Bread Pizza with Sooji and Yogurt

I've had and made bread pizza before but never with yogurt and sooji. I had this at a friend's place last week when we met for tea. Thanks P for the recipe. My son loved it and so I made it the next day at home and washed it down with some Jamun juice. I wish I had better pics.

Whole wheat bread  --------------- 2 slices
Capsicum----------------------------2tbsps finely chopped

Red onion----------------------------2 tbsps finely chopped
Carrot---------------------------------2 tbsps grated
Cheese--------------------------------2 tbsps  grated
Sooji -----------------------------------1 tbsp
Yogurt---------------------------------about 1/4cup or less
Salt ------------------------------------ to taste
Pepper---------------------------------pinch


  • Toast the bread pieces and keep aside.
  • Mix capsicum,carrot,onion,tomato, pepper,sooji and yogurt and keep aside for 1/2 an hour or till the sooji gets soft.
  • Add salt to the mixture just before u start making the pizza.
  • Spread the mixture onto one toasted bread slice and place on a heated pan with a little oil, mixture side down and cook for about 3-4 mins and carefully turn to the otherside.
  • Add cheese and let stay for 2 mins , take off the pan into a plate, cut diagonally and repeat with the remaining slice.
  • Serve hot with ketchup.
  • Enjoy!!!

Note: These turn soggy pretty quickly so serve immediately.

Chilli Gobhi

I'm sure most of u like me adore Indo-Chinese food. I can't tell u guys enough how fascinated I'm with these dishes. When in India a group of friends would go to this restaurant S.R Nagar which served the best Indo-Chinese food......I loved going there. Here in the US, I could not find any decent Indian place near my place which served this kinda food. The one I found did not serve the chilli gobhi. After much brainstorming with my friend N we came up with recipe :) and it is a huge hit.
