Hello! Today I would show you one very simple easy to cook dish. It’s a breakfast item and it cooks in jiffy.
3-4 bread slices ( you can use old ones if it has not gone bad or you can use fresh ones too)
1 onion finely chopped
2 tomatoes finely chopped
¼ tsp mustard seeds
Few leaves of curry patta
1 green chilli cut in small pieces
Salt to taste
¼ tsp turmeric powder
¼ tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp red chilli powder
For garnishing some cut coriander leaves
In a pan put oil, let it heat then add mustard seeds and curry patta and green chilli. Stir for a min till mustard seeds splutter. Put chopped onion pieces and let them turn bit pink. Then put cut tomato pieces and stir again for a min. Next put 1cup of water, stir and add salt and other spices. Let it cook for few minutes till tomatoes soften. While its still watery break bread pieces by hand and put in the pan. Stir it and bread would take up all the water making it soft. Stir some more till it comes to required thick consistency.
Switch off gas and put bread upma in plate. Put coriander leaves to garnish and serve hot.
Optional: you can add ginger garlic paste with onion and add some more vegetables if you prefer.
I have kept it mild but you can increase the chilli if you want it more hot. This above recipe serves one. Increase quantities if you want to make more.
There is a dry upma method too and in that no tomatoes or water is used but its too dry so I prefer the one with gravy.
