Chilly Bread

Chilly Bread (Breads with spicy onion tomato paste)

If few slices of bread are left untouched in our kitchen, then I will prepare this 
chilly bread within 20 minutes.  Back to my college days, I quickly gather some ingredients and prepare this quick lunch with a side salad. Even now, this chilly bread is a quick and tasty lunch for my son. This crispy chilly bread is flavoured with ginger garlic paste, onions, tomatoes and garamasala powder and served with few fresh onions. These chilly breads were made with sandwich bread slices. I have consistently used sandwich bread slices for this recipe because they are perfect when they are mixed with the onion tomato mixture. The other varieties of bread slices tend to change its cubical shapes after mixed. The bread slices toast in the pan and then tossed in a spicy onion tomato mixture. Besides the sliced onions and tomatoes that I use to flavour the breads, you can also add thinly sliced green capsicums and topped with fried cashew nuts.

Total time : 25 minutes
Serves : 3


  • 9 sandwich bread slices
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 green chilly
  • 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 3/4 tsp red chilly powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp garamasala powder
  • 1 tbsp spring onions leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • ghee or butter for toasting the bread slices
  • salt to taste
Cooking Directions

1. Thinly slice  the onions and  the tomatoes. Finely chop the green chillies.  

2. Apply some ghee or butter on each bread slices and toast on medium heat about  3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Toast all the bread slices evenly. 

3. Use a kitchen scissors or knife and cut all the bread slices into small cubes. 

4. Heat a wide pan or kadai and add 2 tbsp oil. Add the onions and green chillies and saute it for a few minutes.

5.  Next, add the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes off. 

6. Add the sliced tomatoes to the kadai and cook for about 3 minutes, until the tomatoes starting to soften. 

7. Next, add the turmeric powder, chilly powder and garamasala powder. Mix them well and season with required salt. 


8. Now gradually pour in the tomato sauce (you can also use tomato ketchup), stir it to combine well with the onion tomato mixture.

9. Now add the bread cubes to this mixture. At first it will seem that the bread cubes won't get incorporated into the onion, tomato mixture, but have some patience and mix them well.


10. If your bread cubes are really dry, add 1 tbsp ghee, just enough for all the bread cubes to be absorbed.
