the recipe is very good,but i think so it will be better if you prepare without water,because bread wiil become sticky,otherwise the recipe is very good and do waiting for more recipes from you.


I tried this recipe, but without water. It tastes good without water. Alternatively you need not remove the crust of the bread, kind of fried bread upma.


Pinky, I tried this and was very very bad. I think unlike other upma`s we don`t need to add water for Bread Upma as it will become sticky. So my suggestion is try with out water, after cooking the vegetables add the bread crumbs and add two three spoons of ghee and fry. I may taste better than this. Meera

It is egg-jhactly excel-lent.


Sorry Pinky, I went exactly by the recipe but couldn`t get any disastrous than this. First the quantity can meet only two and a child. Second, it came out so sticky and messy. What do you think could have been the reason? Maybe I will try outher recipes you might have posted.


easy to make great to taste

This upma when made with bread pieces would need lots of oil/ ghee. In case u want to use least oil, you can grind the bread slices to crumbs which would resemble rava (sooji). its easy to mis with the seasoning and doesnt take in much oil.


want a variety with upmas try this one!!
