Bread Pulao, or Bread Upma is one dish that we’ve been eating as a lunch since years.. You must be remembering, there was either one or two days in a week(or alternate), when you got something special in the lunch box as a kid.. My mom still does that for me..
And what used to be in those special days? Something experimental, or our subtle and amusing Bread Pulao, Poha and so on.. Fond memories isn’t it?
Let’s make some Bread Pulao this time around for the Kids Lunch Box Series 🙂
Start by heating up a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Add the mustard seeds, after they splutter add the chopped green chili and onions.
Cook the onions, once they start getting golden add the chopped tomatoes, salt to taste and cook until it is mushy.
Add some chopped coriander leaves, red chili powder and ketchup mix and cook for a minute. Add a tsp of sugar and stir.. Then add the cubed bread slices. Mix it all well together, add some more coriander and serve or pack in lunch box! Enjoy!
Curry Leaves can be added in the tempering.
Just remember, loading the bread pulao with bhujia…. Total bliss! I want to enjoy again, so let me go.. That’s all for today!
This is so delicious and versatile.. Like you can have this just as a starter or any time snack, or with rice/roti.. Anytime in the day.. They usually prefer eating this with roasted poha(aloo ko achar ani chuda). Aloo ko achar is a little different thing. But i ate this with Chuda.. 🙂
I got a email for the recipe of this, so here it is!
