Fridge clean-up!

So, here I am, left with a stack of bread (white bread) with no one in mood for any kind of sandwich. I hate wastage of any kind- especially food :( - I put on my thinking hat and whip up something really flavorful which just vanished within seconds. Check out!


Ingredients-

  • 6-7 bread slices
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers (red and yellow)
  • green peas (1/4 cup)
  • chopped corriander leaves
  • curry leaves (5-6 leaves-chopped)
  • 2 green chillies ( chopped)
  • one medium sized onion (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup grated coconut
  • groundnuts
  • salt (according to taste)
  • paprika powder- 1/2 tsp
  • turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  • garam masala/curry masala powder-1/2 tsp
  • cumin seeds

Preparation-
Cut the bread slices into small squares or shred them into tiny pieces and keep aside. In a wok, add butter or cooking oil and allow it to heat. Add the cumin seeds and wait for it to sputter. Saute onions, chillies, groundnuts, bell peppers and peas. Throw in the spices- paprika powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder/curry masala powder with salt. Stir fry for 3-4 minutes before adding the bread pieces. Add the grated coconut and curry leaves. Allow the bread pieces to take in the flavor and turn golden brown. I will leave the wok partially covered and put the gas on a low flame to ensure that the bread turns golden brown with the flavor. Of course, my signature to any dish is the chopped corriander leaves. Just finished eating and all I can say is BURP :)
