Quick Bite : Indian Bruschetta

I baked this partly whole wheat bread with flaxseeds this week. The only problem with baking your own bread is you can't stop eating it. The possible upside is that you can slice your bread as thin as you want to :) I can almost see all those of you who bake your own bread nod your heads solemnly.

Quick Bite : Indian Bruschetta

I usually try and avoid starting my day with bread, but when it's homemade, you are looking for every possible excuse. So this is what I had for breakfast today - thinly sliced bread, toasted on a low heat on the tava, rubbed with a clove of garlic and topped with a simple paneer mixture.

This breakfast ticks all the boxes - good carbs, protein, veggies, fibre. Yay!

    Ingredients

    Wholegrain bread slices
    2
    Garlic, peeled
    1 clove
    Olive oil
    1 tsp
    Finely chopped onions
    1 tbsp
    Small tomato, deseeded and finely chopped
    1
    Finely chopped coriander
    1 tbsp
    Paneer, cut into small cubes
    1/4 cup
    Salt
    1/4 tsp
    Red chilli powder
    Pinch

    Steps

    1. On a skillet or in the toaster, toast the bread till golden and crisp.
    2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small wok and saute the onions till translucent (~2 mins). Add the tomatoes, coriander and saute for another minute. Don't fry the tomatoes to a mush.
    3. Add the paneer, salt, red chilli powder and stir gently till seasoned through. Remove from heat and keep aside.
    4. Rub the clove of garlic all over the toasted slices of bread(one side).
    5. Divide the paneer mixture equally between the two (or three, depending on size of bread) slices.
    6. Eat immediately.

    This makes for a wholesome breakfast or good for lunch too, when paired with a soup.
