Bread Upkari Recipe - Breada Upkari Recipe - Bread Upma - WINNER of the EASIEST recipe

This Bread Upkari recipe is the hands down winner in being the easiest and quite tasty snack to boot. This must be a Konkani invention as I have not seen any of my other friends from other cultures being aware of this.

Apart from being so quick and easy to make, it is quite tasty. In my view this dish shows what a good seasoning/tadka/pann can do to your dishes. Also, the bread in the dish just soaks up the flavor and adds value to this dish.

  • 1 tsp - urad dal- for seasoning
