    Hi,

    Whenever I buy bread part of it goes waste. Even after making bread upma, sitll some bread remains.

    Any ideas on utilizing leftover bread?

    Thanks in advance

    I make the following with bread:

    1. Normal bread toast
    2. Bombay toast - mix milk,egg and sugar.dip and toast
    3. Bread upma
    4. fry and use it in briyani's or pulaos
    5. grill/dry roast ..powder them coarsely and use these crumbs while deep frying chicken or while making cutlets
    6. when time permits i tend to make bread halwa(check chitvish recipe section)

    Don't hit me after rereading the recipe..very simple and basic one :hide:

    For 5-6 slices of bread:-

    Chop onions finely(1 medium sized)
    Mince tomatoes (2 small or 1 big)

    Heat oil
    Splutter mustard,urad dhal and curry leaves
    Saute onions
    Next tomatoes
    To this add little chilli powder,turmeric powder,salt and let them blend.
    dip each slice of bread individually in water and squeeze out immediately.
    Crumble them as we do for idli upma.
    Now add the crumbled bread pieces, stir till they blend..saute in low flame for a minute and serve.

    (We dip in water and crumble them to give a moisture effect and help it blend easily with the base masala.We can do it by crumbling directly too but it involves more oil as they have to blend)

    Make cutlet with the leftover bread!
    Use the veggies you have boil them and add , tumeric, chilli powder, salt, garam masala and roll them with the bread now in crumbs and a lil cornflour to hold them together, make patties or cutlet

    Thank you for all the replies.
    I am delighted to see the recipes of bread dosa and bread cutlet. I have a question though: How to make cutlet after dipping the vegetables in the powdered bread/corn flour. Is it to be deep fried or in toasted in Oven?

    Hi,
    You can deep fry the cutlets. dip the cutlets for a second in cournflour 9it should be very quick)and water mixture and then roll it in the bead crumbs powder. wrapping it well with bread crumbs will hold the mixture and then fry them. It is really very tasty.

    Saute the veggies you want in lil oil to make a dry sabji, make sure the veggies are cut into fine peieces. After the sabji is ready coat it with bread and either besan or cornflour, not too much of either because the actual taste is lost ! Make into the shapes you want before you fry them in oil! You can even make them as patties if you want to avoid deep frying!!! Seal the patties in a burger bun! Another avataar of good old bread.
