Mumbai Style Open Masala Toast

The kids and the fam had a Mumbai style open toast/toasts for breakfast this morning while the hubs and I reminisced about our dates back in the day when street food and chaat played a pivotal part in our courtship.

Normally a Bombay masala toast is a potato filling stuffed toastie sandwich served warm with grated cheese, chutneys and sev on top. At home however, I put my own spin to it and serve ours as an open multigrain toast with a pan fried smashed potato patty on top.

It’s been quite the while since I made these. These are very easy to make though it takes a wee bit of prep, which if done the night before makes the whole process easier. 

 

What you will need:

For the Potato patty

  • Boiled potatoes (boil them the night prior)
  • Black salt & regular salt (just a bit/according to taste)
  • Roasted cumin powder (jeera powder)
  • Finely chopped green chillies
  • Finely chopped corianderLime juice
  • Dry mango powder
  • Grated ginger
  • A couple of slices of bread for binding
  • Rice flower for dusting the patties in (dust the patties in the rice flour before placing on the pan)

For the toast

  • Multigrain bread
  • Fine/ Bareek Sev
  • Chopped coriander
  • Chaat masala
  • Date chutney (optional)
  • Green chili chutney (optional)

How to:

  • Mix well and knead all the ingredients for the potato patty and form medium sized diskettes.
  • Shallow fry over a pan until golden brown on either side.
  • Keep warm buttered toast ready
  • Place the patty on top of the toast and press to smash a wee bit such that it flattens out over the toast slice.
  • Top off with chutneys or ketchup and sprinkle a generous amount of sev or even grated cheese.
  • Season with a bit of chaat masala on top and a garnish with finely chopped coriander.

Thank you for reading. I hope you like the Mumbai toast as much as we do!
