Crispy besan bread toast on tawa: A no-messy yet delicious 15 minutes breakfast recipe that is prepared with gram flour, bread slices and a few commonly available spices. It tastes very similar to egg omelet toast and can also be eaten as an evening tea-time snack.
I make this besan bread toast very often. It tastes best when served hot paired with tomato ketchup, schezwan sauce, and even coriander chutney.
To make this crispy besan bread toast on tawa I have used a non-stick tawa, brown bread slices, gram flour, a few spices, and water to make the batter. In addition to that, I have used oil to toast the bread. If you want a more rich taste, use ghee instead. I have not added any vegetables here. However, veggies like carrots and capsicum go very well. If you’d like to you can add 2 tbsp each finely chopped capsicum and grated carrots to this.
For a perfect besan toast, the consistency of the batter must be nicely thick flowing. You can see a thin crispy besan layer coated with the bread. This is what I am talking about. Let’s see how did I make this.
