Rava toast recipe
An open toast with semolina (Rava/ Sooji) made to a savory batter and toasted in low flame. I have not tasted this before, have seen a video once by chance otherwise it’s totally new to me. I love any dish prepared with rava/ sooji. So I was sure I will like this too. Recently my BIL asked me if I have this post in my blog, so thought of trying and making a post. Obviously I loved it so much, it turned out awesome. This can be a perfect quick and filling snack for kids returning from schools. Or even as breakfast in lazy sundays. I guess this can be called savory french toast or rock toast too. I found the recipe here for my reference.

I see a lot of updates from friends and family in Chennai about the non stop rain and flooding in most of the areas. Really worried about the people out there. Let’s hope and pray for the rain to stop. Stay safe and also help the needed where ever you can. Don’t hesitate to lend your helping hand even if it’s a small help.

Rava toast recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time 10 Mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins     Serves: 2


Semolina/ Rava/ Sooji – 1/2 cup

Bread slices – 4

Onion – 1/2, finely chopped

Finely chopped capsicum – 1/4 cup (or)

Grated carrot – 3 tbsp

Green chilli – 1, finely chopped

Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp

Curd/ Plain yogurt – 2 tbsp

Coriander leaves (Finely chopped) – 2 tbsp

Salt – As needed

Oil/ ghee/ butter – As needed


  1. Mix all the ingredients except bread and oil in a mixing bowl. Use water/ milk or cream to make a thick batter.
  2. 1-mix
  3. Spread the batter over one side of the bread slice as a thick layer. Heat tawa / pan and drizzle with oil/ ghee or some butter. Put the batter applied side to the tawa.
  4. 2-toast
  5. Cook in low or medium flame until golden crust is formed. Flip and toast until crisp.
  6. 3-done


    • I added colour capsicum as I had it in stock and wanted to use it up. It gave a nice flavour. You an use simply grated carrot. You can increase onion if you want.
    • You can skip green chilli if kids are having it.
    • You can add grated ginger for extra flavour.
    • Using milk or cream makes it more tastier and rich.

Serve hot always with tomato ketchup/ sauce of your choice.

  3. Hi raji,
    Toast looks so delicious.
    Can I do this on a bread toaster?what is the consistency of the batter?
    And did you put batter on two sides?
    Thank you

    1. Bread toaster not sure - may stick.
      I applied batter only one side.

    1. You can use milk or cream for making the batter. If he is allergic to milk products, then just plain water with little lemon juice.
