MASALA BREAD TOAST

MASALA BREAD TOAST

In my house, we use bread quite often. I always prefer to use brown bread. Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes with bread such as Mint Chutney Sandwich and Oats Moong Toast 

Masala Bread Toast is an easy to make yet delicious and filling any time snack. It can be made using sandwich bread, white bread or brown bread.

While adding sugar is optional, I prefer to add this. I also prefer to use the store-bought Catch Chaat Masala.


Ingredients:-

  • Brown Bread, 6 slices
  • Onion, finely chopped, 1/2 cup
  • Tomato, finely chopped, 1/2 cup 
  • Carrot, grated, 1/2 cup
  • Capsicum, finely chopped, 1/4 cup 
  • Mustard Seeds, 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds, 1/2 tsp
  • Green Chillies, finely chopped, 2
  • Curry Leaves, 4-5 
  • Chilli Powder, 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder, 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin Powder, 1/4 tsp
  • Chaat Masala, 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander Leaves, 1 tbsp
  • Sugar, 1 tsp (optional) 
  • Tomato Sauce, 1 tbsp
  • Butter, as required to toast the bread slices 
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, 2-3 tsp 
Method:

Heat oil in a thick bottomed non-stick pan and when it gets hot on medium heat add the mustard seeds and when they splutter add the cumin seeds.
When the cumin seeds sizzle add the finely chopped green chillies and curry leaves and saute for a few seconds
Add the chopped onion and a little salt and saute till the onion becomes translucent
To this, add the chopped tomatoes and cook till it becomes soft
Next add the grated carrots and chopped capsicum and mix well
Cover and cook on medium/low flame till the vegetables are almost done
(There is no need to add any water. Let the vegetables cook in their own juices)
Now add salt to taste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, and chaat masala and mix well 
and cook for a couple of minutes so that the vegetables fully cooked and well blended with the spice powders
Add sugar and tomato sauce and cook for a minute more
Finally add the chopped coriander leaves
The topping for the Masala Bread Toast is ready. Keep aside
Lightly apply butter on both sides of each of the bread slices
Heat a tawa and toast the buttered bread slices on both sides
Add the prepared topping to each of the toasted bread slices
Serve the Toasted Masala Bread as such or cut diagonally into triangles
