Bread Upma

Bread Upma is a new way to eat your bread. This upma is a simple snack or breakfast with South Indian touch. If you’re tired of eating toast and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, try this vegetarian (vegan) breakfast with bread.I like to try with wheat bread.If you/your kids don’t like wheat bread we can just use white bread.
