Iyengar bakery style masala toast recipe. scrumptious and delicious is this iyengar bakery style masala toast. Iyengar bakery in bangalore is popular for some of their snacks like masala buns, butter biscuits, khara biscuits, sweet puffs and veg puffs. Veg masala toast is one of them. Eggless honey cake which I had shared earlier is also one of their fast selling cakes.

In this veg masala toast recipe, the toast is made similar to open toasts or sandwiches. The mix vegetable filling is placed on top of a crisp toasted bread and then served hot or warm. The slightly tangy, spiced and faintly sweet veggie filling tastes too good with crisp toasted bread. The tanginess in the veg filling comes from the addition of tomatoes. Onions and carrots contribute to a slightly sweetish taste. Capsicum is also added which gives an overall nice flavor to the entire filling.
