The Saffola Italian Oats Bread Upma Recipe is a dish that you look forward to whenever we have excess bread lying around the refrigerator. The addition of onions, green chilies, and fresh herbs like coriander leaves along with toasted buttered bread and the Italian oats makes it a quick and easy tea-time snack.
To begin making the bread upma recipe, we will first toast the bread. You can toast it in your toaster or on a skillet. I personally prefer the toaster, as it is quicker and crispier
Once the bread is toasted, you can optionally apply the softened butter over the toasted bread and cut the bread into small dices and keep aside
In a large wok or a kadai, heat a teaspoon of oil, add the onions, carrots, and green chilies and sauté the onions and carrots on medium heat, until soft and tender
Once the onions and carrots are soft, add in the tomatoes and oats; drizzle 1/4 cup of water and stir and cook the tomatoes and oats until they turn slightly soft and the oats are cooked through and most of the water is evaporated
Finally, add in a little salt and the toasted bread pieces. Stir well to combine all the ingredients and stir-fry on medium to high heat for a couple of minutes
Stir fry just to make sure the bread pieces have got all the spices and salted well. Check salt levels. Remember if you added the butter, then take care of the salt you add later.
Finally, stir in the chopped coriander leaves into the Oats Bread upma and serve it for breakfast or a tea time snack for friends and family
