Recipe for :

Indian Cheese Toast

Suvir SaranThis recipe comes from a web site which gives a first class insight into Indian Cooking, what it is about and how to create some of the recipes in your own home.

It is the web site of Suvir Saran, a native of New Delhi, India, who was raised on traditional Indian cooking. He is a passionate and inventive cooking teacher as well as a sort of unofficial ambassador of Indian culture; wherever he goes (in India, Europe and the United States) he finds himself teaching people - colleagues in classes and jobs, strangers in airports and on the street - to love the food and culture of his native country.

This recipe comes from Suvir and his co-writer, Stephanie Lyness, with whom he is writing a new cookery book. Stephanie Lyness is a very well respected food writer and editor in the US.


1 pound whole milk mozzarella cheese, coarsely grated
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tomato, cored, very finely chopped and then squeezed in your hand to eliminate most of the liquid
2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and finely diced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 heaping tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
10 slices whole wheat bread

  • Stir together all of the ingredients except the bread in a mixing bowl, mashing to make a fairly smooth mixture.
  • Spread the mixture on the bread slices and toast in a toaster oven on high until the cheese mixture has melted and is lightly browned and the bottoms of the bread slices are crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Serve hot.


This could also be made with English muffins or bagels. If people don’t have a toaster oven, they can cook the sandwiches under a broiler/grill; toast the bread first.
