Truly unique, this Yellow Moong Toast is sure to become a hot favourite with anybody who tastes it. Bread is topped with a lip-smacking mixture of mashed potatoes and moong dal paste spiced up with myriad peppy ingredients, and deep-fried in oil till really crisp and golden brown in colour. This appetizing snack has a very pleasing texture that is thoroughly crisp outside and slightly spongy inside. Serve it with tongue-tickling accompaniments like Tabasco sauce and tomato ketchup.


Yellow moong dal 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (split yellow gram, soaked for 30 minutes and drained)
Cooked mashed potatoes 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Cornflour 2 Tablespoon
Chopped coriander 1 Tablespoon (dhania)
Chopped garlic 1 Teaspoon (lehsun)
Soy sauce 1/2 Teaspoon
Sugar 1 Teaspoon
Green chilli paste 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Freshly ground black pepper To Taste (kalimirch)
Bread slices 12
Oil 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (For deep frying)



Combine the drained moong dal along with approx. 2 tbsp of water and blend in a mixer to a coarse paste. 

Transfer the mixture into a bowl, add the potatoes, cornflour, coriander, garlic, soya sauce, sugar, green chilli paste, salt and pepper and mix well. 

Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. 

Place a bread slice on a flat surface and spread a portion of the mixture evenly over it.

Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and slide the toast in it with the topping side facing downwards and deep-fry the toast on a medium flame till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides. 

Repeat steps 4 and 5 to make 11 more toasts. 


Cut each toast diagonally into 2 and serve immediately with tobacco sauce or tomato ketchup.
