Besan Bread Toast

23 Feb

Besan Bread Toast.

This is a simple and easy bread toast prepared with gram flour and yogurt. Besan and yogurt are mixed together along with crushed roasted peanuts and carsom seeds. This mixture is used as a bread spread and then the bread is toasted on a flat pan on both sides till its golden brown in color.
Makes: 4 Besan Bread Toasts.


Wheat or White Bread Slices 4
Besan / Gram Flour 3 – 4 tbsps
Plain Thick Yogurt 4 – 5 tbsps
Roasted Peanuts 1 tbsp
Red Chile Powder 1/4 tsp
Ajwain / Carom Seeds 1/8 tsp
Cilantro few Sprigs
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Wash and finely chop cilantro leaves.
Grind the roasted peanuts into coarse powder using a spice grinder.
In a mixing bowl, mix together gram flour, peanuts powder, yogurt, red chili powder, ajwain, cilantro and salt into smooth thick paste without any lumps. Don’t add water.

Heat a flat pan on medium high heat, apply a tsp of oil to the pan.
Spread a thick layer of the prepared besan mixture on one side of the bread slice with help of a spoon.
Carefully place the bread slice on the hot pan and fry it until its light golden in color.
Just before turning the bread slice on the other side, apply a thick layer of the besan mixture on the side.
Fry the other side of the bread slice until its light golden in color.
Remove the toasted bread onto a serving plate.

Repeat the same with remaining bread slices or if you have space on the pan, place couple of them at a time.
Serve gram flour bread toast immediately along with a chutney or pickle of your choice.
Notes: Make sure bread slices are toasted well.

Suggestions: If the gram flour mixture is too loose, add more gram flour and mix well. If the gram flour mixture is too thick, stir in more yogurt. Add more red chile powder for heat or serve the toasted bread with a spicy chutney.
Variations: You can also throw in some mixed herbs into the mixture. You can also toast the bread a little before applying the gram flour mixture.
Other Names: Gram Flour Bread Toast, Besan Bread Toast, Indian Style Bread Toast.

    This recipe is quite different.Sounds easy but no one would have even thought of trying it this way.My one suggestion is if we kasundi paste to this it will be even more delicious.
    Good going!!!!
