Easy Leftover Bread - Indian Recipes

Updated on October 23, 2012

Recipes using Leftover Bread

Many times we happen to have left over bread from the previous day which the kids refuse to eat as it is. My solution to this mostly is Bread Dosa or Bread Upma. These are excellent as a breakfast dish or an evening snack.

Are you wondering what to do with your leftover bread? Given below are two quick and easy recipes using left over bread.

Bread Dosa Recipe

Given below are the Ingredients and Method of Preparation of Bread Dosa.

Ingredients of Bread Dosa

  • Bread 6 pieces

  • Rice flour1/2 cup

  • Moong Dal ½ cup

  • Rava ½ cup

  • ½ Cup Curd

  • Chopped onion 1 small

  • Chopped Coriander leaves

  • Cumin seeds ½ teaspoon

  • Dry Red chillies 2

  • 1 small piece of Ginger

  • Salt to taste

How to Prepare Bread Dosa

Soak all the ingredients except curd, chopped coriander leaves and salt for minimum half an hour and then grind to a very fine paste. Add curd, coriander leaves and salt to the batter. Mix well. Use this batter to make thin dosas on a hot greased Skillet or griddle. Cook till the dosa is brown both sides. Serve hot with chutney. Believe me, this is a wonderful variation to a normal dosa.

Bread Upma Recipe

Given below are the Ingredients and Method of Preparation of Bread Upma.

Ingredients of Bread Upma

  • 6 Slices of Bread cut into pieces
  • 1 Medium Potato Cooked and cut into pieces
  • 1 Medium Onion finely chopped
  • 1 Medium Tomato chopped
  • ½ Cup shelled peas
  • ½ Cup grated carrot
  • 2 green chilies slit
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Chopped Coriander leaves
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste


Oil 2 tsp

Mustard Seeds ¼ tsp

Bengal gram ¼ tsp

Black gram ¼ tsp

Curry leaves

How to prepare Bread Upma

Heat 2 tsp oil in a Kadai and do a seasoning by spluttering mustard seeds, and then adding Bengal gram, black gram and curry leaves. Add the vegetables (potato, carrots and green peas) and fry for a minute. Add onion, and green chilies till the onion turns slightly brownish. Now add the chopped tomatoes, turmeric, salt and bread pieces and mix well. Sprinkle some water on the mixture, lower the flame and close with the lid so that the upma is cooked. Remove from stove after 3-4 minutes and add lemon juice and coriander leaves. Mix well and serve hot.

    Wow!this was fantastic-I had some leftover onion bread (not very tasty)...that I was loath to throw away... I came across this dosa recipe quite by chance..and wanted to try it out.:.I made a few changes-since it was onion bread that i had leftover-I left the onions out of the batter..right before I made the dosas,I added finely chopped onions,green chillies and cilantro-and was pleased! Will definitely make again! A 5/5 simply because it's such a unique idea made out of ingredients readily available at home! Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
