Sometimes I only make these yummy toasts for dinner along with some soup and I am good for dinner.

Some other easy to do, nutritious and very filling recipes from my blog for dinner are bread uttapam, veg pulao, egg tortilla wrap, curd quinoa and veg cheese sandwiches. 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.

This moong toast is very good for diabetic patients, if you have high cholesterol  or if you are on diet as it is rich in fiber and protein and low in calories. You can also substitute white bread with multigrain bread or whole wheat bread to make it even healthier.

Here are some substitutes you can do with this paneer moong toast:

  • Instead of grated paneer you can also use grated tofu that also works fine in this recipe.
  • You can also mix grated carrots in paneer and moong mixture.
  • I used green whole moong dal but you can also use yellow moong dal.
  • Instead of ketchup you can apply green chutney on toast.
  • You can use white bread, wheat bread or multigrain bread all work fine in this recipe.
