Bread Poha

bread poha

Bread poha is an easy breakfast or snack item. In the recipe below, I have used as many vegetables as I can and brown bread to make it healthier. A little variation of bread poha is bread upma. Bread poha is a healthy, tasty dish which is liked by kids and grown ups alike.
Recipe of bread poha
7-8 slices of bread
1 onion- chopped
1 tomato- chopped
Chopped vegetables like capsicum, carrot, potato, cauliflower and peas
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp oil
bread cubes

1. Cut bread slices into small cubes. Dry toast them in a kadhai or a pan. Take out and keep aside.
2. In the same kadhai, after wiping away the bread crumbs sticking to it, heat oil. Add cumin seeds. When they change color, add onion and sauté till light pink.
3. Add vegetables and stir fry them for 1 minute. Add salt, turmeric and red chilli powders and mix.
4. Add slightly more than 1/2 cup of water and cook covered till vegetables get tender and all the water is absorbed.
5. Add chopped tomato and tomato ketchup and mix. Cook covered till tomato turns soft. Uncover and burn the excess moisture if any.
6. Add bread cubes and mix thoroughly. Turn off the heat. Serve bread poha hot.
