Bread Upma

It’s one of my favorite breakfasts and snacks. I love bread, and this is a lovely dish. Not very spicy and with the mix of some tasty ingredients it does taste nice. You call it bread uppit, bread uppama, bread ka shira…it doesn’t matter. This is also my choice for lunch or dinner when am really bored and I want a change. And it surely works !!

So have a go at it and am sure you will (if not yet) become a fan of this yummy dish.
