Cheesy Golden Fingers and My First Win :Cookbook

                                                                         
The doorbell rang in the middle of the afternoon and I opened the door to find a courier delivery boy holding a packet and asking me to do the formalities of receiving. When I opened the packet I was jumping with joy as it was a cookbook which I had won. Most of you remembered that I won at Pari's 'Only' Kid's Delight Event. This was the first gift that I won by participating in any blog related event. I got a wonderful and very useful cookbook from India's no. 1 cookery author Tarla Dalal's Finger Foods for Kids. Thanks a ton Pari , am very happy to receive this book which has 5 sections :Dips, Breads, Mini Munchies, Veggie Tit-bits and Sweet Treats.


Today I'm going to share one of my son's favorite recipe from the book. Creamy, crusty and soft-these golden fingers are so delicious that I bet you simply will not be able to stop at one. the grated carrot and pepper add to the taste. Leave alone children, I bet even adults will enjoy every bite.


Serves: yields 18 fingers, Preparation time: 10 minutes


Ingredients:
2 tbsp soft Butter
5 tbsp Cheese (grated)
1/2 tsp freshly ground Pepper powder
3/4 cup Carrots (grated)
1/4 tsp Green chilly paste
3 tbsp Fresh cream 
Salt to taste
6 Bread slices


Method:
In a large bowl mix butter, 2 tbsp cheese and pepper powder till it gets very soft. Add carrots, green chilli paste, cream and salt. Mix well. Divide the mixture into equal portions and keep aside. Toast the bread slices in a pop-up toaster till they are crisp and brown in color from both the sides. Place each toasted bread slice on a dry surface and spread a portion of the mixture evenly over it. Sprinkle 1/2 tbsp od cheese on each bread slice and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 Degree Celsius for 10-15 minutes or till the time cheese melts. Cool slightly, cut each toast into 3 equal pieces vertically and serve immediately.
