This month of kartik is a special month and generally cooking with onions and garlic is avoided, it is very difficult to explain this to other people but you can get a clue from chef kurma das a devout vaishnava. And with my mom who has come to visit me it becomes more special to treat her different varieties of food as she restricts her diet during this month without onions and garlic. This morning I prepared bread upma . It is very simple to prepare and can be made in a jiffy. It looks colorful too and I am sure you would love its taste.
- 7 slices bread ( I used 5 slices brown bread and 2 white)
- 1.5 cup chopped veggies (cauliflower, carrot, potato)
- 1/4 tsp jeera / cummin seeds
- 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 1/2 cup tomatoes
- 3 slit green chilies
- 1 tbsp chopped cilantro/coriander
- 2 tbsp oil
- salt to taste
Heat oil in the same pan, add cumin seeds, chilies then add the chopped veggies and fry till they become tender.
Then add tomatoes and cilantro/coriander and cook until it becomes soft.
