Bread poha is simple Indian breakfast that is made by cooking chunks of bread in spicy tomato masala. 10 Minutes is all that is required to make tasty and Easy Vegetarian Indian Breakfast.
Basically bread poha is one of those Indian breakfast recipes which I usually cook to recycle leftover 2-3 day’s old bread may be tomato or two and few vegetables like bell pepper/capsicum, cauliflower, peas, corn. That’s the reason I make this for a weekend breakfast, just before grocery shopping, so that I can use up whatever left in the fridge.
So other than chopped bread and tomato masala, ingredients for the bread poha recipe at my home are ever changing. I have used whole wheat bread in this recipe, but you can use whichever bread you have at home for this quick easy and tasty Indian breakfast.
Breakfast at our home usually is protein rich and I add some carb in the form of bread/flatbread. So I try and keep the smaller portion for the bread poha, and add either a glass of milk or a fried/boiled egg to keep us full and going until lunch time. I often serve the hot bowl of bread poha with curd.
This time it was paneer (which btw has some carbs too) but this time there was no egg. This small block of paneer was waiting to be used, so I added paneer instead of veggies and that made this Bread poha more delicious. and it was quite filling with a glass of masala chai. Also if you love green chilies like me You will love those fried green chilies with bread poha for a spicy punch. If you want to make bread poha recipe without onion you can just omit them and cook rest of the recipe as it is.
