bread upma and other leftover bread dishes.
I now have a slightly altered and a fanciful recipe for a spicy bread 65 using very simple ingredients.
Here goes the recipe:
Any white bread-about 10 slices cubed
Onion-1 medium thinly cut into strips
Tomatoes-3 chopped finely or 2 tbsp of any tomato paste
Green chillies-2 slit lenghtwise
Mustard seeds-1 tsp
Cumin/Jeera seeds-1 tbsp
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Cilantro- to garnish
Asafoetida pwdr-a pinch
Red chilly pwdr-1 tsp
Turmeric pwdr-1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
1.Cube the bread slices with or without the crust on.
2.Heat abt 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet and add the cumin seeds,green chillies,curry leaves and turmeric.
3.Add the cut onions next and fry until they turn transparent.
4.Now add the tomatoes or the paste or a combination of both and add the salt and chilly powder.
5.Cook for 5 mins till the mixture becomes thick and then slowly add the cubed bread slices.
6.Toss it slowly till the bread cubes are evenly coated with the tomato onion paste and add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil.
7.Fry till the bread cubes turn red and crisp.
8.Squeeze a few drops of lemon if preferred and garnish with chopped cilantro.
9.Serve hot with ketchup.
10.Yummy snack to enjoy on a monsoon evening..
Note:2 tbsp of thick curd can also be added towards the end for a tangy flavour..
