Indian Toast / Bread Bajji - Diet Version

Bread bajji5

You would always need some handy quick fix recipes to fulfill the 4 PM tummy grumbling. Mostly people end it up by having a cup of coffee and munching some fried snacks. But I am a no coffee, no tea person and I am not for fried items too. So a healthy salad, or a non fried snack is what I keep looking for.

Its a bajji that is roasted on a pan and not deep fried :) Wow, so isn't it a diet version??!!

Crispy and spicy crust with soft and subtle bread makes me say ummmmm :)

Bread bajji

Ingredients:

Bread - 10 slices (Salted or sandwich)
Chickpea flour(Besan / Kadalamaavu) - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1 cup
Chilly powder - 2 tsp
Onion - 1
Ginger - 1/4 inch piece
Garlic - 5 pods
Salt - for taste
Lemon juice - few drops

Bread bajji4

Method:

Cut the ends of the bread and slice them diagonally to make triangles.

Grind onion, ginger and garlic together into a fine paste.

Take a large flat bowl and mix in the besan, rice flour, salt, chilly powder and the ground ingredients by adding some water into a thick paste (like bajji batter). Finally add few drops of lemon juice and mix it well.

Heat a pan or skillet. Dip the bread into the batter on both the sides and roast them on the hot skillet by adding few drops of oil to it. Remove from pan when it is roasted golden brown on both the sides.

Serve it hot with tomato ketchup. Yummy and light bread bajji is ready :)

Happy making :)

Note:

You can replace besan flour with corn meal flour as a variation.

Add chillies while grinding the onions to give the extra spice.

Deep fry them if you are not diet conscious.
