This is definitely a dear diary moment. Me putting up a recipe on my blog! There was left over bread at home from the breakfast I made for my sister yesterday (Baked beans and bread, I might as well show off completely while I’m at it, right). So, today’s evening tiffin was Bread Upma. No one in my family is a big fan of bread. So, my only memory of how this should taste is what I had at my Periamma’s house a couple of years ago. So Anoop, this is how I made it 🙂
3 slices of bread – tear it up into li’l pieces
2 tomatoes – finely chopped
1 onion – finely chopped
2 green chillies – finely chopped
Little ginger – peeled, chopped and slightly crushed
Mustard seeds and jeera for tempering
1/2 a tspn of Sambar powder
1/2 a tspn of Garam masala
Salt to taste
Heat about 1 tspn of Ghee with 1 tbspn of cooking oil and when it heats up, add mustard seeds and jeera. Follow it up with skined, crushed ginger (according to taste) and green chillies. After the mustard seeds crackle, add the onion, Garam masala powder and Sambar powder. It will be slightly dry at this stage. So add little water. When the raw smell disappears, add the tomatoes and saute. After a min, add the bread pieces and salt to taste. Mix thoroughly and leave on for a min or two.
I also added grated Cheese after turning off the gas and left it closed for a couple of minutes for the cheese to melt. How can anything with cheese not be yummy.
Unfortunately, we (my cousin and I) ate all of it up before I even thought of blogging it. So no picture 😦
Following up with the recent blade movies that’ve come out, I watched Silambattam. I don’t think its even worth writing a review for. Watch this video and you’ll probably understand what I’m talking about.
If there’s a Padmashree for dialog writers, it must go to the one who wrote dialogs for this movie (don’t know who it is).
Just because you’re white,
Not everything you say is right! wah wah wah
You want to brew beer
For me, my land and people are dear
I will fight you out without any fear
Am I clear
I have only one response, durai ingleesh indhi ellam pesudhu
pongada neengalum unga cinemavum!
