Chat on Toast

On any ordinary evening, dinner can be a solemn affair or a dynamo, depending on what is on the table. This particular evening I was looking to satisfy my sweet and sour taste buds without taking much effort. Checked the fridge and found some chutneys lying idle on the shelf. Label on the bread said expires tomorrow. And this way everything fell in place for “Chat on Toast

Wheat bread -  4 slices
Butter – as desired
Boiled and mashed potatoes – 2 medium
Ginger garlic paste – half tsp
Green, sweet and garlic chutneys – as tolerated
Garam masala – half tsp
Oil – 1 tsp
Mustard seeds – half tsp
Cilantro finely chopped – half a cup
Onion chopped finely – half a cup          
Tomato chopped finely – half a cup
Sev – half a cup

Heat oil and mustard seeds in a small pan. Add ginger garlic paste and cilantro as the seeds start to crackle. Stir and add garam masala. Turn the heat off and mix the contents of the pan with the boiled and mashed potatoes. Add salt and mix further. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Toast the bread in butter until brown and crispy. Spread the potato mixture evenly on the bread. Add the chutneys, onion and tomato. Garnish with sev and it is ready to devour. Till then, food and more food…
