Bread Upma

Simple upma to use up all left over bread and  can be made in a jiffy. For me this is a quick snack,but you can serve it as breakfast.You can add any chopped vegetables to make it colorful and healthy. I had some left over minced stir fried chicken so I added that too.So it is that simple,all leftovers tossed together to make a quick delicious snack/brunch.

Ingredients
Bread- 8 slices
Onion- 1 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
Cashew nuts- 6-8
Tomato sauce- 11/2 tsp
Vegetables of your choice- 1/2 cup
(here I used green peas, crumbled potatoes
and left over mined chicken)
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Chilly powder- 1/3 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/3 tsp
Chopped coriander- a little
Lemon juice- a few drops
salt to taste


Cut bread into small cubes. Grease a fry pan with little ghee and slightly toast it till golden brown and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and roast cashew nuts. Add chopped onions and saute till golden brown and then ginger garlic and saute till raw flavor disappears. Next add cooked vegetables,chilly powder,turmeric powder and garam masala and tomato sauce. Mix well and add the bread and toss. Sprinkle salt,chopped coriander and lemon juice and serve.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.

Pepper Prawns Fry

Pepper Prawns Fry
Deep fried spicy and salty prawns is irresistible and one of my favorite ways to eat prawns. This crispy fry will be a perfect treat for your family. Pepper Prawns fry is crispy fried prawns with exciting flavors of garlic,butter,zesty lemon and kick of pepper.It is my take to butter garlic shrimp,but a little spicy.This recipe is so versatile and easy to prepare.

If you get fresh prawns try frying it head on, it has an irresistible delicate crispness to it, juicy and equally tasty.Thanks to hubby who convinced me that the head is the most flavorful part of prawns...so true.If you are not a fan of the head,no worries, it is still tasty and irresistible.
