Bombay French Toast, spicy ish-tyle

Breakfast is like one of the most important meals of the day and if you are like me, who loves to start off on a delicious savoury note, then this dish is for you. Not only for breakfast, it can be made as a lazy brunch or just snack off if you wish to. Interestingly, I made this today - for dinner. See, it is that versatile, quick & easy. Tastes best when served warm.


Whisk together in a bowl - 2 tbsp of milk, salt, 1 tsp hot sauce or less (or finely chopped green chilli/cayenne/red chilli flakes - for some heat), 1 egg and a pinch of turmeric. Add 1/4th cup finely chopped onion, 1 clove of minced garlic and cilantro. Mix well.

Heat a pan with 1/2 tsp of oil on medium-heat.

Meanwhile, cut each bread (white or wheat) into 2 triangles. Dip the bread in the egg mixture for a 30-45 seconds.

Gently transfer the egg-soaked-bread onto the pan. Spoon some onion mixture on the top if you want to.

Cook until golden brown on both side.

Serve with some ketchup or just as-is and sip hot black tea on-side..contemplating about how good the day will be for you and for people around you. :-)

Isn't it the best way to start your day!

Hope you all have a great weekend ahead.

until next time,
