The stir-fried bread recipe is my all time favorite snack, this can be made in a few minutes and makes a perfect tea-time accompaniment. A hot cup of chai/coffee and a bowl of this stir-fried bread will make such a pleasant combo. With just a few bread slices and some easily available ingredients from your kitchen pantry, and in no time you can prepare this tasty Stir fried bread. I have made it a bit spicy to satisfy my taste buds, you can alter the spice levels according to your wish.


This recipe is a great way to use any kind of excess bread you have lying around in the house. The addition of onions, green chilies and fresh herbs like coriander leaves along with toasted buttered bread is super delicious.

16 bread slices
3 large tomatoes, chopped small
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 green chilies, finely chopped
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
¹/₂ teaspoon curry powder
Salt to taste
Butter/margarine and oil for cooking
1 small bunch of coriander leaves, finely chopped

To begin making the bread upma recipe, we will first toast the bread. You can toast it in your toaster or in a skillet. I personally prefer the toaster as it is quicker. If you don’t have a toaster, place the bread in a hot pan and toast it. Once the bread is toasted, apply the softened butter/margarine over the toasted bread. Next cut the bread into small dices and keep aside.

In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add the onions and green chilies. Sauté the onions on medium heat, until soft and tender. Once the onions are soft, add the tomatoes, curry powder, turmeric powder, and cumin powder. Stir and cook the tomatoes until they turn slightly soft as well.

Finally, add a little salt and the toasted buttered bread pieces. Stir well to combine all the ingredients and stir fry on medium to high heat for a couple of minutes. We stir fry just to make sure the bread pieces have got all the spices and salted well. Check salt levels. Remember the butter you used could have some salt as well.

Stir in the chopped coriander leaves into the bread upma to get the delicious fresh flavor. Serve the Bread Upma for breakfast or a tea time snack for friends and family. Enjoy!
