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 suji 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 bread, brown bread or whole-wheat sandwich bread. You can use fresh bread or even a few days old bread.

How to make suji toast

1. Add the rava, onion, tomatoes, green chilies, coriander, cream and salt in a bowl.

  5. 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… 🙁

    1. 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.

  10. Hi Amit,

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

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

  11. 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:-)

  13. 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?

      1. Made it today. It was very delicious. It was quicker than I thought, and would be faster with pre-chopped onions and tomatoes.5 stars

  19. 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 ! 🙂

    1. 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 yummy3 stars
