Recipe for :

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 until golden.
  • Add the chopped bread, salt and lime juice to the fried onion and gently sauté over low heat until 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.
