Vegetable Cheese Toast

This recipe was inspired by Nupur's (of One Hot Stove) Cheese Toast Recipe. I came home after an evening of shopping and had to think of something quick to finish the bread that was going to expire in two days and without too many ingredients and I thought of this. I changed the way the veggies were made although the basic idea is the same as Nupur's recipe. It is a really quick and easy snack or meal when you have bread on your hand and some frozen veggies.


  1. Potatoes - 2 small cut into small cubes
  2. Frozen or fresh mixed vegetables
  3. Kitchen king masala - 1 tsp
  4. Garam masala - 1/2 tsps
  5. Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
  6. Curry leaves - 5
  7. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  8. Jeera - 1/2 tsp
  9. Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
  10. Salt
  11. Oil - 1 tsp
  12. Whole wheat bread slices - 8
  13. Mozzarella or any low fat cheese - 1 cup grated
  14. Red chilli flakes
  15. Dried oregano
  16. Tomato ketchup

  1. Heat oil in a pan and add jeera, mustard, turmeric, curry leaves and let the mustard seeds sputter.
  2. Add the potato cubes and let them turn a little brown at the edges.
  3. Now add the frozen vegetables, kitchen king masala, chilliw powder, garam masala, salt and about a half cup of water and steam it all until it is well blended and well done.
  4. Toast slices of bread until well done. Apply a layer of ketchup and then a layer of the cooked veggies.
  5. Top with some cheese and red chilli flakes and oregano and broil it until the cheese melts. Serve hot with ketchup or any chutney and enjoy!
