Bread and Vegetable Mix

This is a good morning tiffin box dish. Though adults would like to have it hot, the kids would love to take it with them to school.

Bread - 10slices
Onion - 2nos
Tomato - 2nos
Ginger (grated) - 1/4tsp
Bell pepper (any color) - 1/2no
Grean peas - little
Carrot (shredded) - little
Corriander leaves - little
Curry leaves - little
Green chilli - 1-2nos.
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt - a pinch
Sugar - a pinch
Hing - little
Mustard - 1/4tsp
Jeera - 1/4tsp
Urad dhal split - 1tsp
Channa dhal - 1tsp
Lemon juice - few drops
Chat powder - little
Oil - little

1. Toast the bread in a toaster and cut them into small squares. This would avoid using too much of oil, if toasted in a tawa, though it would be tasty and have a different taste.
2. Cut onions, tomatoes and bell pepper and green chilli into small bits.
3. Heat the tawa, add oil and when heated, add on hing, mustard, dhals and fry till they are golden brown.
4. Add the onions and saute. Then add the green chilli, curry leaves and bell pepper. Add the turmeric powder and fry well.After two minutes add tomatoes. Stir and add peas. Add salt and sugar. Mix well. Add the shredded carrots. Remove from fire once the pepper is crunchy or till it is done - its your choice.
5. Add in the bread squares, chat powder, corriander leaves, lemon juice and toss well.
