  • mix very well on a low flame taking care that the spices do not burn.
  • then add ½ cup tightly packed finely chopped tomatoes and 1 green chili (chopped). mix well.
  • season with salt as per taste. do add less salt as bread also has salt. mix again.
  • sauté tomatoes till they become pulpy and soften. you should also see oil releasing from the sides of the onion-tomato masala. add a few tablespoons water if the tomatoes stick to the pan.
  • when the tomatoes have softened, add 1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves and 1 to 2 pinches kasuri methi (crushed). kasuri methi can be skipped if you don’t have it.
  • mix again and then add the bread cubes.
  • mix bread cubes very well with the onion-tomato masala and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes. for a crispy texture in the bread you can sauté them for some more time stirring at intervals on a low to medium-low flame. 
  • while serving bread masala drizzle some lemon juice on top. you can even garnish with a few chopped coriander leaves. serve bread masala hot or warm.
