Caramelized Masala Onions on Crispy Oven Baked Toast - drizzled with a tangy mint yoghurt for a perfect appetizer or lunch
The delicious base of a curry and those fragrant onions was this inspiration for this recipe. I love caramelized onions on toast and what better than masala flavoured.
and of course who does love anything Indian spiced with a delicious mint yoghurt, it finishes the dish off perfectly.
A great recipe for vegetarians too or when you just want a simple meat free meal.
