What is he sprinkling on his toast?

Watching a video of a street vendor selling toast in Kolkata. He sprinkles something on the toast - but I have no idea what it is. Anyone know?

I think it is sugar. I was reading about it - I guess they usually sprinkle sugar on their toast in parts of India.

One of my co-workers, with origin from Kolkata region is sure it's sugar, even not having seen the video clip. VERY common in that area, I understand
