Masala French Toast
"Masala French Toast" is my twist to the regular sweet french toast which we all know.
I have been making these almost every week for the past several years, but from the time I started my blog, I have not managed to click a picture of this dish.
The reason is quite simple, every time a few of these toasts are off the pan, they are goggled up by my husband and daughter and last but not the least by the one who is making them.. u guessed right....ME!!
So somehow not been able to present them in a serving dish and take a picture.
However today I decided to make it as a mid-morning snack for my daughter as she has study hols, and while she was studying made these and clicked a picture...
Couldn't keep my hands off them, but somehow did manage...
So here goes, a simple, tasty and healthy snack but for those who return home after a long and tiring day at work, this could work as a meal itself...
Also one of the simplest dishes for beginner at cooking or a single person living alone!!
Bread - 8 slices cut into quarters, 16 squares
Eggs - 5
Green chillies - 2 - chopped finely
Mint leaves - 1 handful - chopped finely
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Chat masala - 1 tsp
Roasted Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Butter/Olive oil/any other oil - 1/2 tsp for every batch
Take a large bowl, beat the eggs well adding all the other ingredients.
Take a shallow pan, keep on low heat, add 1/2 tsp of butter/oil.
Now dip each piece of bread into this egg batter so that both sides are coated and fry it in the pan,
you could fry 4 pieces at a time.
Fry till both sides are golden in color.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup garnished with mint leaves.
