Bread upma recipe, Vegetable Bread upma recipe, i learnt from my mom who is an expert in making this dish. This bread upma 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. My kids are a big fan of bread upma too. Recently they tasted my Mom’s handmade bread upma and they loved too.

Meenal Ramanathan November 22, 2012 - 9:31 am

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?

Reply
admin November 22, 2012 - 2:32 pm

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

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 …
