Hello everybody !! Hope you are having a great week.
I am suffering from fever and stomach ache since Monday. I am so sorry for posting late this week. Hope you understand 🙂 Anyways, we are back on track now I hope.
If you follow my blog since last year, you will remember I had shared with you a Street style Noodles recipe. Hope you enjoyed that post. This post is a similar one – a quick, simple, easy yet delicious snack. If you remember, in the noodles post I talked about a food stall near our office where I go for my afternoon snacks almost everybody. On days I do not prefer the noodles, I order this egg toast. So this recipe is also inspired by the cook of my favorite food stall. Even when I went for coaching classes during college days, this egg toast was my all time favorite snack. It was a pocket friendly yet fulfilling dish. If you are a college / office goer like me, you can relate a lot with this post 🙂
I used a freshly baked loaf, but you can also use sandwich bread if you prefer. The food stalls here use a similar bread as I did.
Lets get started !!
Preparation Time : 5 minutes
With a sharp knife cut a loaf into 2 parts vertically. Now cut each part into 2 halves horizontally. Discard the hard brown crust. You are left with 4 equal bread pieces.
Cooking Time : 5 minutes
- Bread loaf – 1 (If you are using sandwich bread use 2)
- Eggs – 2
- Onion – 1 small or 1/2 of a medium sized, finely chopped
- Green chillies – 4, finely chopped
- Salt – as per taste
- Black pepper powder – 1 teaspoon
- Chaat masala – 1 teaspoon (You can also use dry mango powder)
- Rock salt – 1/3 teaspoon
- Refined oil – 2 tablespoon (I used refined soybean oil)
- Take a medium sized mixing bowl. Add eggs, onions, green chillies and few pinches of salt. Whisk and beat everything well.
- Now take a wide deep bottom frying pan. Heat up oil.
- Add the egg mixture into the pan. Spread the mixture evenly by rotating the pan. Keep the flame medium.
- Now place the bread pieces over the eggs one beside the other, so that all 4 pieces form a square. Remember to place the downward side of the bread pieces first.
- Within few seconds, reverse the bread pieces so that now the upper side of the pieces face the eggs.
- When the eggs turn golden, carefully flip all 4 bread pieces & egg together. Let the other side of the bread cook.
- When both sides are done, turn the flame off.
- With a sharp knife cut the toast into 4 equal parts (follow the shape of the bread pieces). Sprinkle chaat masala / dry mango powder, rock salt and black pepper powder.
Serve French toast with your favorite ketchup / dip. I prefer a cup of flavored tea (without milk) along with this snack.
