Plantain Toast


Having toast for breakfast on a sunny morning is like a pleasant feast for me. I like to keep my breakfast simple yet delicious.

This plantain toast was sure a treat to the tongue and super healthy as well. Replacing potato to plantain makes it all the more healthy and a good way to add plantain to our food too :)



Plantain (Vazhakka/ Antikai) - 2
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Onions - 2
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Urad dhall - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 4
Salt - for taste
Lemon juice - 1 tblsp




To make the filling -

Cut each plantain into two without removing the skin. Take water in a heavy bottomed vessel and drop the cut plantains. Add some salt and turmeric powder to the water and cook this for around 10 mins on medium flame turning the plantains once in a while until well cooked. (or just cook the plantains in your own method until soft)

Remove from water and peal the skin off. Smash the plantains without lumps.

Dice onions into small squares. Chop the chillies finely.

Take 4 tsps of oil in a kadai and crackle mustard seeds and urad dhall. Now add the chopped onions and chillies and fry until onions turn golden brown.

Add the mashed plantain and cook on medium flame for 5 mins. Now add salt and mix well. Cook for another 10 mins with a lid on. Finally reduce the flame and mix in the lemon juice thoroughly.

Plantain filling is ready.


To make green chutney -

Grind a bunch of mint leaves along with 2 green chillies, salt and lemon juice into a smooth paste.

To make toast -

Take two slices of bread. Apply butter on both the slices. Pick one slice from it and apply green chutney on the other side of the bread. Spread the above made plantain filling on the second bread and close with the green chutney facing the filling. Now toast the breads using your toaster or on the pan.

Serve hot with tomato ketchup :)
