Have you tried making bread this way?

Bread Fry is a delightful and flavorful snack that turns ordinary bread into a delicious treat. It offers a perfect blend of crispy bread cubes coated in a tangy, savory sauce made with tomatoes, onions, and spices. This snack is enjoyed by all ages and is a fantastic way to transform regular toast into an exciting dish.

Bread fry


- 8 to 10 slices of bread (White preferably, since it tastes better or wholemeal)

- 1 large onion, finely chopped

- 2 tomatoes, diced

- 2 tablespoons oil

- 1 tablespoon butter

- 2 tablespoons ketchup

- Salt to taste

- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)

- A handful of fresh coriander leaves, chopped

- Optional: Mustard seeds, curry leaves for tempering

Preparation Time: 15 minutes  

Servings: 2-3


1. Prepare the Bread:

   - Toast the white bread slices in butter until they are golden brown.

   - Remove the crusts and cut the bread into small squares. Set aside.

2. Prepare the Tempering:

   - In a pan, heat oil over medium heat.

   - Add mustard seeds and let them crackle.

   - Add curry leaves and sauté for a few seconds until fragrant.

3. Cooking the Vegetables:

   - Add finely chopped onions to the pan and sauté until they turn translucent.

   - Stir in diced tomatoes and cook until they soften and release their juices.

   - Season with salt, turmeric powder, and chili powder. Mix well and let it cook for a couple of minutes.

4. Adding Ketchup and Bread:

   - Add ketchup to the mixture and stir until everything is well combined.

   - Carefully add the bread squares to the pan and gently mix to coat them with the tomato mixture.

5. Final Steps:

   - Cover the pan with a lid and let the bread fry on low heat for 5-8 minutes. This allows the flavors to blend and the bread to absorb the delicious sauce.

   - Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking. If it looks too dry, you can sprinkle a little water.

6. Garnish and Serve:

   - Once the bread is cooked and has absorbed the flavors, turn off the heat.

   - Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

   - Serve hot as a delicious snack or light meal.
