Iyengar bakery bread toast
 Iyengar Bakery’s masala vegetable bread toast also known as open sandwich is very popular in Bangalore. I have tasted this many times but never thought of sharing this simple and easy bread recipe here.You can call this as “Indian Bruschetta”, hehe. Yesterday I bought a pair of toast from the bakery and relished it with tea. I got tempted to make it at home. This morning I made it for Raksha and Sendhil’s lunch box. Yes, this sandwich tastes good even if it cools down. The spicy vegetable masala used here is a very simple one with onion,tomato and grated carrot. So no kid would say NO to this combo. I have made it as an open sandwich. You can even grill this sandwich recipe.I am sure it would taste great in all the ways. Last year I shared Iyengar bakery style benne biscuit recipe which is super hit in my blog. I am happy to share yet another Iyengar Bakery style recipe in my blog. I have made this sandwich with milk bread.You can also replace it with whole wheat bread.I hope you will try this recipe and like it. Lets see how to prepare this yummy and easy bread sandwich recipe.

  • Adding grated cabbage is optional. If you don’t want to add onions, you can use cabbage in place of it.
  • I used more carrot for my daughter’s sake. But in Iyengar bakery original recipe,they had used more onions than carrot. So change the quantity of ingredient as per your liking.
  • You can replace garam masala powder by chat masala powder.
