Bread Poha

Monday, June 23, 2008

Its one of those early winter mornings & you are all cuddled up in your favourite blanket, Just then you wake up all of a sudden, only to realise that you have slept past your usual time. You just have half an hour to get your kid ready to school or you need to rush to that morning meeting. Then, that half an hour gets real crucial. What would you whip up in very little time, that is easy yet delicious.

I have for you today, Bread Poha which can be made in a jiffy & is very nutritious. I got hooked to Bread Poha during my MBA days. A Dhaba close to my college made the tastiest Bread Poha.

Here's my attempt to recreate the JhatPhat Recipe.

Preparation Time: 15 mins


  • 3-4 slices of bread ( brown/white ) - cut into medium sized squares

  • 1 red onion - finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli - chopped

  • A pinch of turmeric

  • Salt as per taste

  • Mustard Seeds

  • Oil


  1. Heat Oil in a wok, Add mustard seeds

  2. Once it splutters, Add green chillies & a pinch of turmeric

  3. Add onions & Saute till transparent.

  4. Add bread pieces & add salt as per taste. Saute until the bread pieces turn a little crisp.

  5. Mix well & Serve HOT ..

Enjoy with a cuppa HOT Tea/Coffee. Enjoi !!!

It is a good option for your kid's lunchbox as well.


  • If your are a health freak, use brown bread & olive oil
  • Spice up your Bread Poha by adding some finely chopped bell peppers & grated carrots.

I love it when the bread is slightly crisp. Goes well with the sweet taste of sauteed onions. I do not like to add too many ingredients to this. I keep it simple with the basic seasoning & let the flavor of the bread come up.
