Bread chunks cooked in tomatoes, onions with few spices and other ingredients is bread upma. Bread snacks are pretty simple and quick to make and the best part is that the bread dishes make quick breakfast recipes or easy snacks recipes. When I have 2-3 days old bread specially, if it is crumbled or broken, I like to make bread upma. It can be served for breakfast or at tea time.
With some bread in my fridge, I am always at ease. Be it a quick breakfast recipe for kids’ tiffin or easy snack recipe for tea time, I know I can do it in no time. Bread rolls happen to be my favorite bread recipe for a snack. But when I am not in the mood to make this deep-fried snack I make bread upma. Here is all you need for it:
Bread: White bread or brown bread or multigrain bread, any bread works for this recipe. Brown bread is preferred over the regular bread these days. I make many bread recipes using brown bread. It works absolutely fine.
Onion and tomatoes: These form the base for the bread upma recipe.
Flavors: Ginger and chili, lemon juice and fresh coriander give flavor to this bread dish.
With two kids at home, I often resort to bread dishes for breakfast or evening snacks. And therefore there are plenty of easy recipes using bread on the blog; be is crispy bread rolls or an innovative recipe of bread puri, the very flavorful bread vada and many more.
