Bread Masala

Let me start with a confession. I did not make this dish this time. This time around, it was my husband who made it. But I still shamelessly clicked the pictures. It makes an interesting blog entry you see.This is apparently a street food item that is sold in his native home town Manipal.

Manipal is loaded with students - it boasts of the finest medical, engineering and management schools. It is a favored destination by NRI students. Though it sounds like a sleepy hamlet, its abuzz with such kind of activities, stalls and night life. I've not yet tasted the bread masala sold on the streets, but my husband always makes a close replica (as certified by his family), so I am assuming the street food is yum as well. Here is how it is made.


  • Bread - 6-8 slices
  • Egg - 2
  • Onion - 1 big
  • Tomato - 2
  • Green Chilly - 2-3
  • Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
  • Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Ginger (Chopped) - 1 tsp
  • Chilly Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Corriander Leaf - 1 handful chopped
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil -  2 tbsp
  • Remove the sides from the bread and cut into squares
  • Beat the egg till fluffy,
  • Chop onions, tomatoes, chillies into fine pieces
  • Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds.
  • Add the ginger and green chilly and fry well.
  • Add the onions and fry till translucent
  • Add the tomatoes and cook covered till tomatoes are done.
  • Heat the dish till all the water from the tomatoes has evaporated.
  • Add the beaten egg, turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt and scramble till half done.
  • Add the cut bread slices and mix well.
  • Cook till the eggs are fully done.
  • Add chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.

Enjoy your Bread Masala! You could try variations in this by adding veggies of ur choice or Corn n Peas (My favorites). You could also try variations with the masala used - maybe chaat masala or Pav Bhaji Masala available in the market would be good as well. Not sure, haven't tried that yet!
