A tasty aloo masala packed between slices of bread lined with tongue-tickling chutney, the Masala Toast is surely one sumptuous snack that will keep you going for an hour or two. The unique stove and toaster used to make this Masala Toast is a typical trademark of street-side food. However, in this recipe we show you how you can recreate the magic using the utensils in your own kitchen. Also, mind not the prodigal portions of butter used to ensure even grilling of the toast! Forget the calories and relish this piping hot, topped with crunchy sev.
