Besan Bread Toast, Tava Bread Toast

This is a very unique, classically Indian toast that is made by tava-cooking bread coated with a batter of besan perked up with spice powders and veggies.

The Besan Bread Toast has a crisp and spicy, veggie-dotted outer surface that reminds you of bhajiyas.

This slowly gives way to the succulent and mildly flavoured bread inside. When you chew the whole thing together, you get a pleasant mix of flavours and textures that is really awesome.

You can also try other toast recipes like the Crispy Spinach and Paneer Open Toasts or Ladi Pav Bhaji Toasts .
