Besan on Toast

Besan on Toast

Basic recipe adapted from GoodHousekeeping Magazine

This is an excellent protein rich dish, and it is very tasty.

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 2

You will need

4 slices of bread ( use multi grain / brown bread / whole wheat bread )

5 tablespoon besan ( gram flour / kadala maav / chone pitti )

1 onion

1 tomato

1 small green chilli, deseeded

1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander leaves

Salt to taste ( or 1/2 teaspoon )

1 tablespoon oil


Finely chop the onion, tomato, green chilli and coriander leaves.

Mix the besan with the chopped ingredients and salt to taste.

Add a little water ( 1 - 2 tablespoon ) to make a smooth, thick batter.

Toast the bread. Spread the besan mixture evenly on one side of the slice.

Heat a oil in tawa / frying pan and place the batter applied side in the oil. Cook on a low heat for a few minutes until golden color. Plain side need not be fried.

Cut the slices into triangles ( warm the bread knife a little before slicing the bread ). Serve hot with tomato ketchup or chutneys.
