  • 5 to 6 slices bread
  • 1 cup besan flour
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp capsicum finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp carrot grated
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/4 tsp ajwain
  • a pinch turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped
  • salt to taste
  • water as needed
  • oil / butter to toast


  • Take your bread slices and keep it ready.To a mixing bowl add all ingredients except bread and water.Mix the dry ingredietns well first.
  • Add water little by little to form a slightly thick batter so that it can coat the bread.
  • Heat dosa tawa spread oil/ghee - Dip the bread slice into the batter coat on both sides.
  • Immediately add it to tawa.Cook covered for 2mins or until the top looks cooked.Open, drizzle oil on top.
  • Flip over and press slightly.Cook until golden brown on both the sides.


  • My bread slices were small so 6 toasts could be made.If your slices are big like sandwich bread then only 3-4 toasts cane be made.Depends on how thick you want the coating to be.
  • Make sure you just coat the bread slices,quickly dip and toast else the bread will become soggy and start to tear.
  • I did not add green chillies as it may come in mouth while eating so added red chilli powder instead but its your preference.
  • I toasted with oil, but you can either toast with butter or ghee too.
  • Cook until golden brown in low medium flame, do not burn the toasts.
