Chilly Cheese Toast - Anytime Snack
"Chilly Cheese Toast" is one of my favorite any-time snack and also a very comforting snack...!!
The best Chilly Cheese Toast I've had was at "Lake View" on MG Road in Bangalore... but that was in the late 90s. A trip to MG Road with friends was incomplete without a visit to "India Coffee House" for the "Mutton cutlets" and "Lake view" restaurant for "Chilly Cheese Toast".
The memories of the lovely moments spent with my friends there is just unforgettable...!
Bread - 5 slices cut into triangluar halves
Green chillies - 2 - finely chopped or grated using a electric blender/chopper
Cheese - Mozarella or Cheddar (whichever you like) - grated - 1 cup
Oregano - 1 tbsp
Red chilly flakes - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Take a large bowl, add the grated cheese, green chilly, red chilly, oregano and salt as required and mix well.
Take a large baking tray, arrange the bread slices on to this tray and evenly top these slices with the grated cheese mixture.
Now toast these in a preheated oven (OTG) for 8-10 minutes till the cheese has melted and the slices have turned golden.
If you do not have an oven, you could keep these on a flat tawa/griddle and toast them on low heat till the cheese begins to melt.
