Hot Spicy Vermicelli Toast
My relatives from USA had come over for the summer holidays. They wanted to try out some spicy Indian dish, but were apprehensive about having food from street vendors. So, I decided to prepare something spicy at home itself. I prepared a fiery and nutritious Hot Spicy Vermicelli Toast for them to try out. Here is the recipe for it.
Vermicelli (sewai) is roasted first, followed by sautéing of chopped onion (pyaaz) and garlic (lahsan) on low heat. After a few minutes, tomatoes (tamatar), mushrooms, carrots (gajar) and other vegetables are added to this and stir-fried. Any vegetable can be used for the topping. These veggies are properly cooked and sprinkled with some spices, along with the addition of water which aids in cooking. These spices can be added according to taste. The mixture is brought to a boil, and vermicelli is added to it and cooked.
The bread piece is sliced from the centre to form two triangles, which are toasted in the oven. Some butter is applied onto it, and it is topped with the vermicelli mixture. This vermicelli toast is then cooked in the oven till it becomes crispy golden-brown. The oven should be pre-heated to the correct temperature beforehand. Hot Spicy Vermicelli Toast was very much enjoyed by my relatives along with some tomato ketchup.
