You would never have imagined that simple bread can be transformed into such a tongue-tickling delight! Buttered bread is layered with raw mango pickle and topped with a yummy mixture of potatoes, green peas and spice powders. This is then tava-cooked till crisp, and served with a garnish of onions and chaat masala.

The Open Masala Toast is a peppy delight with the unique flavour of achaar. It can be served as an evening snack with tea, but it is so satiating that you can also have it for breakfast .
