The weather is gloomy with little showers which makes me soooooo lazy all the day. Feel like munching all the time. Simple toasts and soups makes my work easy and comforting too. Both the toast which I am posting today is so yummy and we love it so much hope you all too. Both the Yogurt and Cilantro toast can be done with mild, medium or hot to according to your taste buds. The spreads Yogurt and Cilantro which I am posting today is a basic one for some sandwiches which I make. See my tips for interesting delicious sandwiches which I make using this spreads.



Yogurt - 1 cup
Ginger - 1/2 inch
Green chilli - 2
Curry leaves - 3 very finely chopped
Mustard for seasoning
Cilantro - for garnishing (optional)
Turmeric - a pinch
Bread - 4 slices


1. Tie the yogurt in the muslin or cheese cloth for 1 hr. So that the water drains out and you get thick yogurt which looks like soft cheese.
2. Add the Ginger + Green chilli paste, Season with mustard and curry leaves.
3. Add the turmeric, salt, and chopped cilantro leaves. Mix well so that it is well blended.
4. Check for taste. Now apply the spread on one side. And toast in the medium flame until golden brown on both the side by spray little oil.


Ingredients :

Cilantro - 1/4 bunch
Coconut - 1 tbsp
Garlic - 1 pod
Green chilli - 2
Star anise - Very little piece
Clove - 1
Cinnamon - very little piece
Bread - 4 slices

Method :

1. Grind all the above ingredients finely without adding water.
2. Apply on bread and toast until nice golden brown on both sides by adding little oil.


1. Using oil while toasting is optional if you are using non-stick pan.
2. You can have this bread with or without toasting, both tastes so good.
3.You can apply the spread both the sides too, its again according to our preference.
4. I prefer applying the spread on one side, And make crispy on other side.
5. It is important to keep the flame in medium low so that it will not get burned or you can do toast in the bread toaster or oven too.
6. Its optional to remove the crust, If you are serving for the party to make it look attractive I usually remove the crust.
7. Prepare the spread ahead of time so that you can have this for breakfast. It is best suited for lunch box too.


1. Apply the yogurt spread in the bread and you can stuff the veggies like Sliced boiled potato, raw sliced Carrots, Cucumber, Boiled sliced egg and make like a sandwich. For this you need not toast the bread everything is raw except the potato and egg.
2. Apply the cilantro paste in the bread and again you can have the sliced boiled potato, Raw carrot slice and even you can have beets too, sweet onion, sliced boiled egg, Cucumber.
3. You can use both the spread in the bread, apply one on each side and stuff with your favorite veggies and make sandwiches.

Happy making and Happy eating !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
