Bread Uppma

This is a wonderful tasty bread uppma from my brother VPV. He lives in Chennai and requested me to include a separate section - 'bachelor cooking' in Paajaka. He wanted to contribute first and sent me the recipe and photographs of the delicious bread uppma that he prepared.


Bread - half loaf (cut into small pieces)

Oil for seasoning - 2 tablespoons

Garlic - 5 pods or Ginger garlic paste - half teaspoon (optional)

Mustard seeds - half teaspoon

Cumin seeds - half teaspoon

Garam masala - half teaspoon

Turmeric powder - quarter teaspoon

Red chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Salt as required


Heat oil in a wide heavy bottomed kadai.

Add the mustard seeds. When it pops, add the cumin seeds.

Reduce the heat and add the garam masala, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and the garlic or ginger garlic paste if using and finally salt.

Immediately add the cut bread pieces and toss until the color is spread evenly.

Turn off the heat and serve immediately. If serving later, microwave for few seconds just before serving. Serve with ketchup.

Thanks VPV for sending the recipe.
