Chop the bread slices in cubes keep aside.
Heat 2tbsp oil in a pan. add 1 tsp mustard seeds and let them crackle and pop.
Then add 1/2 tsp cumin seeds. stir and saute till the cumin seeds also crackle and change their color.
Add 1/3 cup chopped onion stir. on a low to medium flame, saute the onions till they turn translucent.

Then add 1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes.
Then add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 1/4 tsp red chili powder and pinch of asafoetida for a more spicy taste in bread upma you can increase the red chili powder to 1/2 tsp.
Mix very well add salt.
Stir and saute this onion tomato spices mixture till the tomatoes soften and you see oil releasing from the sides. the tomatoes have to be cooked well otherwise you feel rawness in them.
There should also be no liquids or moisture in the mixture and it should be slightly dry. otherwise, the bread cubes become soggy.
Add the bread cubes, mix the bread well with the rest of mixture.
On a low to medium flame, saute the bread cubes for 4 to5 minutes till they become slightly crisp from the edges.
This way there is some crispness in bread cubes on the edges, along with a soft texture in the center of the cubes.
Then add 1tbsp chopped coriander leaves.
Instead of adding coriander leaves at this step, you can also garnish with them, while serving the bread upma.
Mix and serve bread upma hot as a breakfast or as a quick snack.
