  • Oil 1 tbsp
  • Medium onions, finely chopped 2
  • Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped 2 tbsps + to sprinkle
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced 8 to 10

  • Trim the edges of bread slices and soak the centre portion of the slices in a bowl of 1 cup water. Squeeze out excess water from and put into another bowl.
  • Take semolina in a mixing bowl, add refined flour, salt and yogurt and mix well. Add the soaked bread pieces and blend this mixture in a blender. Transfer the batter into the bowl.
  • To make the topping, heat oil in a non-stick pan, add onions and saute till golden brown. Add coriander leaves and cherry tomatoes and mix well. Cook till tomatoes soften.
