Chilli Cheese Toast Ingredients

  • Bread – Feel free to use any kind of bread like white milk bread, brown bread, whole wheat bread, or sourdough bread.
  • Cheese – I like to use shredded Mozzarella cheese. You can use any cheese you like, Amul Processed cheese, Pepper Jack, or Cheddar cheese all of these tastes delicious. Vegans can use vegan cheese.
  • Veggies – I have used bell peppers, tomato, green chilies, and herbs such as coriander leaves. You can also substitute green chilies with Jalapeno.
  • Ketchup: I use little bit ketch up into this so it gives the flavor and hold the binding.
  • Garlic – Adding garlic is optional. However, freshly minced garlic gives the best flavor.
  • Seasoning – I used Oregano, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. You may also add red chili flakes for extra heat.
  • Butter – Use soft unsalted butter for toasting the bread. Vegans can use olive oil or any vegan butter.

How to Make Veg Chilli Cheese Toast Tawa

Prep Veggies – Finely chop/dice the vegetables and herbs.

Prepare cheese mixture – Combine the cheese, vegetables, and spices in a mixing bowl. Keep aside.

Cut the Bread loaf in medium size.

Toast Bread – Toast the bread with butter on one side only. I toast in Oven at 360 degree Fahrenheit. In air fry use the same temprature.

Top bread slices: Spread chili cheese mixture on the toasted bread side.

Toast on Stovetop Tawa: Heat the iron Tawa on medium-low heat. Spread some butter and place the bread slice. Cover the glass lid and cook on the low flame until the bread is toasted well and the cheese has melted (It takes 4-5 minutes)

Toast in oven: Preheat the oven at 360 degree Fahrenheit. Toast this toasts until the cheese melts. About 5 to 7 minutes.

Chili Cheese Toast on Oven

If you are making these delicious Chilli toast on Oven then Pre-heat the oven to about 360°F (180°C) for 5 minutes. Place all the bread in a baking tray and bake for about 5 minutes at 360°F (180°C).

Keep an eye on toast while they are getting cooked. When the cheese melts and starts to brown slightly on top, turn off the oven and take the vegetable chili cheese toast and place them on a serving plate.

Chili Cheese Toast in Air Fryer

Preheat the air fryer to 330°F (165°C). Place the bread slice in the air fryer basket and cook at 330°F for 5-6 minutes, until the cheese melts and slightly browns on top. Repeat with other slices.

How to Serve Chili Cheese Toast

  • As a snack – With Tea or Coffee. Or Milkshake
  • With your favorite Soup or Salad – It makes a perfect meal when you pair it with your favorite Soup OR Salad.

Tips & Variations

  1. Ensure to cover the bread toast with a glass lid while cooking, this helps the cheese to melt easily.
  2. Make ahead: Chili cheese mixture can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a day.
  3. Veggies: You can add vegetables of your choice, like regular or spring onion, olives, sweet corn kernels, and herbs such as parsley or chives.
  4. Cheese: You can use cheese as per your choice. I prefer using mozzarella, cheddar, or a mix of both. I also like to use Amul processed cheese for this recipe.
  5. Toastie: The chilli cheese toast can also be made into a sandwich if you prefer. Just place a slice of bread on top, apply some butter and grill it in a sandwich maker or toast the sandwich on the Tawa/Skillet.
