Here is a Bread Upma recipe with a South Indian touch.
Recipe source -  Homely Food
The only little change I made is adding a little Sambar powder instead of Coriander powder and the original recipe has no ginger garlic.

Bread slices ... 5-6 ( you can even make use of the edges of the bread that we trim away while making sandwiches)
Onion ..... 1 (chopped finely)
Tomato ... 1
Ginger ... 1 tsp .. (grated)
Garlic .... 1 tsp
Green chillies ... 1-2 ( as you like it )
Curry leaves .... a sprig
Coriander leaves .. handful
Mustard seeds ..... 1 tsp
Cumin seeds ........ 1 tsp
Asafoetida .......... a pinch
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Sambar powder ... 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder .... 1/4 tsp (add more if you like it spicy)
Salt ............. to taste
Oil ............. 2-3  tbsps


1. Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard and cumin seeds and a pinch of asafoetida.

2. Now put the chopped onions and ginger garlic and green chillies. Saute a little.

3.Now add the tomato pieces, coriander and curry leaves and simmer until the tomato cooks.

4. Add the salt, spice powders and little water.

5. Put the bread pieces and mix. Simmer to cook.

6. It just takes a couple of minutes. Serve immediately.
