Tawa Toast (from: http://ashramblings.blogspot.co.nz/2009/12/tawa-toast-result.html)

… And back in India, they make “tawa toast”, with crudely sliced whole loaf a bread, and the purists would do it over open wood or coal fire: take a griddle, smear it lightly with ghee (butter is a poor cousin, but will do, :-/), put the slices on it, and toast.


Flip till the aroma of the midly (just enough) scalded toast wafts in the air.

Down it only with a glass of spiced milk tea, the “chai”.

Back in the streets of Calcutta, old times, early in the morning, this is street breakfast.

Poetry in food, if there were one, ;-)!
