The crispy bread with little spicy, tangy mixture; the best you can ask for. Love the flavor combination and texture. Try it once, you will also love this.

When I have leftover boiled potatoes in the fridge. I make this toast in the breakfast for sure. It gets ready in jiffy. Hubby loves to have it with some ketchup on top.

In the step by step pics, I have made it on the stove top. I have also mentioned the method to make it in the oven.

As one reader suggested in the comments below, you can also make this into sandwiches. Apply butter and green coriander chutney on the bread slices. Use this mixture as a stuffing. Close the sandwich with another bread slice. Toast in the toaster oven or you can grill them on grill pan or grill toaster. Thank you for the wonderful idea.
