Besan Bread Toast is a easy to make, delicious Toast that can be made for either morning or evening Tiffin . Bread slices are dipped in gram flour batter and cooked on tawa till crisp. Finely chopped onions, tomatoes , green chillies and herbs are only veggies , I add to make this toast. But other vegetables like capsicum , cabbage , carrot can also be added to the gram flour batter to make it more nutritious and tasty . Depending on your taste you can add or delete any veggies of your choice.

Besan Bread Toast

I like besan bread pakora with Green Chutney but as it drinks lots of oil , I don’t make it or eat it . Its very rare , may be once in a year occasionally , I indulge with bread pakora. So my alternative for those deep fried bread pakora is this besan toast. Deliveries almost similar taste with less oil . Hence , I’m ok with it having for my evening snack or for my lazy mornings.
