This sounds very Western, but it’s very Indian too. Indians eat this when in need of a little comfort. It is particularly delicious with a cold Kingfisher at Leopold’s in Colaba.

In Bombay your chilli cheese toast would invariably be made with Amul, the ubiquitous Indian dairy brand. Their famous hand-drawn ads feature the Amul “moppet” (a national icon) accompanied by clever, topical puns. For us Indians, Amul tastes like home. We use mature Cheddar instead of processed Amul cheese
