Bread Upma with Hamburger Buns

I made this upma last Sunday for breakfast. I had many leftover hamburger buns in the refrigerator. We usually make sandwiches/veggie burgers with those buns. As I was bored of eating them the same way again and again, thought of making bread upma with these buns. I make bread upma mostly with regular bread slices. Making bread upma with these buns is a nice variation and it tasted so delicious too!!

Ingredients:(For two persons)

  • 4 Hamburger Buns
  • A small Onion, chopped fine or lengthwise
  • 1 Tomato, chopped
  • 2-3 Green Chilies, cut into small pieces
  • A small piece of Ginger, peeled and chopped
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • 1/4 cup Green Peas (Frozen/Fresh)
  • ¼ cup Corn Kernels (I used Frozen)
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup Water
  • Salt

For Seasoning/Tempering:

  • 2 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Bengal Gram (Chana Dal)
  • ½ tsp Black Gram (Urad Dal)
  • Few Cashews, broken into halves
  • Few Curry Leaves


Tear the buns into small pieces by hand and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds + chana dal + urad dal + cashews and fry till they turn golden brown in color.

Then add curry leaves and then onions + green chilies + tomato + ginger + green peas + corn and mix well. Sauté them well. Add turmeric and mix well.

Pour a cup of water and cover. When all the water gets absorbed and the veggies are cooked well, add the bread pieces and mix well.

Cover and leave the pan on a low flame for some time until the bread pieces absorb the essence of the cooked veggies.

Remove the cover, add salt, sprinkle lemon juice and mix well.

Turn off the flame and transfer the contents to a serving plate. Enjoy this delicious bread upma when it still hot. Yummy!!
