Weekend Lunch Series: Vaghareli Bread


What do you do when you have a lot of leftover bread from the pau-bhaji you made the night before?? You turn it into a delicious lunch, that's what!

An easy, quick lunch that is sure to please, here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

Half loaf of stale bread-torn into pieces,
1 small- jalapeño- chopped
1 medium onion- chopped
2 tbsp: milk

For the tempering:
1/4 tsp: mustard seeds
1/4 tsp: chili powder (optional)
1/4 tsp: turmeric powder
1 tbsp: Oil, Salt, Sugar to taste, chopped cilantro and lime juice (optional).

In a deep frying pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds and the onions, and jalapeño. Stir well. Add the torn bread pieces and stir until lightly browned. Sprinkle some milk on top and add the seasonings. Stir well and garnish with chopped cilantro and lime juice. Serve hot with some tea and enjoy!

Cheers~ trupti

Suganya said...

Wow Trupti. You are back from yr hiatus. Glad to have you back.
I soak the bread in little bit of sour yogurt of they are too stale. That way the bread also tastes a li'l tangy!

Trupti, I am drooling, also I like suganya idea of soaking in yogurt.

Trupti! you are missed dearly. Honestly, just yesterday I was wondering what's happening with you. I thought that maybe since you have your gig at Food Network Canada, you don't have time to blog, which would be understandable.

So very ver nice to see you.

Hi,

A while ago, you posted on my blog in response to a post I made about trying to get my book published. Well, I am pleased to announce that I am currently in the process of publishing!

Since you expressed and interest, I thought I'd just pop in to ask you to watch my blog for updates on how it's all going. I'll tell you when it's on sale and everything! I'm really excited, and I hope that if you think it's worth it, you will help spread the word about my book!

Thank you for your time!

Vaghreli bread (phodnicha bread) is a regular weekend treat for us...tastes especially good if made using sourdough bread.
