Prep time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • Bread Slices: 8
  • Rava (Semolina / Sooji) ½ cup
  • Curd (Plain Yogurt): 2 Tablespoon
  • Water: ½ cup or as required
  • Salt: ½ teaspoon or as required
  • Red Chili Powder: ¼ Teaspoon
  • Chaat Masala: ½ Teaspoon
  • Butter: as required to roast
  • Onion: ½ of a medium one, finely chopped
  • Bell Pepper: 1/4th of a medium one, finely chopped
  • Tomato: 1, finely chopped
  • Green chili: 1, finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves: 1 tablespoon, finely chopped

Method

  • In a bowl whisk curd. Add rava, salt, red chili powder, chaat masala, chopped onion, bell pepper, tomato, chili and coriander leaves in the bowl. Mix well.
  • Add water to make a thick batter like toothpaste. Keep this aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a non-sticky tawa.
  • Once the tawa is hot, grease it with butter.
  • Place as many bread-slices on it separately as you can. I used 4 slices at a time.
  • Add 2 tablespoon of the rava batter on top of each bread-slices and gently spread it all around.
  • Wait for 1 minute, when the rava layer starts to dry up a little, apply litter butter on each slice and flip them all carefully.
  • While you are waiting for the rava layer to become dry, keep an eye on the bottom part of the bread-slices, they might over-cooked, so adjust the heat accordingly.
  • Roast for 1 minute.
  • Flip and roast until both sides are done well.
  • Take them out. Serve with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
