masala bread recipe

to make bread masala, a base of onion-tomatoes and spices is made. the bread cubes are mixed with this masala base. as a result the bread cubes get coated with this tangy and spicy masala and tastes too good. usually we prefer masala soaked soft bread cubes. but you can cook the bread for more time and get a crisp and toasted texture on the bread.

as a healthier alternative use wheat bread or multi grain bread. since making masala bread does not take a lot of time and gets done quickly, you can serve as a quick snack for unexpected guests or friends. you can also serve masala bread as an after school snack for kids. for small kids skip the green chilies and red chili powder and reduce garam masala powder.

in this bread masala recipe you can also use pav (bread rolls) instead of bread. pav bhaji masala can be added instead of garam masala powder. if using pav bhaji masala, then you can add some finely chopped capsicum along with the tomatoes.

  1. Tried this recipe for breakfast today.used pav bhaji masala and added carrots,cabbage as well as capsicum.turned out yummy and delicious.

  2. Hi Dassana,

    I have been trying to recreate my mum’s recipe for this that she would make me on Saturday mornings. Her recipe is very Gujarati, so I enjoyed trying it with ginger and garlic this time. Also the tomato paste stops it drying out which is fantastic.

    The only changes were that I don’t like coriander, so used curry leaves. I also added some hing in the spice mix and a small sprinkle of sugar to balance the salt.

    Truly delicious recipe! Thank you!

    • thank you. there are many variations that can be done in masala bread recipe. yes, tomatoes do not make the bread too dry. the moistness and softness in the bread taste good. thanks for sharing the variations you made and also for the rating. welcome and happy cooking.

  3. Hey Dassana!
    I’m a chef who did my training abroad ,so couldn’t really practice Indian recipes…I googled, found your recipe and just tried it out, and it came out really well!!
    I am a true non-vegetarian by heart! But this turned out to be a beautiful dinner !!!! Thanks a lot for the recipe🤗💖

  4. Hi Dassana,
    I am not a vegetarian but simply love vegetable and this website has changed my life.
    I would like to get some veg breakfast recipes that contain eggs….scrambled, fried or poached.
    I placed 2 poached eggs over the masala bread recipe and it turned out devine.

  5. This is really easy and tastier recipe.I use to make similar kind of recipe, by grinding all the ingredients without cooking and then dipping the bread pieces in it and then frying them.This is kind of 3 step procedure.Burt the one you shared seems very easy and i think i can have it as breakfast.
    thanks for sharing
