Bread Upma | Upma Recipes

When we met my friend last month in a get-together, he asked if my blog is focused on women or people who are experts in cooking. I said "No, it is for everyone". He then suggested me to post some recipes which are easy so that bachelors or newbies can try. So I decided to tag/label my easy-to-cook recipes as "Quickies/Bachelor(ette) cooking" per his request and here it goes.
Bread upma is my favorite snack and perfect for a light yet filling breakfast/dinner. 
Ingredients:
Bread - 8-10 slices (I used wholegrain bread)
Onion - chopped - 1 cup
Dried red chilli - 2 - broken
Sambar powder - 1/2 tsp or Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp + Corainder powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Chana dhal - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Coriander leaves/Cilantro - To garnish
Method:
Cut the bread slices to 1" pieces. Heat oil in a wide pan and add the mustard seeds and chana dhal. When the mustard seed splutters add the dried red chilli and onions. Fry until the onions turn transparent, add the sambar powder, turmeric powder and salt. Saute for 2 mins and pop in the bread pieces. Turn the heat to low and mix gently until the onion is well coated on the bread pieces. Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
