The oven baked one & the one made in sandwich toaster is quick to make and barely takes 5 minutes to prepare. All we need to do is just put together the ingredients. With the tawa method, it may take up to 15 minutes for 4 to 6 slices of bread. But the one made on the tawa is more flavorful since capsicum is sauteed for a while with garlic.
