Bread Upma

An easy peacy breakfast for you and the best way of utilising bread before they stale. I am a huge fan of bread. I have mentioned about it in my earlier posts. I am not saying about it all over again. The Indian store near our apartment have all the basic stuffs. It is a bliss that we get canned coconut milk and shredded coconut over there. Our traditional kerala snacks like achappom, murukku everything is available. But I have found that both bread and milk they provide will be almost close to expiry. During several trips of Indian grocery store this has happened and we have even told the manager about it and of no use. Here you will get milk in one big can and it will take us atleast one week to finish it. Both of us are not active coffee drinkers. The bread craving inside me compelled me to have a sandwich for dinner and not with a second thought I put the bread packet into my shopping cart. When I came home I made the sandwich and next day morning the bread packet is looking at me and saying "you can use me fast or else you can throw me away". Then I got down myself to make one of my favorite breakfast item.
