From Your Kitchen To Mine #6

I decided to use bread in two different ways for The Iron Chef edition of Nupur's Blog Bites.

The first recipe, one for Malai Toast, is now a family favorite. It's something I've been making regularly since I first came across it on Richa's blog some 3 years back.

The only change I made here was to use yogurt with a splash of buttermilk instead of the malai mentioned in the original recipe. I also smear the batter on both sides of the bread slices and cook till it gets a nice crispy crust.

We love having this for breakfast over the weekends. It's something that's really simple and tasty and can be made at a moment's notice if you have the ingredients on hand. The recipe calls for ingredients that I always have in my kitchen. I cannot think of a better way to make use of a loaf of bread, leftover or otherwise.

The second recipe is from Kanchan's blog. Kanchan, very creatively transforms stale bread into this tasty snack in her recipe.

Here's how I made this-

I ran 5 slices of bread through the food chopper to get coarse crumbs. Next, I threw in a chopped onion, a few green chillies, a small bunch of coriander leaves, some salt and pepper, and pulsed the ingredients a couple of times. Then I added one beaten egg to the whole thing and mixed well. I added a little bit of flour too since the “dough” had become a little sticky at this point. This mixture of ingredients gave me 6 balls. I flattened these balls of the mixture as much as possible and cooked them till done.



Thanks for sharing your recipes, Richa and Kanchan!
