i had actually bought these sandwich breads so that i can prepare veg sandwich or bombay sandwich. however, for some reason, i was occupied with other recipes and i forgot to cook those. meanwhile, the bread slices were about to expire and i had to finish them quickly. i was running out of recipes, and i asked my husband who suggested me bread masala. but i had already shared this recipe, hence i wanted something new. fortunately i got this idea to prepare bread upma for my breakfast as a bachelors recipe and somehow i managed to finish it.

while the preparation is extremely simple, some important steps for a perfect bread upma recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend to toast the bread first and then fry them with spices and veggies. otherwise, the bread slices may turn soggy and spongy. secondly, the recipe can be improvised further by adding veggies like green peas, beans and even broccoli. lastly, as an alternative, add maggie hot and sweet tomato sauce instead of tomatoes to make it more spicy and sweet bread upma.

finally, i would like to highlight my other snacks recipes collection with this post. this includes, spring dosa, aloo chat, chilli cheese toast, veg frankie, khandvi, hara bhara kabab, rava dhokla, paneer kathi roll and onion samosa recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection like,

  1. That’s great dish. i have not tried yet. i don’t have toaster. if i roast it on tava the bread gets softer due to residual oil in it. so what to do.
    i check for new impressive recipe every day in this site. Do you mind if i ask you to put ade dosa recipe. Please confirm if fermentation is required or we can go straight. i hear both. but i am not sure which is correct.

    regards
