Bread Upma - Morning Mood Booster

If you are bored with morning routine of  'Bread and Butter', you should definitely try this to spice up your breakfast.  This colorful, spicy and savory item can be a booster breakfast or a 'rev up' evening snack. Whenever you have it, it leaves a flavorful taste in your mouth for a while. This is a quick snack fix for the busy bees out there (Oh Yeah! People like me :-) ).

Multi Grain Bread Slices  - 2
Chopped Onions - 1/4 cup
Chopped Tomato - 1/3 cup
Chopped Chillies - 1 tea spoon
Cumin Seeds - 1 tea spoon
Chopped Green Onions - 2 table spoons
Tomato Sauce (Ketchup) - 1 table spoon
Soy Sauce - 1 tea spoon
Fresh Lime Juice - 4 to 5 drops
Canola Oil / Vegetable Oil - 2 Tea spoons

1. Put Your non-stick pan on the stove and lit the flame
2. Add oil to the Pan and add cumin seeds and let them splutter ( 1 min)
3. Add Chopped Chillies, Onions and saute them  for 2 min and add the soy sauce
4. Add Chopped Tomatoes for the mixture in the pan.  let it cook for 1 min, not more than that. Otherwise the Tomatoes becomes watery and makes your snack wet.
5. Add ketch up (or Maggie Tomato Sauce) to the mixture.
6. Chop the Bread Slices in equal square pieces. (I prefer to leave the edges/crust on, so that it adds little crunchiness to the dish, if you want it softer and don't like the crust and remove the edges and cut them into squares). Add the sliced bread pieces to the mixture in the pan
7.  Mix it well and gently with out breaking the bread pieces and not mushing them.
8. Sprinkle the Lime Juice and Garnish with Chopped Green Onions / Cilantro.
9. That's it. Yum! Yum! Yum! Your Morning Booster is ready to wake you up from your sleep fully.

Serving Tip:   Serve this as a spicy breakfast followed by a Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice or Serve this as a 'rev up' evening snack followed by a strong coffee or masala chai.

I have altered this recipe by adding soy sauce and green onions which gives it Manchurian looks and adds Chinese flavor to it. I have used 15 Grain Bread which makes this little crunchy (than soft and soggy) and does good to your heart too.

Hint: If you have noticed I haven't used any salt in this recipe because there is enough sodium in the soy sauce and ketch up. If you want to add salt you can add it after step 5. But I don't want you to, Salt is the primary culprit for all the health issues. It is up to you, if you still want to use it.
