HOW TO MAKE OR PREPARE BESAN BREAD TOAST RECIPE
Take a mixing bowl. Add chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, green chillies, ginger, coriander leaves. Then add besan, rice flour, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder, salt and hing. Mix well.
Add water little by little and make a batter of medium consistency. Ensure there are no lumps at all. Cut the bread in two triangular slices.
Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a tawa or a frying pan. Dip the bread slice into the batter with your hands and coat the slice evenly with the batter. Do not keep the slice in the batter for too long, as the slice tends to break otherwise.
Place the coated bread slices in the tawa and roast on both the sides till golden brown in colour. Repeat with the other bread slices.
Serve besan bread toast hot with tomato ketchup or green coriander chutney.
Ensure that the batter is of medium consistency. If it is too thin, the slices will not get coated properly.
Use non-stick tawa for best results.
You can also add pepper powder instead of red chilli powder for a more spicy flavour.
