Chilli Cheese Toast

GOSH! Don’t remember when was the last time I logged into my blog! Last 10 days have been so hectic. What when you have every possible thing turning up, keeping you extremely busy, except the maid. With the visiting guests...extra work load in office and in the middle of all this the Maid doesn’t turn up for one entire week, without any notice :(

Not as if I kept busy 24 hours a day...In whatever little time I got, I have been reading ‘The Three Mistakes of my Life’ by Chetan Bhagat.

The maid turned up yesterday, so I am much more relaxed now. Oh what if she doesn’t end up again today (Its already 11:30 am and she isn’t in as yet!)

But in those last 10 days I would be looking for quick easy to make snacks after returning from work...that would last me till I could fix the dinner. One of these instantly made snack is Chilli Cheese Sandwich.

This sandwich doesn’t call for any preparation time, is done instantly... and leaves a nice chilly taste. This must be a Chennai specialty. I hadn’t tasted this anywhere before...you can find it almost everywhere here. Makes for a perfect quick snack.

Ingredients:
4 Slices of Sandwich Bread
2 Slices of Cheddar Cheese
2 Green Chillies chopped

The pic is self explanatory. I folded the cheese slice at the edges to prevent it from flowing out when it melts.

Chilli Cheese toast preperation
Cover this with another slice. Similarly set other sandwich as well.
Heat the griller and place the sandwiches in.

Best enjoyed with some Potato Chips and Tomato ketchup.


Talking of it...My next post is going to be another quick snack.

Do you wanna take a guess at what this is? or what ingredients this calls for?

Hi Nidhi, lovely quick snack. I love cheese, and the idea of using chillies to spice it up has never occured to me before. Love your pics. I'll make wild guess, it looks like Idli to me, though it might be spiced up with yogurt/butter, coriander, ginger?, mustard seeds etc. Waiting for your next post!

Nidhi- Long ago, when I worked in Bombay, some of us friends would go, after the late-night shift, to the only open restaurant which happened to be in an expensive hotel. The only thing on the menu we could afford was chilli cheese toast and we'd share one between about six of us :) Great times. Thanks for bringing back a lovely memory.

Wow that was quick-fix snack on busy work day.
Are you going to make some fried pakodas or vadas with that batter??

Vani said...
