Toast Sandwich

I am sorry for not posting regularly. Life's become a little busy these days. Also I am having some problems with blogger ever since I came back to India. Photos appear as html tags, still I go ahead and publish them as they appear normal in the blog.
Here's a simple and easy breakfast recipe that I learnt from my mil. It can be made ready in just a few minutes but mind you it tastes superb. I have added some grated cheese while taking this snap but the original recipe doesn't require cheese. Both ways it tastes great.


Onion - Finely chopped
Tomato - finely chopped
Coriander Leaves - finely chopped
Red Chilli Powder - as per taste
Turmeric powder - pinch
Grated Cheese - (optional)
Tomato Ketchup

Mix together onions, tomatoes, cilantro, salt, red chilli powder, turmeric pdr.
Take 2 slices of bread. Apply butter on one side of both slices. Take one slice and place some of the above mixture on the buttered side. Apply a small amount of ketchup on this mixture. Add some grated cheese if desired and cover with the other slice.
Heat a tava and fry it till golden brown using butter. Serve hot with additonal ketchup.

Note: Don't keep the onion-tomato mixture for too long after adding salt or else it leaves water. If this mixture has to be made in advance add salt just before making sandwiches.
