The perfect Indian brunch… Bread Poha prepared with bread and Indian masala.
After making this Rotini with Creamy Mushroom Sauce that you all seem to love (thank you very much), I figured it was time to take a turn to the far east and spice things up in the kitchen.
This highly aromatic recipe comes to you from Kiran who takes the most unbelievably beautiful & artistic photos that had me salivating, and I just had to resort to making this dish.
This recipe is:
Perfect for Brunch
- 2 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 2 green chilies, finely chopped
- 1 spring curry leaves / curry pata
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 small tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 tsp red chili powder
- 2 1/2 tsp coriander powder
- salt to taste
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 medium size white potatoes, microwaved, peeled, cubed
- 8 slice 100% whole wheat bread, 1 inch cubes
- 1/2 tsp garam masala
- Start by chopping the green chilies and onions. Set aside the curry leaves.</br></br>
- Heat a pot on medium heat, add oil, once hot, add the mustard seeds.</br></br>
- Once they splutter after a few seconds, add the turmeric powder. Stir.</br></br>
- Add the green chilies and curry leaves. Stir and allow this to cook for about 10 seconds.</br></br>
- Add the onions and season with salt. Stir. Let the onions cook for about 5 minutes or until they are slightly golden.</br></br>
- Chop the tomatoes.</br></br>
- Add the tomatoes to the onions.</br></br>
- Season with red chili powder, coriander powder, and salt. Stir.</br></br>
- Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low-medium heat (dial 4). Let the tomatoes cook down for about 10 minutes until you have a paste-like consistency.</br></br>
- In the meantime, microwave, peel, and cube the potatoes.</br></br>
- Also, cube the 8 slices of bread.</br></br>
- Check on the onion-tomato mixture, this is what you should have… masala mixture.</br></br>
- Add water.</br></br></br>
- Add the potatoes. Stir and let the potatoes cook for about 3 minutes.</br></br>
- This is what you should have.</br></br>
- Add the bread.</br></br>
- Toss well. Takes a bit of effort.</br></br>
- Add the garam masala and season with salt, if need be.</br></br>
- I made this super quick Cilantro Chutney to go with it, minus the coconut.</br></br>
- Serve immediately. Top with chutney, and squirt some lemon if you’d like. Heaven!</br></br>
