Upma is a simple yet comforting dish originated from South India.  Now I want to make use of my leftover bread slice. The perfect way to clear those is making  this  Bread Upma.

For this recipe, the cubed bread is  fried along with various seasonings and vegetables are often added during the cooking process, according to your preference.

Since Bread Upma is fully spiced, you don't any gravy at all.  The flavor has a depth character and distinction. This quick meal is best served during breakfast or brunch.

Serves :  3-4

6-8 slices bread cut into small
1 big onion chopped
2 green/red chili sliced thinly
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seed
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 large tomato diced
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrot
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 tablespoon oil
salt to taste


Heat the oil, when heated add in  mustard seed. When they pop, add the cumin seed, onion and green chili.

When onion turns  translucent add the tomato, carrot and salt. Cook until tomato turns soft.

Now add the chili powder, turmeric and cilantro, stir well.

Mix in bread pieces and stir until bread is fully coated with spices.

Remove and serve. Garnish with cilanto.

Stir Fried Pasta Recipe @

Once a while we love to eat pasta especially a stir fried ones. We will devour any kind of  pasta  that is long and spicy. While we do have a typical pasta sometimes I mix things up with pasta from different countries. I make sure they have more fiber and other nutrients.

You can always use less chili paste for a  milder version.  Anyway, we like ours to be super spicy, in fact I had used bird's eye chili for this recipe.

This meal is delicious and ready in minutes.  Feel free to substitute any type of meat or vegetables to this dish or skip the meat altogether.
