How to use up Stale Bread – Part 1

Part One /:) … it’s not a series going on here, just that I prepared couple of dishes using up few stale slices of expensive Multigrain Bread which was lying in my refrigerator for a more than a week. And I plan to post them in two posts so Part One :P

So how do you use up Stale Bread?

If by any chance you throw it, please do not do it the next time. Bread is a good adherer so I normally use it in a Tikki, tomato omelette or thalipeeth.

I experimented with this weird dish which can be christened as “Omelette Thalipeeth”, as the final output looked like a hybrid between Thalipeeth and Omelette. Ignore the prehistoric snap of my poor omelette but this is my regular omelette. I crumbled the stale bread along with the other ingredient in this and so newborn “Omelette Thalipeeth” was born. 8->IMG_3788

You Do:

  1. Mix Capsicum +Onion+ Green chillies + Crumbled bread+salt + Pepper + Egg.
  2. Beat Vigorously – Mostly it should look like sticky dough.
  3. Heat the pan and add butter. Spread the Mix evenly into a round shape with spatula.
  4. Cook both the sides till light brown. IMG_3789

Done! Have it simply with ketchup. If you are a cheese fan then garnish with whole lot of cheese. I loved this experiment and knew it should go on my blog.

It always gives a great deal of gratification when I use up something which was supposed to be a leftover or a waste. When I prepared Jackfruit Seeds Sabzi or ridge gourd peel chutney or Snake gourd Seeds chutney, gave me immense satisfaction that I avoided throwing stuffs.

On similar lines my cousin G has posted Bitter gourd and Pumpkin Peel chutney. Do check out.
