Microwave Wheat Bread Upma

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..

MW Bread Upma

6nos Whole wheat bread slices (cubed)
1no Onion (big & chopped finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger (minced)
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
1/2tsp Channadal
3nos Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Curry leaves
Oil
Salt

Heat enough oil in a microwave safe bowl for 2 minutes in high, add the mustard seeds, urad dal, channa dal, dry red chillies, asafoetida powder to the oil and cook again in microwave oven for 5minutes in high until the dals turns golden brown..now add the chopped onions, minced ginger, slit opened green chillies, curry leaves and cook everything again in high for 10 minutes (stir in between)along with turmeric powder and salt...finally add the cubed bread chunks, toss everything gently until they get well mixed with the spices, cook everything again for 10minutes in high (stir in between)..

Serve with ketchup or spicy chutneys..

Nice to see your upma. I always like to know how people serve their dishes. Usually this is a solo breakfast or snack kind of item. So it was very nice to hear that you made this for dinner with salad and ketchup. :) Cheers!
