Let the mixture cool down and then divide into 12 equal parts.

Cut the crust of bread slices and cut into halves. Dry toast the bread slices on hot tawa till golden brown on both sides. Apply date and tamarind chutney on one side of bread. Spread one part of banana mixture on this. Garnish with date and tamarind chutney, mild sev, coriander, pomogranate seeds, split black grapes and chaat masala.

Roast all the slices slightly on hot tawa with butter and serve hot.
