Indianised French toast (with Video)

This is one thing you can make from start to finish in under 5 minutes. Can you guess 3 of the ingredients that have gone into making this one? Other than the BREAD ofcourse.
And if you can guess what the dish is, nothing like it!!

Thanks for all, dear friends your enthusiastic participation. Priya, the first one to guess, hit the nail on the head and pretty much all of you who took a shot :) Teaches me how I must make the guessing games a wee bit more difficult from now on-hahaha

This is one of the quickest things you can make if you have bread and eggs on hand-and if you think an omlette is too boring ! Inspiration for this recipe comes from the good ol' canteen in Ogilvy, where people used to keep ordering food to keep their creative juices flowing...(Ogilvy and Mather is a leading worldwide Advertising Agency)

All you will need for the Indianised French toast (Name courtesy Krishnaarjuna) is

4 slices bread (I use whole wheat / multigrain )

2 medium eggs

2 tbsp milk

1 tsp chopped coriander

2 green chillies finely choppes

1/2 onion very finely chopped

1 tsp each of gram flour and rava (Gram flour for the binding and rava for the crispy texture)

Oil / Butter to cook each slice

Salt to taste.



Method:

Put all the ingredients except the bread into a dish. Nicely coat the bread on both sides with the mixture. If the onions / coriander fall off-just stick some of it on each slice with your fingers.

Heat butter / oil in a non stick pan. Once oil is hot enough, put a slice of coated bread. Let it sizzle for about 30 seconds until the egg batter cooks and then turn the slice and cook other side too till golden brown.

Serve hot for breakfast with coffee or as a snack when the weather's all gloomy like how it is now in Bombay with a hot cuppa masala chai to beat the blues away.
