Vegetable Masala Toast is a spicy open toast from the Bangalore Iyengar Bakery Style. This toast has a spicy topping on a crisp toasted bread slice.
I don't remember when I read about this online, however, looks like this Bangalore Iyengar Bakery is popular for all sorts of baked and other snacks that the whole internet is raving about them.
I haven't personally tasted this open toast from the said bakery. However, going by the different sites that talk about this toast, it surely seems to be very popular. There are so many inspired dishes from this Bakery that it surely makes me want to visit that place sometime.
We haven't been to Bangalore in recent times. We used to visit during my growing up years. Later when the city developed beyond recognition, we never went. The last time we visited, we had taken Konda with us, while the boys were with their grandparents. We were able to spend only two days and it wasn't enough to go through the whole city.
This Vegetable Masala Toast is a crispy toast topped with spicy masala curry. The vegetable masala is very easy to make and this is an ideal breakfast to make when you are out of ideas on what to make.
We are doing BM#117, week 4 where I will be sharing my next three alphabets in the AtoZ Indian Breakfast dishes V, W, and X.
