rava toast recipe with step by step photos – actually this recipe of rava or sooji toast should have been an earlier post. i missed adding this post somehow strangely, considering the fact that i have been making this recipe from my teens.

this rava toast was and still is one of our favorite breakfast recipes. on one of the tv shows, i had seen one elderly lady making this recipe. i found it ridiculously easy to make and from thence on, i have made these crisp toasts. both me and my sister would make these easy to make toasts for breakfast or an evening snack. specially on those days when mom would be busy or gone out for some work.

the rava toast recipe calls for simple ingredients like onion, tomatoes and rava (sooji or semolina or cream of wheat). along with these ingredients, cream is also added. you can also add malai instead of cream.

the choice of bread is yours – white bread, whole wheat breadbrown bread or whole wheat sandwich bread. you can use fresh bread or even a few days old bread.

  • Hi Dassana,

    Another excellent idea ! Today when , I was having the leftover bhaji made using your fabulous pav bhaji recipe , I was thinking of the idea of adding rava to the bread I was heating. Wasn't sure if it was a good idea. However now that I see you've made this fabulous recipe I will definitely go ahead and try adding rava to bread toast ! :)

    Btw thanks to your encouragement and fantastic recipe , I made the pav along with the bhaji . All in all it was a very satisfying experience. All I can say as usual is keep up the good work. Hope your work continues to inspire budding cooks like me ! :)

    • Curd is a better option than cream i hav been making this recepie since ages. One more thing i use is little baking soda which makes it fluffy n gives nice texture. Paneer n green bell pepper makes it yummy

  • I tried this.Su................per.Very easy to prepare and i even had this rava mixture on dosa.
    It tastes nice.Dosa with different taste.

  • Hello! I am so happy with yr recipes, the way you present in beautiful pictures, make easier to follow. Such a refined taste in all aspects, Congrats!!!

  • Hi dassana jee I wanted to know if we r supposed to roast the rawa before using in the mixture

  • Hi, Request to please inform the calorie count of this sooji toast with brown bread slices.


    • Shailey, I don't know the calorie counts in recipes. you have to check with a nutrition expert.

  • Hi Dassana ,
    I have become secret admirer of u n ur simplicity of presentation .Every recipie i tried comes out best .I don't know how to make chapati after marriage but now I'm good cook in our family.

  • Hi, I was wondering if the recipe for the rava can be made and stored in the fridge the night before or on a weekend to eat during the week?

  • hello dassana i have tried ur receipe it was awsmmm...
    Please share more easy and quick receipe..

  • Hello I am not a great cook but whenever I tried ur receipe they turn out to be awesome just like this one my hubby loved it thanks a ton:-)

  • Hi Amit,

    For sooji toast or rava toast receipe can we add a litttle water instead of cream or malai in the filling.

    • instead of water, you can add some curd/dahi. i would not suggest water as it might make the stuffing soggy.

  • wow so simple and easy to make recepie. I made it as evening snacks..n my hubby loved it so much that he frequently asks me to make it...thanks dasana... keep posting...

  • maam..
    wat can we use instead of cream...?
    milk will be a good substitute by adding a little of it?
    to make it lille bit tangy can v use curd?

  • I am a fan of all your recepies, have tried quite a few! All are presented in a very easy nd manner for amateur cooks like me :). Thanks a ton for making our life simple! Keep up d good work

  • mam i tried it but wen i turned the stuffed side of dis pizza... my cream gets converted into ghee :(
    please tell me which mistake i did... :(

    • its due to the quality of cream. i also make a cream cheese toast like the above recipe and never had this issue. so its due to the quality of cream that its getting converted to ghee. instead of cream you can also add fresh dahi/curd.

  • Excellent recipes,dassana ji. My kids loved rava toast. Your masala bhindi was also awesome.i tried it few days back.same was the experience vth other recipies....gr8.
    Thnx a lot..

  • Good recipe. I did a small change to it. I cooked the filing and then put it on the toast, as I found it difficult to cook on the frying pan with the filing. this was like upma on toast. It turned out well.

    • thats a very different variation shilpa. as you mention it will be like upma on toast. thanks for sharing 🙂

  • I was wondering tonight what to make for breakfast today tried it, and i am in love with this it such a quick and tasty dish
