Ah! the last 10 days or so has been taxing both physically and emotionally and very slowly everything is getting back to normal. This toast is something that I made for my BIL from the left over Rajma Masala
as the Doctors have advised to include lots of Oats
and for a person who is mostly used to eating rice all 3 times of the day, making these changes to his diet is proving to be very difficult.
He did not feel content at all and said he kept feeling hungry all the time even after eating. Slowly and steadily he is making progress and I had to come up with a lots of ideas using oats to give him as the Doc is so against him having 3 meals a day and instead have advised to feed him small portions every 2 hours.
This toast was so handy, simple and very easy that can be made in a jiffy. The toast that you see here is a kids version which they loved when I packed them for their school break time. You can also try this with this version of Channa
as I did.
Measure and dry roast the oats.
Pulse the rajma masala with roasted oats together.
The mixture will thicken. Apply on the bread slice
Toast the bread on both sides and serve.

1. Heat a pan and dry roast oats for 2 minutes over low flame till you get a nice aroma. Keep aside.
3. Add the roasted oats, cheese spread & chaat masala powder (if using) and pulse again for 2-3 times so that everything comes together.
4. Spread this paste on one side of a bread slice.
5. Heat a girdle / tawa and grease with 1/8 tsp of oil and place the paste applied skin facing the pan to cook. Drizzle 1/8 tsp oil around and let it cook till well browned.
6. Flip over and cook till the other side gets toasted as well. Remove onto a plate.
- For a more healthier version use either brown or multigrain bread.
- Using flavored cheese spread will add more flavor to the toast. Avoid if you count calories.
- For the kids use butter to cook instead of oil.
- If you want a tangy taste but do not happen to have chaat masala powder, use 1/2 tsp of lemon juice. while pulsing.
