From the time I saw this recipe on Coffee's Spice Cafe, I fell in love with it. Its so simple and easy to whip up for breakfast, but feels like you made something special instead of the usual cereals or bagels etc. Her site has step-by-step instructions & pictures, so I'm not repeating them. The only change I made was to add a pinch of turmeric pwd. to give it a golden color and also I skip the chilli paste for my daughter's sake. Instead I serve it with a spicy ketchup or chutney for us and plain ketchup for her.
This Masala Toast goes to the MBP - Easy Breezy Breakfast event at Simple Indian Food.

I am updating this post to include how I make it, since I've been informed that the Spice Cafe link above no longer works. So here's how I make it:
4 - 5 slices of bread
1/2 cup rava/sooji
1/2 cup buttermilk or 1/4 cup yogurt + 1/4 cup water
pinch of turmeric pwd
salt to taste
chopped green chillies or red chilli pwd to taste
1/2 tsp ginger paste
handful of finely chopped onions
Mix all the ingredients from rava to cilantro. You can add upto 1/4 cup water to this mix depending on how much water your rava is absorbing.
Cut the bread slices into desired shapes and dip into the mix. Fry on a non-stick pan with few drops of oil until golden brown spots develop on both sides.
Serve hot with ketchup.
