Today my post is that of a very Easy peasy Bread Upma,that can be whipped up in no time.Its a delicious comfort dish that can be prepared with left over bread or even Stale Bread.The bread is cut into tiny cubes,tossed about in oil with a few spices and along with a delicious tangy twist using Fresh lime juice.Its super delicious Mind You!!
From my childhood,I have always been
afraid terrified of the feeling of being hungry incase I wake up in the middle of the night.I know you might feel like laughing hearing this…But I dont know why its like that for me.That fear grew up with me and it stays with me even now 🙂 .In my childhood,I always kept a Cheese sandwich or a PBJ Sandwich on the table next to my bed.And my brother used to laugh at me.Back at my College/work hostel,my friends used to tease me when I kept a packet of cookies near my bed for the night 🙂 .Now my hubby teases me when he sees me get up in the middle of the night and head off to the kitchen.But when I make Bread Upma,I get the chance to tease him back because as soon as the aroma of the delicious Bread Upma fills the air,I see my hubby slowly tip toeing to the kitchen (I always make sure I leave a bowl of Bread Upma specially for him 😉 )
Incase you find the upma to be too dry(ofcourse depending upon how old the Bread is),just sprinkle some water and toss it about,it gets soft then.So try out this upma as a delcious midnight snack or as a breakfast dish or for brunch or even as a n evening snack!And Enjoy!
