Spicy Cheese Toast

The cheese toast featured here is quite unconventional from the one you may be used to. It’s a family favourite and can be put together in a jiffy.

It’s a delicious way to start the day or even for a light lunch paired together with a green salad. I used cheddar cheese because of the strong flavour but you can use any cheese you want. You could also mix two different varieties of cheese.

I also used extra chilli powder but it depends on each individual’s palate. The same thing can be made with chopped green chillies and herbs instead of the red chilli powder.

This recipe makes around 12 slices of cheese toast.

PREP: 10 minutes COOK TIME: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • ½ tsp pepper powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil/Butter
  • Wholemeal bread slices
  • Extra cheese (optional)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 175 C.

Beat the eggs well with enough salt and pepper. Sift the flour with the baking powder. Add it to the eggs along with the chilli powder and turmeric powder. Mix well and fold in the grated cheese.

Toast one side of the bread lightly with a little oil or butter. Spoon the cheese mixture on the other side of the bread, spreading it carefully to the edges. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until it puffs up and the edges are lightly toasted. If you wish, you can sprinkle extra cheese on top and grill for a few minutes until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
