Bread Upuma

Breakfast is very important meal and for me I love it to be a savory one vs. a sweet one.. I can enjoy Bread and jam, but would prefer other recipes with breads that are savory.. This bread upuma is a quick and easy breakfast or tiffin item. It is pieces of bread mixed with masala and spices and tastes delicious..The recipe will serve 2. The total time taken for this recipe is under 15 minutes. For this Vegan Thursday, I chose this very versatile bread upuma.
