Mix-Veg Bread Upma (Famous Indian Breakfast made with Bread and Vegetables)

It was a lazy Sunday morning when we all woke up late as we had a late night marriage function to attend on Saturday. We were not hungry though as we always used to in the morning specially on Sundays. But had to have something which is easy to cook and easy to digest too. So decided to made some Bread Upma. I love vegetables in any of my meal so added some seasonal vegetables like carrot, beans and peas along with onion. You may prepare it without adding any vegetables too. We normally prefer brown bread over regular white bread, so select bread as per your choice. And you are ready to serve a easy breakfast in minutes. Here goes the recipe…
