If the name makes you believe that this is a simple toast of bread with cheese and chilli flakes, you are in for a huge surprise. On Mumbais streets, Cheese Chilli Toast is an elaborate treat, of chutney-coated bread topped with a succulent mixture of cheese, capsicum and green chillies. Toasted with a brushing of butter, the Cheese Chilli Toast is a snack that will perk you up instantly with its vibrant flavour and wonderful texture. Serve it hot and fresh with tomato ketchup and green chutney.


Grated processed cheese 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Finely chopped green chillies 1 1/2 Tablespoon
Finely chopped capsicum 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Salt To Taste
Bread slices 8
Butter 4 Teaspoon (for brushing)
Butter 2 Tablespoon (For greasing)
Green chutney 8 Teaspoon



Combine cheese, capsicum, green chillies and salt in a deep bowl and mix well. 

Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Keep aside. 

Spread ½ tsp of butter on each bread slice evenly and keep aside. 

Place 2 bread slices on a clean, dry surface with the buttered side facing upwards. 

Spread 1 tsp of green chutney on each of the bread slices. 

Spread a portion of the mixture evenly on 1 bread slice and cover with another bread slice with 1 buttered-chutney side facing downwards and press it tightly. 

Spread a little butter evenly on the bread slices.

Grease a sandwich toaster on both the sides using butter and pre-heat for a minute. 

Place the sandwich in the sandwich toaster and cook on a medium flame, till it turns brown and crisp from both the sides. 

Cut into 4 equal pieces, place it on a plate and apply a little butter evenly over it.

Repeat steps 4 to 10 to make 3 more toasts. 


Serve immediately with tomato ketchup and green chutney.

Handy Tip: At step 9, keep turning the sandwich toaster and checking at regular intervals to avoid the toast from getting burnt.
