Bread Poha

I made bread poha today morning for breakfast. Its a quick and easy snack. Everyone in our family likes it. plus feel its a nice change from regular poha or eating bread toast.


Ingredients:

  1. 6-7 Bread slices (white or brown)
  2. 2 tomatoes
  3. 1 big onion (or take 2 small ones)
  4. Salt
  5. Garam masala
  6. Red chilli powder
  7. Coriander powder
  8. Kadhi Patta
  9. Rye/Mustard seeds
  10. Fresh Coriander
  11. 1 tbsp oil
  12. 1/4 cup milk (optional)
Steps:
  1. Dice onions and tomatoes finely and keep them separate.
  2. Dice bread slices into small squares. You can decide the size as per your liking. I usually dice them into very small squares.
  3. Wash and clean the kadhi patta and either use it whole or dice it thin. (I dice it thin because my son doesn't like whole leaves coming into his mouth)
  4. In a kadhai/wok, put the 1 tbsp oil.
  5. When oil has become hot, add the rye seeds and let them splutter.
  6. Add diced kadhi patta and onions. Saute them till translucent.
  7. Add coriander powder, garam masala and red chilli powder.
  8. Add tomatoes and salt. Saute it for a minute.
  9. Add bread slices and diced fresh coriander. Mix well on low to medium flame.
  10. Add the milk and mix.
Variations:
  1. You can add vegetables in it as well. Use grated carrot, diced capsicum, green peas and saute them with onion before adding the diced tomatoes.
  2. You can add fried peanuts or cashews.
  3. I sometimes grate cheese over the serving and microwave it so that cheese kind of melts up. Betu likes it that way a lot.
