Kwik Fix Series # 6 - Bread Peas Masala


Have you ever wondered how to make use of the leftover bread? After having bread toasts & sandwiches, you might still be left with half a pack and got sick of the usual recipes. You can make the best out of it and add an Indian touch to come up with a lip-smacking snack. If you have frozen green peas ready, you can make this under 30 minutes. Quick, easy, healthy & also helps to clear the leftover bread - what more do you need? I am sure you will go for a fresh loaf just to make this. Adding this recipe to my kwik fix series.

Ingredients:
Green peas (fresh/frozen) - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium chopped
Tomato - 1 medium
Cinnamon, Clove - 1 each
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Dhania powder - 2 tsp
Jeera - 2 tsp
Green Chillies slit - 1 or 2
Oil - 3 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cilantro,chopped onions, tomato ring & lemon wedge - to garnish

Method:
1) If you are using fresh peas, pressure cook separately. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.
2) Add oil, season with jeera, cinnamon, clove and green chillies. Add the chopped onions and fry well. Add the chopped tomatoes. Cook and add the dry powders & salt.
3) Add the frozen peas/cooked peas. Add a little water about half to one cup. Cook well and till the water gets absorbed.
4) Add the ghee and switch off.
5) Cut the corners of bread, pour the peas masala on top. Garnish and serve hot.


Tips & Variation:
1.Just like Bread peas masala, you can make bread channa by pouring chole masala on top of the bread.
2. Or you can toast the bread just like toasting pav bun and serve as Bread Bhaji. Check Pav Bhaji recipe here.

I wish my husband liked peas; I'd make this straight away. Looks like I'll have to prepare it for a lunch alone. ; )

Thanks for another great MLLA recipe, Vidya!
