Bread Upma

I used the frozen left over bread to make bread upma. As I usually buy brown breads, the derived bread upma is healthy too. Some people make chunks of bread to make upma, I had pulsed them in mixer jar to get soft bread crumbs before using them in the recipe. It is good for a fast breakfast. Honestly, I am not a big fan this though Kundan likes it.
