Spicy Vegetable toast

vegetable Toast - breakfast, snack, vegetarian, kids school lunch box, kids tiffin boxSpicy vegetable Toast – These spicy vegetable Toasts are perfect appetizers for kids parties as these are bite sized and can be made in any desired fun shapes. These are also very nutritious as these have lots of veggies. Best part about this recipe is you can make them ahead of time and then heat them in a non stick pan just before serving.

You can sprinkle cheese and oregano and bake the slices rather than shallow frying to get a healthy bread pizza.

I ate these for the first time at my aunt’s (mausi) house and it was love at first bite. She used to make these with potato stuffing same as used in parathas (Indian flatbread) and that is how I used to make it for some years. One day my son was crying for Pizza and I was not in a mood to bake it. So I added all the Pizza toppings to potato mixture and my kids loved it.  Since then I have been experimenting with this recipe always adding some new vegetable to the recipe and results have always been great.

Take a bread slice and cut it in the desired shape. You can cut it round, rectangular or square. I have cut 4 square pieces out of 1 slice of bread.
Spread mixture on both sides of the bread. Heat a non stick pan or griddle and grease it lightly with oil.

Cook on both sides till golden brown just like pancakes using a little oil. Repeat with all the remaining slices of bread.
Serve hot with chutney or ketchup.

    • Nidhi says:

      Hello, Mrs. Romila. Thanks for your kind words 🙂
      If your child does not like spices you can easily remove chilies from the recipe. It will affect the taste a little but as your kid is not fond of spices it will not affect them. you can add capsicum, corn etc. to make it tastier.

    Hi Nidhi,
    All the recipies are very interesting, I have a doubt in making spicy vegetable toast,
    should i spread the vegetable mixture on top of the bread slice or I should arrange like how we make for sandwich, I am very new to this yummy fancy foods and have just started experimenting.Kindly help me…pics look vry tempting.

    • Nidhi says:

      Thanks Lakshmi
      vegetable mixture will be spread on both sides of bread.
      In sandwiches vegetable mixture is in center and bread on both sides. Here bread will be in center and vegetable mixture on both sides.
      Do let me know if you have any other doubt 🙂

  8. Shalini says:

    Dear Nidhi,
    I tried the recipe today. For some reason the potato mixture was a bit bitter. Any idea what could have caused it? too much salt or ginger? i am not too much of a cook 🙁

    • Nidhi says:

      HI Shalini. can’t understand any reason for mixture turning bitter. Too much ginger or may be potatoes were stale could be the reason.

  9. Aditi says:

    Hi Nidhi ,
    Liked your dish and it is very similar to one I make it so thought to share with you the same… Instead of potatoes we use Semolina ( sooji in Hindi) , mix semolina with little yogurt and then add the same mixture of capsicum tomatoes green chilli ginger salt. Mix it well and then put it on the bread but just on one side and shallow fry it.

    Will try your recipe … Thanks

    • Nidhi says:

      Hi Aditi. I also make semolina toast. they are yum. Do try this recipe also. I hope your family will love it 🙂

    Aloo Parathas (Parantha) are a staple dish in many Indian households. Warm flatbread stuffed with a spicy potato mixture, Aloo Parathas can be enjoyed with yogurt, pickle or with any curry. The chapatti and vegetable “all in one” design of Aloo Parathas make them a great meal on the go all by themselves. Pack some in the kids’ lunchboxes or for you “soccer Moms”, take some in the car with you for a quick snack in between activities. Try this simple and healthy recipe!

      • Paula says:

        Can I substitute with olive or cnkoiog oil? I tried makin This last time and it came out really hard, I duunnoo what I did wrongThank you very much for your help and for aall these great recipes.

        • Nidhi says:

          I have used regular cooking oil. With potato mixture on both sides the toast should not be hard. may be your pan was too hot. after putting them on pan for 1 minute turn the flame on medium.

  24. Swapna says:

    It looks yum and is a great idea for lunch too. If you don’t mind me asking, where did you buy the red plate with white border. It looks gorgeous. 🙂

    • Nidhi says:

      Thanks Swapna. Got The plate from a craft bazaar at jkk in jaipur. I wanted to buy a set of 6 but there was only one left. bought it anyway as i really loved its pattern.
