Heat oil in a deep bottom frying pan. Set the heat to medium. Add the onions when the oil is hot.
Add a pinch of salt to accelerate the onion frying process. Add a pinch of turmeric powder if you wish to. You need to fry the onions till they begin to turn golden brown.
While keeping a close eye on the onions, roughly chop the ingredients for the paste. Turn them all into a paste using a pestle as shown.
If you preparing more servings you can coarse grind it using a food processor. Since I was prepping just 2 servings I used a pestle.
Make sure you are tossing the frying onions in between so that they don't turn black.
Tip: If you want a small twist, you can add a few mint leaves while preparing the paste.
Once the onions are golden brown, add the freshly prepared paste of coriander leaves, cumin, green chilli's & jaggery.
Add about 30 ml water to the mortar & take off any paste sticking to it. Add this water to the pan.
Fry this paste along with the onions for about a minute. Add salt to taste. Now add the bread pieces & mix well. Make sure each piece has some coating of the paste.
Now fry the bread for a minute or two. You can fry for longer if you want the bread slightly toasted.
Garnish with some finely chopped coriander leaves if you want to.
