This is a healthy version of a Bread bajji in which the besan batter dipped bread slices are toasted on a tawa with a less oil instead of deep frying. Green chilli and coriander leaves are made into fine paste and added to the besan flour is further made into batter by adding water. Then, the bread slices are dipped in the besan batter and toasted on the tawa with a minimal oil. This is a perfect evening snack for kids and also can be served as breakfast along with Mint chutney. Variations can be done in this recipe by adding grated carrots, beetroots etc which in addition also makes the toast more healthy. To make it more spicy, increase the addition of chilli or add 1/2 tsp of red chilli powder to the recipe.
