Garlic Bread, My Style ;)

Serves 1 pound of Bread

Category - Appetizer

This Garlic Bread is a little different from the regular version. And is best when served along with Spinach soup.

Regular Bread - 1 Pound / Loaf
Garlic Paste - 2tsp (This must be freshly ground, ready garlic paste doesn't work)
Red Chilli Powder - 3/4tsp
Butter - 50 to 60g
Salt a pinch (Don't add if using salted butter)

Make sure the butter is at room temperature. In a bowl soften the butter and add the Chilli powder, garlic paste and the salt. Mix well and set aside.

Method I-
On a heated pan fry the bread slices light golden brown on both sides, then spread a little of the butter mixture equally on one side. Now you can toast the bread again on the pan for couple of seconds.
Serve it hot.

Method II-
Toast the bread slices in a toaster, then spread the butter mixture equally on one side of the bread and serve.

You can serve the garlic bread with ketchup too, it tastes awesome!!! ;)
