Paneer moong toast recipe is very easy to do. We just need some moong dal soaked overnight in warm water for at least 8-10 hours. Grind it with little ginger using very little water as we want to keep it thick. Add grated paneer or tofu, fine chopped onions, coriander leaves, green chillies and salt. Apply it on bread along with ketchup, sprinkle some sesame seeds and toast it from both the sides till toast becomes golden brown and crispy.

    1. Hi Neelam ,thanks for visiting my blog. No we don’t have to use roasted sesame seeds. Just use raw one. For butter substitute you can use ghee or oil.
      Happy cooking,

  1. Hi Shilpi,

    Nice recipe. I want to try it but want to ask you a quick question – the moong dal to be grounded is raw right? Do we have to cook it in a cooker? Please let me know.
