  5. mumbai masala cheese toast sandwich

the specialty of the cheese stuffing is that, besides the hotness of the green chili, it also has the aromatic taste of ginger. this is how i have been making cheese chili toast for the family for years now. while our neighbor aunt used to add a good quantity of ginger, i usually reduce the amount to suit our taste buds. if you do not prefer ginger, then you can skip it or add garlic instead.

the toast can also be made into a sandwich. just grill or toast the sandwich in sandwich maker or toaster. sometimes i make a toast sandwich and sometimes i just make the toasts like the recipe posted here.

this chili toast recipe is made in the oven. if you don’t have an oven, toast the bread on a tawa/flat pan (check the notes in the recipe details below). on tawa, the cheese will melt but won’t get golden as in the case with the oven made toasts. yet the cheese chili toasts made on tawa tastes good.

you can use white bread, brown bread, multi grain bread or whole wheat bread. since i make a loaf of whole wheat bread or buns every once or twice a week, i have used this bread to make the cheese chilli toast. also i use both cheddar and mozzarella cheese on various occasions while preparing the toasts. you can make the toast with regular plain cheese.

    • welcome clyde. glad to know this.

  4. I don’t have oven,so can you please suggest an alternative for baking and browning the bread

    • you can use a tava. spread the butter and the cheese mixture on top. heat the tava. then on a low flame place the bread slices on the tava. once the bread slices are lightly toasted, then cover them with a lid so that the cheese melts. once the cheese melts and the bread is toasted well, serve the cheese chilli toast.
