If you are really bored of eating the routine bread toast and sandwiches, then this Bread Upma is an excellent and amazing appetizing dish influenced from the south Indian dish namely Upma. A very simple, healthy and delectable dish with excellent flavours mixed together to make the pieces of bread flavourful and yummy to eat. This is a very delicious breakfast that can be made in a jiffy with fresh or leftover bread slices.

Bread Upma is exceptionally made with pieces of bread sautéed in a mix of seasonings consisting of mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, urad dal, flavoured with crushed ginger, spiced with green chillies and a dash of lemon juice to give a wonderful zest and tang to this simple but delectable dish. This is a simple, healthy and a light snack with fantastic south Indian touch. You could also make it healthier and nutritious to kids by adding small cubes of potatoes, carrots and green peas or any other vegetables of your choice. This dish is a brilliant substitute which can also be given to people who hate eating the regular semolina or rava upma.

Upma  is a very common yet delicious South Indian and Sri Lankan Tamil breakfast dish cooked usually with semolina (Bombay rava) and various seasonings added into and sometimes also added with vegetables depending on individual choice. Upma is known by various names in southern India such as uppuma, uppittu etc. There are a variety of variations that can be made for making the Upma. Upma can be made with vermicelli, durum wheat, semolina or pearl sago. Generally a wide range of vegetable is added into along with either cashew nuts or ground nuts that give a nice crunchiness to the dish.

Some of the popular Upma made with different variations in different regions of India are:

Sabadana Upma Poha Upma Vegetable Semiya Upma Rice Flour Dry Upma Uppudu Pindi Poha Upma Idli Upma Borugula Upma (Puffed Rice Upma) And many more that can be created. Bread  is one ingredient commonly served in most homes for finishing a quickie breakfast. Fresh bread is prized for its taste, aroma, quality, appearance and texture. Retaining its freshness is important to keep it appetizing. Bread that has stiffened or dried past its prime is said to be stale. But there are few dishes that taste exceptionally tasty when you use bread that is old by a day or two. Bread is the staple food in the United States and is prepared by cooking dough of flour and water and often adding additional ingredients. Dough’s are usually baked but in some cuisines wherein breads are even steamed, fried or baked on an un-oiled skillet.

It may be leavened or unleavened. Salt, fat and leavening agents such as yeast and baking soda are common ingredients, though bread may contain other ingredients, such as milk, egg, sugar, spice, fruit (such as raisins), vegetables (such as onion), nuts (such as walnuts) or seeds (such as poppy). Sometimes, the word bread also refers to a sweetened loaf cake, often containing appealing ingredients like dried fruit, chocolate chips, nuts or spices, e.g. pumpkin bread, banana bread or gingerbread.
