INSTANT BREAD UPMA

Bread Upma is a simple yet flavourful quick breakfast recipe, which can be made in minutes.

INGREDIENTS:
8 slices White Bread (preferably 1/2 days old bread)
1 Potato (peeled & parboiled)
1 medium Onion (finely chopped)
10 Curry Leaves
2 tbsps finely chopped Coriander Leaves
1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/3 tsp Red Chilli powder (optional)
2 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
1/3 tsp minced Ginger
1 tsp Split White Lentil (Urad Dal)
1 tsp Bengal Gram Lentil (Chana Dal)
2 tsps Fresh Lemon Juice
Salt to taste
4 tbsps Oil

METHOD:
Break bread slices in small pieces with the crust by using your hand. Set aside.

Cut parboiled potato in small cubes and keep it aside.

Heat oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds in it. Saute for 30-40 seconds, till mustard seed crackles and cumin changes its colour. Now add asafoetida white lentil, bengal gram lentil and curry leaves in it. Saute for another 30 seconds. A nice aroma comes out.

At this point, add onion, green chillies, minced ginger, red chilli powder and turmeric powder in it. Fry till onions turn golden.

Now add potato cubes. Mix well and fry for another 2 minues, followed by adding bread and salt in it. Mix nicely.

Keep stirring for another 3-4 minutes. Add coriander leaves and lemon juice in it. Fold well. Switch off the heat now.

Serve immediately as a breakfast palate or evening afterschool snack.

Tips: Wheat bread can be used for a healthier version
         Vegetables like green beans, peas or carrot may use in it.
         Potato can be skipped. May add tomato ketchup for making it more tasty.
