Your masala bread upma is ready to be served!

Masala Bread UpmaMy Notes:

  • You can even add a tsp of ginger garlic paste while sauting onions.
  • Also if you dont prefer the masala flavour just ignore the spices and go ahead like the normal upma.In that case you can skip garam masala and add sambar powder.
  • Adding tomato sauce gives a nice tangy taste so I prefer adding it.
  • If you dont like the chunky tomato pieces, you can also puree the tomatoes and add it.

  28. if you it a little crispy, u can fry the cut bread pieces in a spoon of ghee initially. This will not let the bread become very soft due to the sauce in the mixing later. Just a suggestion
