Mixed Vegetable Bread Canapes
We can fill these canapes with any stuffing like mutton, chicken or fish... I chose mixed vegetables. Prepared this third time since diwali my friends and guests during diwali totally appreciated this starter recipe and now its a family favorite snack during tea time.
1 Loaf Bread any kind
2 Tbsp Butter
2 + 2 Tbsp Oil
1 1/2 Tbsp Ginger and Garlic Paste
Finely Chopped Mixed Vegetables 2 Cups (carrots, capsicum, cabbage)
1/4 Cup Sweet Corn
1 Large Onion Finely Chopped
3 Chilies Finely Chopped
Grated Cheese Mozzarella or Cheddar
1/4 Tbsp Curry powder or Garam masala
Salt as per taste
Method: Heat a wok on medium flame with 2 tbsp oil.
once the oil is hot add ginger and garlic paste fry until the raw flavor has gone.
Add finely chopped onion and chilies fry until the onions turn light pink in color.
Add the carrots and capsicum fry until the carrots soften a bit.
Add the cabbage fry a bit do not add water since the veggies already contain enough moisture the veggies will cook under 2 minutes.
Once the cabbage has reduced a bit add corn and salt as per taste if needed add pepper powder stir and fry the veggies on low flame until cooked.
Add curry powder and fry a bit remove from flame and allow the veggies to cool.
Take 2 bread slices using a cookie cutter or a lid cut into equal disc take one disc using a smaller cookie cutter cut the cavity.
Apply butter to the base add cheese and place the second slice with cavity. fill the cavity with veggie filling and top with bit more cheese.
Brush little oil to the sides and bake at 200 degree mark for 10 minutes or until the bread is toasted well.
Serve hot as a snack during tea or as a starter enjoy...:)
