Bread Upma is an easy, yummy snack that can be made in a jiffy. Though this recipe does not appear in my kitchen often, when I have left over bread, the first thing that comes to my mind is bread upma. Rather than toasts or sandwich I prefer this as it is a typical Indian style dish. U can serve this as breakfast or snack.

Now to the recipe…



[Preparation Time-10 mins : Cooking Time- 20 mins]


  • Bread – 6 to 8 slices
  • Butter/Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Cumin/Jeera – 1 tsp
  • Onion – 2 
  • Tomato – 1
  • Green Chillies – 2
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Tomato Sauce – 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Chilli powder – 3/4 tsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Turmeric powder – a pinch
  • Coriander leaves – to garnish


  • Cut the bread slices into bite size squares. Chop onion & tomato and keep it ready. Heat a pan with butter/oil and temper with cumin seeds. Once it splutters add finely chopped onions and slit green chillies. Saute until transparent. Add ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell goes off.

  • Add the bread squares and mix well so that the masala coats every bread piece. Let it toast in medium flame for a few mins. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
