Inspiration for Bread Medley

Life is full of memories and my recipes are a reflection of it. Taking inspiration from smallest incidents is what makes your food amazing. Simplest of recipes become finger-licking delicacies because you put something more than the seasoning – you prepare the dishes infusing your feelings. Many of you may have noticed that when your mood is good while you are cooking, your food turns out great. Whereas when cooking in a foul mood, you would do everything right but still the food you prepare would not taste as good.

Bread medley is one such recipe that I took out of my memory bank. I remember my mother making this breakfast when we were kids. This would be her response whenever we demanded something different for breakfast in place of plain toast or bread with jam.

About Bread Medley

The simplicity of this breakfast recipe allows for some variations. Some people like to make this dish with spicy masala, while others prefer without it. For this variation, I have chosen to make this medley without spicy masala.

This dish is also known by a few other names in India – Bread Bhaji and Bread Upma being a few of them.

Enjoy this amazingly simple breakfast with hot tea or coffee and let me know if this was your tummy-to-heart moment.
