Recipe Notes

Notes:

  • Grilling the tomatoes will enhance the flavour for the topping.
  • Flipping n turning the bread slices is essential.
  • Rubbing garlic is important, because the bread will soak all the flavour of the garlic and you would get the garlic flavour without even eating chopped garlic.
  • For the Indian style you can add some sweet corn and jalapenos if you like.
