Bombay Toast

Bombay Toast
Today breakfast for my kids was Bombay Toast.What's that many would ask? Well it nothing but the same French Toast -the South Indian version which is salted rather than sweet. The egg is beaten with milk, salt, green chili and chopped onion,tomatoes,coriander leaves and spice like turmeric powder,garam masala ect.. Bread is dunked into this mixture and is deep fried in butter or cooking oil. It is served with ketchup.I remember having these in Chennai a very long back while visiting our relative.If it's right it Hotel Chandra where I tastes these toast for breakfast and when asked they it's Bombay Toast-our hotel's superficiality.Instead of making the sweet version I decided to make these for my son . You can see that I'm posting the recipe immediately. Normally recipes would be sleeping in my laptop for quite sometime before I find time to post them. As for now I have a about 20 recipes laying there begging to be posted:D

Serving Size: 5

10 slices of old white breads
3 eggs
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes
2 green chillie minced
1tsp chillie powder
1/4tsp garam masala
1/4tsp turmeric powder
1tsp black pepper powder
salt to taste
finely chopped coriander leaves
a pinch of hing powder

Preparation Methods:
In a large bowl crack the eggs one by one and add all the ingredients expect the bread.Wisk them until fluffy.Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture.
Melt some butter over a large skillet on medium high heat. Add as many slices of bread onto the skillet as will fit at a time. Fry until brown on both sides, flipping the bread when necessary. Serve hot with mint and tamarind chutney.
