turmeric
1 tsp Salt

2-3 sprigs Cilantro, chopped fine, for garnish

Cut bread into small pieces. Soak the bread in the milk or yogurt for 2-3 minutes.

Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When the mustard begins to splutter, add the chillies, onions, turmeric and salt. Stir fry until the onions are tender and translucent.

Add the potatoes and peas. Toss to combine. Add the soaked bread cubes and stir-fry. Garnish with cilantro.
