preparation for chinese toast recipe
rinse and take 2 medium potatoes in a 2 litre pressure cooker. add water just about covering the potatoes.
pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles on medium flame. when the pressure settles down on its own, remove the lid. remove the boiled potatoes and let them become warm.
once warm then peel and mash them very well with a fork. keep the mashed potatoes aside and let it cool completely.
now grate or finely chop the veggies.
do chop the veggies finely.
making stuffing for chinese toast
take the grated or finely chopped veggies in a bowl.
add ½ teaspoon ginger-garlic paste, ½ teaspoon soy sauce, ¼ teaspoon red chilli powder, ½ teaspoon cumin powder, ½ teaspoon coriander powder, ¼ teaspoon garam masala powder and ½ teaspoon chaat masala.
add salt as required. mix very well.
then add 1 to 2 tablespoons bread crumbs. addition of bread crumbs is to bind the mixture. you can also add 1 to 2 tablespoons corn flour (corn starch), oats flour or rice flour instead of bread crumbs.
mix again very well. check the taste and add more salt or any of the spice powders if required.
making chinese toast
now slice the bread in two triangles.
spread the vegetable stuffing on the bread slices.
take 3 to 4 tablespoons white sesame seeds in a plate.
take the bread slice.
place the filling side facing the sesame seeds, so that the sesame seeds stick to it.
press the sesame seeds with a spoon or with clean fingers so that they stick to the vegetable filling.
pan frying the chinese toast
heat 1 to 2 tablespoons oil in a tawa or frying pan. place the bread slices with the sesame seeds side touching the tawa. add less oil as bread absorbs more oil. if and when required, while frying the bread in batches you can add more oil.
when this filling side is light golden or golden, turn over each side and toast the bread side.
toast till the bread side is crisp and golden. you can flip the toasts a couple of times more if you want.
place the chinese toast on kitchen paper towels so that any extra oil is absorbed. toast all the vegetable toasts this way.
serve chinese vegetable toast hot with any chutney, sauce or dip of your choice. while serving you can garnish chinese toast with some spring onion greens or chopped coriander leaves.
