    1. Put all ingredients except bread and sesame seeds in food processor and blend to a paste.
    2. Remove crusts from bread and cut each piece of bread into 4 triangles.
    3. Spread the paste on 1 side of the bread and press down as much as possible.
    4. Sprinkle on sesame seeds or place the seeds on a plate or chopping board and then press the toasts paste side down into the seeds. Only seed the paste side.
    5. Heat 2 to 3 inches of oil in a pan or wok (I use a frying pan), until hot but not smoking. Place your toasts into the oil and fry for 30 to 50 seconds each side or as desired and enjoy.

    Yum yum!! Easy once you get knack to it, but I could understand why others would think this was slightly time consuming  -  29 May 2012


    Amazing amazing so easy & so yummy, I will never buy again as so simple to make xxx.  -  16 Nov 2010


    really easy to make, not toooo time consuming and not as fiddly as you think it might be! Don't put too much oil in the pan to start with - the bread really will soak it up, and as long as your pan isn't too hot your toasts won't burn. Drained on some kitchen paper to soak up excess unhealthy oil. Assembled and fried mine in advance and heated in oven later on just before serving. Great recipe - thank you!  -  06 Aug 2011
