Bread Bhel

Event: Blogging marathon #40
Theme: Evening snacks

This low fat bread bhel is a quick, easy and tasty snack for lazy evenings. I used store bought seasoned croutons, sev and sweet chutney and so the chaat was ready in about 5 minutes.

Ingredients:
8 bread slices or about 2 cups bread croutons
1 big sized tomato
1 big sized onion
1/2 cup cilantro
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste
2 - 3 tbsp green chutney
2 - 3 tbsp sweet date-tamarind chutney
1/2 cup sev
Method:
* If preparing croutons from scratch, remove the crusts of bread and cut the slices into cubes. Toast the bread cubes in oil / ghee until golden brown in a saute pan and drain them on absorbent towels. Or toast them in an oven and keep them aside.
* Chop onion, tomato and cilantro finely.
* Combine onion, tomato, cilantro, salt, lemon juice, green chutney and sweet chutney in a bowl. Just before serving, add croutons and sev to the bowl. Mix well and serve immediately. 
* Puffed rice and pomegranate seeds can also be added to the mix.

Very interesting bhel with bread. I usually end up with odds and ends of homemade bread slices and this will be the best way to enjoy them. Will try this recipe some time.
