Bread Poha

Sunday morning, I wake up late and open my refrigerator to search for some thing for a quick painless breakfast. What stares at me from inside the refrigerator are two or three packets of bread left over from last week. The slices were not as soft as when they were fresh and hence I had bought new bread instead of finishing the left overs. Then, I remembered my mom’s receipe of making “Bread Poha”.

Bread Poha can be made without much efforts, and makes for a quick, tasty snack, which is very healthy and perfect for a morning breakfast. The more ingredients you can get together from the following list, the better your efforts will taste :)


(for 2 people)


  1. Begin by cutting your bread slices into small cubes
  2. Shred the onion and cut the potato into small cubes
  3. If the peas are frozen, put them into water to let them thaw and absorb some water for 5 minutes
  4. Take a bit(just enough to slightly fry the onions) of vegetable oil in a non-stick pan
  5. Put two pinch of rai seeds in it and wait for them to start popping
  6. Put the onions now and stir it till the onion becomes pink
  7. Put in the potato cubes now
  8. Add salt to taste, and a pinch of turmeric powder for a nice color. By the way, even though turmeric powder does not have any strong taste, but it is one of nature’s superb all round healer. So a pinch of it daily does wonders for your body in the long run.
  9. Now add the peas and cover the utensil to let it steam and boil the potatoes
  10. Now sprinkle a bit of water on your bread crumbs. Remember, just enough to moist the crumbs and slightly soften them if they have become too hard in the refrigerator.
  11. Check after about 5 minutes if your potatoes are well cooked, then add the bread crumbs on them
  12. Mix all well so that the crumbs gets coated with the salt, yellow color and mustard seeds
  13. Now add a teaspoon of tomato ketchup to the mix. Mix well, and turn off the heat
  14. Cover for a minute or two, and add chopped fresh coriander for garnishing
  15. Your healthy snack is ready

Once you actually cook it, you will see how easy and tasty it is!

Hi Saurabh,

It was wonderful coming across your blog. I especially loved the panner recipes because that is what I have at home now and was not quite sure how to go about cooking them without too much effort.

Keep putting in those recipes. I will be coming back for more!

BTW, why do you call it Bread Poha when there is no no Poha in the recipe?
