Garlic Bread - Indian Style

This is one dish that I always love and always order whenever I visit any Pizzerias and always wanted to try at home. But yeah you need the french style bread - baguette to have a go at this.
I didnt have the slightest hint that you get baguette in chennai until I had one of them in the form of a delicious Tuna sandwich in Tryst cafe - one place which me and Sweetpie visit frequently in ECR. (God... I adore the brownies made here).
Okie now to the subject. So this saturday me and huss launched a treasure hunt to get baguette and finally got it. Thanks to The French Loaf, Velachery.
So here is my recipe and some pics.
Makes - 10 -12
Baguette - 1 loaf
Garlic Cloves medium sized - 4
Butter - 2 cubes
Pizza cheese grated - 1/2 cup
You need it cheesy add 1 cup of cheese.
Salt - a pinch
Kasuri methi leaves - 1 spoon. The recipes I have seen suggest finely chopped parsley leaves. So here comes our Indian style substitute - Kasur Methi leaves.

The Making:
Pulse the garlic in mixie for 5 sec till it becomes a paste
Mix in together the garlic, butter, cheese, salt and Kasuri Methi leaves till it forms a paste.

Cut the baguette loaf into slices. Paint ample amount of the garlic butter paste to one side of the bread slice. Arrange these beauties on a grill. Grill them in an oven for 3 mins and there you go... Home made Garlic bread - The Indian style on your plates...

They were nice. Not too buttery. Hot and Crispy. Sweetpie and Daddy gobbled them down in seconds.
So long peeps...
