BREAD UPMA | BREAD UPMA RECIPE

   The recipe for bread upma i learnt from my mom who is an expert in making this dish and it has an interesting background too in our family. When my dad came to meet my mom for the first time, my mom made this bread upma as it is considered in those days, as an innovative and rich dish to serve for guests. My mom learnt this from her father( my grandfather) who is a good cook and this time i wanted to share this recipe with you.

    3. bread upma turned out well.
      i toasted and cut them into pieces
      but the bread in upma was so soft.
      i wanted a crispy bread in upma
      what should i do?

      Delete
    4. If u deep fry the bread this will be more crispy. But since we are mixing with the masala this will become soft soon. Else make the masala and just toast the bread just before serving and mix immediately before serving

  35. nice recipe as it is- tried a few changes the second time for a slightly healthier version - used olive oil, almonds and soy instead of vegetable oil, cashews and potatoes.. turned out pretty good- topped it with shredded cheese for a nice fusion touch ...
