Bombay Toast

My friend used to bring golden slices of Bombay / French toast for lunch and it was rather popular amongst us... she always had yummy, different lunch/snack items - like waffles, pooris with a kheer (very new to me since at home my mom always made channa or potato curry), date biscuits etc. Since my 2 yr old prefers to have soft food items so it's easier for her to chew quickly, I usually give her melted cheese on bread, dosa or idli with rasam/sambar, upmas with yogurt etc. for breakfast... Decided to try Bombay toast and was rather happy when she liked it since the egg-milk mixture makes it very moist.

BOMBAY TOAST
Ingredients:
Whole wheat Bread - 1 slice
Egg - 1
Milk - 2 to 3 tbsp (I used whole milk since it was for her)
Sugar - abt 1 tbsp or to taste
Butter / Ghee - 1 tsp

Method:
1) In a shallow wide bowl, beat the egg, sugar and milk till combined and slightly frothy.

2) Heat a pan/griddle on medium. Soak the bread in the egg-milk mixture for about 30 seconds on each side until most of the mixture is absorbed. I had about a tbsp or two remaining.

3) Melt the butter on the pan and put the soaked bread on it. Lower the flame so it will cook through completely. Pour the leftover egg-milk mixture on the bread slice (it will all be absorbed when cooked).

4) Cook until golden brown on one side, flip over and cook the other side as well until completely done.

Cut into cubes and serve with fruit & milk (I served with apple slices & some dried cranberries )

  16. Thanks Laavanya. Although not looking forward to all the mess, I am sure I will love the new kitchen when it's over.
    Guess what? They told me it will take 4-6 weeks for the kitchen to be ready once they start, I should save my Microwave somewhere all that time. So, your beautiful toast will help us a lot in coming future and some microwavable stuff from Sri's round ups too!:)

    Hugs to you, keep blogging.
