Snack time is quite a difficult one! Especially when you hate deep frying and your partner hates potatoes… Most of the snack recipes that i get when i google are either deep fried or has potatoes in them.. So whenever i fall upon something which has neither of both, i instantly bookmark it.. Even though most of the days are either Tea and Rusk (Wow! Heaven made couple!) or Bread and Jam, my husband mostly loves his tea with something savoury.. His instant favorite is my dhokla which i make at least once a week..
He is also not a fan of brown bread.. If i don’t give him my “pleaseeee” look , he always buys milk bread.. So my die hard effort is to make him a fan of it so that i don’t have to give him the look every time.. This snack has made him find brown bread is also good if not a fan (As they say, half the battle won!).. Being a typical south Indian fan that we both are, we just loved this onion uthappam on bread (Yummy!)..
It is a really tasty snack which will take maximum 15 mins of your time and will not leave you guilty on the diet part..You can also have this as a breakfast for a change from the usual toast as this is quite filling too..
Do try this recipe and enjoy the evening with your loved ones!
Health Benefits of Brown Bread:Made from whole wheat grains, the bread retains all the essential nutrients along with the healthy fiber (which the white bread lacks!).. But it is important to check if whole grain is an ingredient in it.. The fiber in it helps lower the bad cholesterol, keeps blood sugar at low levels and also Good for weight watchers as less calories than white ones..
I am also planning to prepare my own brown bread once i am confident in baking!
Adapted from: Sharmis Passions
4 slices of Brown Bread (Can try with multi grain breads too!)
1/2 Cup Semolina/Rava
2 Tbsp Instant Oats
1/2 Cup Yogurt/Curd
1 Medium Onion
3 Green Chillies
Coriander leaves to taste
Salt to taste
Oil for shallow frying
1. Take the semolina, onion, curd, green chillies, coriander leaves, salt in a bowl.. Mix together with little water and prepare a thick spreadable paste..
2.Add Oats to it and mix well..
3. Heat a frying pan and add few drops of oil.. Spread a spoonful of the paste on one side of the bread and place it on the pan…Make sure the flame is medium..
4.Spread the other side of the bread too with the paste..
5.After the under side is browned, flip the bread and fry the other side also..
6.Remove from flame and enjoy with chutney or ketchup!
Note: You can also prepare this snack with leftover dosa batter… Just skip the semolina and curd & continue with the rest of the steps.. This is a good way to give a twist to the dosa batter!
