This Spicy Indian Masala Garlic Bread is a favourite in our house. My family is from India and I was born in Canada, so I am always looking for twists on recipes that my parents and in-laws will enjoy. I make this bread on those cold damp days where all we crave is a hot cup of tea and a quick spicy snack. The fresh coriander that I add at the end not only looks good but it adds great flavour. Yum!
|4||slices Villaggio Sesame Thick Sliced Italian Style White Bread|
|2 tbsp||garlic butter|
|3||thin slices of fresh ginger, finely chopped (or to taste)|
|1/2||small green chili, seeded and finely chopped|
|1/2 tsp||garam masala|
|1/4 tsp||red chili powder (or to taste)|
|1/2 cup||finely chopped mozzarella cheese|
|1/4 cup||chopped fresh coriander|
Spread each piece of bread with garlic butter on one side and place on a cookie sheet (or toaster oven pan if using the toaster oven).
In a frying pan set on medium high heat, heat oil and add onions, ginger, green chili and sauté, mixing frequently to avoid burning, until the onions are soft and caramelized, about 4-5 minutes. Add garam masala, salt, red chili powder. If you don’t enjoy spicy food, go light on the red chili powder or do not use it. Mix well and taste to see if seasonings need to be adjusted.
Evenly divide the cooked onion mixture among the four slices of bread. Top evenly with the cheese and half of the coriander, reserving the balance of it.
Place in oven at 350 degrees for approximately 5 minutes. As oven temperatures vary, you may need to cook it for a long or shorter period of time. Cook until the bread starts to get browned and crispy and the cheese has melted. Remove from oven and garnish with remaining coriander. Serve with a hot cup of tea or Indian chai (milky tea with spices) and enjoy!
The perfect after work snack!
