Tadka Bread With Yogurt Dip

This month Sushma has chosen Prathiba's - The Chef and her Kitchen blog for this month's Tried and Tasted.As you may remember, this event was started by Zlamuska and is now being run by Lakshmi I have already prepared quite a few recipes from Prathiba's blog and this one too joins the list.This recipe makes use of left over bread and is a quick and tasty way to use up the loaf if its been around for too long. A simple side dish of yogurt lightly beaten with a few spice powders makes a wonderful dip.

For Tadka Bread
I used : [The original recipe is here]

Bread slices -10
Onion -1, sliced
Tomato-1 chopped
Green chillies- 2, chopped
Yogurt - 2 tablespoons
Turmeric powder- a large pinch
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds- 1 teaspoon
Oil- 2 teaspoon
Lemon juice to taste
Salt to taste
Coriander to garnish

  1. Toast the bread slices till golden brown and cube them. I totally forgot this step!
  2. Heat a pan with oil and put in mustard, cumin and curry leaves.
  3. When the mustard crackles, add the finely chopped onion, green chillies and fry the onion till golden brown.
  4. Put in turmeric, salt, lightly beaten curd and saute for a minute.
  5. Add the bread cubes and mix well.
  6. Cook for a few minutes and add the chopped tomatoes.
  7. Cook for a minute. The tomatoes must not get mushy.
  8. Remove from heat, sprinkle lemon juice and serve garnished
Serve with yogurt dip.

For Yogurt Dip
I used:

Fresh curd- 1 cup, lighly beaten
Red chilli powder - 1/2 a teaspoon
Black pepper powder- 1/4 teaspoon
Salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients together. Chill and serve as a dip
