Dunno wat about u all, but my pantry is always filled with breads and buns, coz everyone at home like to have a simple bread toast served either with jam or nutella or simply with butter along with hot coffee or chocolate..Before we used to buy white breads and have them usually for breakfast, since i started enjoying healthy and fibre rich foods, i changed even my white bread slices to whole wheat bread slices, my teddies like bread as upma and i do prepare often in stove top, for the first time i wanted give a try in microwave oven...Yesterday, i prepared this simple bread upma with some leftover wheat breads in microwave oven coz it was too hot here and its completely a hard task for me to cook something especially for our dinner, so i prepared this simple bread upma for our sterday's dinner in less than 30minutes through microwaven oven and we enjoyed along with ketchup also with a simple tomato salad..
