For the third day of Besan recipes, here is an easy to make delicious snack for kids. As a kid I used to love bread. Amma used to make amazing sandwiches and cutlets and I even loved the simple butter bread combo a lot. And then when I learnt baking breads, I started making so many dishes with breads and Sruti got acquainted to it. Even she is a crazy bread lover, so I can make any snack with bread without any doubt whether kiddo would like it or not. As I have given a break to baking breads, I bought homw a pack of sandwich bread just to make these masala toasts. And they went into the fridge and stayed there for a very long time as I didn’t feel like making them!
My daughter would ask daily and I would promise her that it would get ready tomorrow and then the next day the same thing continued. This went on for nearly four or five days and then when I had a visit from PJ, one of the amazing blogger friends from the BM family, I knew I had to make the toasts. I prepared the batter, made a test batch of two slices and got ready to take photos and by that time she arrived with her kids. That is it, we started chatting and it went on and on and I completely forgot to take photos. Even she has had her lunch just then and she couldn’t have the toasts. After a while when she saw what I made, she asked me to serve it for the kiddos. And I got back a clean plate. What more can I say! I was really happy that the toast was good. I made it again next day for Sruti and I managed to click a few snaps before serving. She was so happy about the toasts and said that they taste wonderful. So when I make bread next time, I am definitely trying this again.
