Semolina and Almond Toast !

You do get fed up eating same plain toast with maybe jam, peanut butter or cheese ...to tell you the truth, I don't really like cheese on toast much..we hardly use jam in our house, if I buy one bottle, using it for one or two days is OK, then it gets back into the cupboard far behind where no one can see it...then, when I finally bother to look at the back of the cupboard, I see the expiry date..so into the bin it goes!..it's the same story with peanut butter but we might eat that once a week...
So basically I eat my plain toast with orange juice and that's it...most of the time I do run out of ideas for breakfast or Brunch... Few weeks back while I was blog hopping, I came a cross this recipe here...and asap I wanted to make it...I didn't followed the exact recipe, made few changes according to our family taste...I added ground almonds to make it more healthier for my kids, coz many times they don't want to eat their almonds, so this way I included in the batter...can tell you that everyone was pleasingly asking for more....


You will need:-
  • Few bread slices of your choice(I used healthiest bread ever you can find in UK, Multi grain and Multi seeds)
  • 2 cups finely chopped vegetables like shredded carrots, green, yellow, orange capsicum, Onion and tomato
  • 2-3 green chillies(adjust according to your liking)
  • handful of finely chopped coriander
  • 2 cups semolina
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup grounded almonds
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Healthy Margarine

Method:-
First roast the semolina on a slow heat,  in a heavy bottom pan without any fat....about 4-5 minutes.(Original recipe it doesn't say this) but I did...Now mix everything except Bread and margarine...If mixture gets too thick add some water, and make as a thick spreadable batter. Now spread margarine on all the breads on both side and spread the semolina batter on one side.  Heat the griddle or flat non stick pan, when is hot place the slice of bread, Batter side has to on top.  Cover the griddle and cook the bread slice for a minute or so..Turn the bread slice and cook on the other side until batter cooks till light brown...Ready to serve..

Enjoy!
