Recipe for family meals :

Fried Bread

This is one of the recipes that has been provided by Vandana who is very much a keen cook of Indian dishes. Hopefully there will be more to come!

I asked Vandana for a little background information:

"I live in Pune, India. I am a South Indian so many of my recipes are from that area. I enjoy cooking and my family and friends do say that it is appetizing! By profession I am a Relocation Consultant and the India head of an International Charity. I hope that covers the introduction".


10 - 12 slices of white / brown bread chopped into 1 inch cubes
1 large onion chopped finely
3 - 4 green chilies (pepper) chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
3 - 4 curry leaves (optional)
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tsp lime juice
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste


  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, let them crackle.
  • Put in cumin, turmeric and curry leaves if used. Fry for a few seconds.
  • Put in chopped onion and sauté till golden. Add the chopped bread, salt and lime juice to the fried onion and gently sauté over low heat till the spices coat the bread.
  • Cover and cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove from the heat without removing the lid over the pan.
  • Serve after 5 minutes, garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
