Sesame Veggie Toast

For my first blog post, I've selected a recipe inspired by Tarla Dalal.

This Sesame Veggie Toast can be eaten for breakfast. I, personally, enjoy this meal with a cup of Indian tea or coffee. With only 10 minutes of preparation time, it is simple to make - even for beginners!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serving: for 4 people


  • 1/3 cup cream of wheat/Semolina 
  • 2 plum tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 red capsicum (diced)
  • 1 green capsicum (diced)
  • 1 teaspoon ginger (finely chopped)
  • 4 green chili (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves (fined chopped)
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 8 slices of bread (your choice of bread)
  • 2 tablespoons of oil (any oil will do)
  • pinch of asafoetida (also known as hing)
  • 1/4 stick of butter OR 6 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 1 cup water
  • sandwich masala (to taste)
  • salt (to taste)
  • ketchup and/or green chutney
  1. Heat oil in pan 
  2. Once oil is warm (not bubbling), add asafoetida/hing 
  3. Immediately after, add tomatoes, red and green capsicums and cook for 2-3 minutes
  4. Now add in ginger and green chilies and cook for 15 seconds
  5. When ready, add cream of wheat and saute for 2-3 minutes
  6. Add salt to taste and mix
  7. On the side, boil water. Then, slowly add the water to the mix while stirring to create a buttery consistency so it can easily spread on the bread. Note, you might not need the full cup of water. 
  8. Add chopped coriander and mix
  9. Now, spread the mixture on lightly toasted bread
  10. Sprinkle sesame seeds and sandwich masala on top of the mixture. Do the same with remaining toasted slices.
  11. On a medium heated pan, spread butter or olive oil
  12. Next, put the bread with mixture facing down into the pan until it is golden brown
  13. Flip the bread until the other side is also golden brown. Repeat the process with the rest of the bread.
  14. Serve hot with ketchup or green chutney
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
