Vegetable Toast...Bangalore Iyengar Bakery style...!!!!

Print Friendly and PDF
I got introduced to this toast only in Bangalore bakeries,especially in Iyengar bakeries which are located widely in the city.Iyengar bakeries are famous for their signature items like vegetable toasts,aloo buns,khara bun,khara bread,benne biscuits,khara biscuits,plain sponge loaf cake,fruit cake,vegetable puff's etc..etc.My visit to Bangalore will not be complete without having these bakery stuff from Iyengar bakeries.This toast is very simple and filling and is a perfect snack to have with tea in the evening or a couple of slices to have as morning breakfast and is also ideal for kid's lunch box.You can even cut those slices into long strips and serve in parties as an appetizer.

Ingredients:
8-10 Whole wheat/White bread slices

1 medium carrot,grated
1 medium onion,finely chopped
1 small capsicum,finely chopped

1 medium ripen tomato,finely chopped

2-3 tbsp chopped coriander

2 green chillies,finely chopped

1/2 tsp red chilli powder

1/2 tsp chat masala(optional)

1/4 tsp jeera

a pinch of sugar

2 tsp tomato sauce

salt to taste

2 tsp oil

1 tbsp butter


Method:
  • Heat oil in a pan and crackle jeera and then add finely chopped onions and green chillies and fry until they are translucent.
  • Add chopped tomato and capsicum and fry them for 2 mins until they are slightly done(no need to make tomatoes mushy).
  • Add grated carrots,red chili powder,chat masala,a pinch of sugar,salt and mix well and cook for a minute.
  • Add chopped coriander and tomato ketchup and mix well.and remove from stove and keep it aside.
  • Heat a thick non stick tawa and toast bread on one side then apply this mixture on that toasted side properly and level it with a spoon and apply butter to the tawa and toast the other side until red and crisp.
Serve it hot with tomato sauce.You can even cut it into half diagonally and serve.

Note:
  • You can even cover with another slice and grill it and have like normal sandwich.
  • You can even add colored peppers and grated paneer to the above vegetable mixture for yummy toast.
  • Avoid butter in the recipe for a Vegan version
