Chili Cheese Toast | Bread Toast | Toast Recipe

Chili Cheese toast, an quick and easy to make make bread toast that you can serve this as breakfast or as snack in the evening. I have seen lot of recipe for chili cheese toast using chopped chili and i too tried that way,but i'm not big fan of those toast as i couldn't bear the hotness of chilies while biting. I need whole glass of water to reduce the heat in my mouth even if i accidentally bite little bit of chilies in any dishes.So mostly i tried to avoid adding chopped chilies in my  dishes and even if i have added for flavor, cautiously remove them before having.
This recipe for chili cheese toast recipe is from the book "Love,Loss and What we ate" by Padma Lakshmi. I love the idea of grinding the chili and use as spread instead of adding chopped chili,that way you can reduce the hotness as per your like. But I find it difficult to grind chili alone in my mixie jar, so added little amount of coriander leaves, that's my little addition to the original recipe. But if you have hand motor & pestle, then omit the coriander leaves and make the chili paste in it. 

Chili Cheese Toast

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 10 minsServes : 1 or 2 
Recipe Category: Toast | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Bread - 4 slices
Chili - 3
Mozzarella Cheese - 1/4 to 1/3 cup
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Capsicum(chopped) - 1/4 cup
Salt - to taste
Coriander leaves(chopped) - 2 tsp
Butter - to toast

In a blender/mixie jar, add chilies, lemon juice and salt.And finally add the coriander leaves and grind into coarse mixture. Keep all the other ingredients ready for toast.Take a bread slice, spread the chili mixture evenly and then add the capsicum and cheese as needed.Heat a pan with butter and keep the flame in low for entire cooking, place the bread slice and cover it with lid.Toast the bread till the cheese starts to melt, remove from the plan and cut diagonally into two and it's ready to serve.Serve warm along with your favorite juice.
  • Keep the flame in low while toasting the bread, otherwise the bottom will get burnt before the cheese melts.
  • Cover the pan with lid helps to melt the cheese quickly.
  • You can use any kind of cheese you like.
  • I have used green and red capsicum,you can use any color you like.
  • Capsicum is optional, you can skip it.
