Here is a simple recipe to make crispy potato bread toast. The masala is made from boiled and mashed potatoes, tempered by Indian spices, a delightful recipe for breakfast or kid's lunch box. It is very easy to make, specially if you have leftover dry potato curry or aloo-gobi. I modified little according to my taste. Tryout and enjoy this delicious bread toast on your breakfast palate.

8 pcs of Brown Bread / Whole Wheat Bread Slices
3 Medium Potatoes (peeled and parboiled)
1/3 Cup Hot & Sweet Tomato Sauce
1 tbsp Roasted Sesame Seeds
3/4 tsp Grated Ginger
1 tsp Finely chopped Green Chillies (according to taste)
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder (according to taste)
1 tsp Roasted Cumin Seeds (powdered)
1 tsp Roasted Coriander Seeds (powdered)
1/2 tsp Dried Mango Powder (amchur)
1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
4 tbsps Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves / Cilantro
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
Salt to taste
4 tbsps Butter

In a large bowl, mash potatoes nicely by using your hands.

Add grated ginger, green chillies, red chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, dried mango powder, lemon juice, coriander leaves, garam masala and salt in it.

Mix everything thoroughly. Keep it aside.

Cut each bread slice diagonally and make two equal pieces. Follow the same for rest of the bread slices. Set aside.

Put little tomato sauce on each bread slice and spread it nicely.

Add potato mixture on it and try to spread it out evenly on the bread slices.

Sprinkle little sesame seeds on the top of bread slices.

Now we have to roast all those bread pieces. Heat a non-stick tawa/griddle. Add 1/4 tsp butter on the griddle and immediately place a bread piece on it. Keep potato spread side on the top. Allow it for 2 minutes on medium heat to make roasted crust on that side.

Now add 1/4 tsp butter on the top of potato spread and flip it over gently to roast otherside. Allow it for 2 minutes on medium heat to roast it properly.

Take out from the griddle when they are golden and crispy from both sides.

Serve immediately with chutney or ketchup.

'Nan Khatai' is nothing but eggless cookie, very famous in India and Pakistan. Cute looking short bread cookies are melt-in-mouth. They are very rich, crispy and buttery. These nan khatais are absolute delight with a cup of piping hot tea or coffee. The cookies are really simple, easy to bake and perfect in taste. So lets get started....

1 Cup All Purpose Flour / Wheat Flour
2 tbsps Corn Starch (optional)
1/2 Cup / 115 gm Unsalted Butter, at room temperature (or clarified butter)
1/2 Cup Confectioners Sugar (or powdered sugar)
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Cardamom Powder
1/8 tsp Salt
Few Almonds & Pistachios, chopped (for garnishing)


Mix confectioners sugar with butter.

Mix butter and sugar with a spoon, until light and fluffy. It takes approximately 1&1/2 minutes.

Sieve all purpose flour with baking soda. Mix salt in it. Now pour flour, salt and baking soda into the butter-sugar mixture.

Add 1/2 tsp cardamom powder in it.

Beat it again till it incorporated well. First the mixture would resemble bread crumbs.

Slowly knead it in a smooth dough.

Make small gooseberry sized balls (I made 24 nos.) and make sure balls don't have any crack on their outer surface. Place the balls on a alluminium foil lined tray with space of 2" apart. Put some horizontal mark on each ball with the tip of your knife.
Press them down with pistachios and almonds slices on the top and flatten them very slightly.

Preheat oven to 170 C / 325 F for 10 minutes. Place the baking tray at the center of the oven. Bake for 18 minutes. Remove it from the oven, let it cool down for 5 minutes on the cookie tray.

Now remove them on a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

Then store them in air-tight container.

Serve it with a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy it anytime!!!
