Malai Cheeni Toast

Bread (not to be confused with 'baking' in general, which is a very vast subject and goes back to a different era), as we know it today, entered India alongwith the Portuguese; who also got us the Potato - which managed to become our staple thenceforth! Although, it wasn't till the British advent, that a large part of India was introduced to sliced bread (the slice was doubly thick as today and was also known as Double Roti). Since, Calcutta was the epicenter of all British action in India, it is believed that the Malai Cheeni Toast breathed it's first in the city and while the unsalted-ness of the sugared Toast isn't something that the British really enjoyed, it was as if the Indian tastebuds were waiting for the local and familiar version of the Meringue-peaked-toast; and thus chai found it's long-lost brother in the bylanes of Calcutta.

Thick toast, soft and pillowy fresh cream and crystals of sugar - that's how simple it is and that's all it took for this chai-accompaniment to eventually reach almost every house in the country where Malai Cheeni Toast became the ultimate solution to the late-afternoon hunger dilemma! #Nostalgia

We've tried to replicate That very toast but I guess food is not just about the ingredients. It's about where, how and why it's eaten, that truly encompasses the experience. And hence, my dear Kona Dukan, G.P.O, Lalbazar, Calcutta; I'll see you soon!

Cheers n Happy Eatin'!!

p.s - The Kona Dukan version of the Malai Cheeni Toast does have a pinch of salt and a slight sprinkle of spice. They say, "Tosht ka swaad acche se aata hai!"
