Street style French toast (Dim toast)

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)


Recipe :

  1. Take a medium sized mixing bowl. Add eggs, onions, green chillies and few pinches of salt. Whisk and beat everything well.
  2. Now take a wide deep bottom frying pan. Heat up oil.
  3. Add the egg mixture into the pan. Spread the mixture evenly by rotating the pan. Keep the flame medium.
  4. 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.
  5. Within few seconds, reverse the bread pieces so that now the upper side of the pieces face the eggs.
  6. When the eggs turn golden, carefully flip all 4 bread pieces & egg together. Let the other side of the bread cook.
  7. When both sides are done, turn the flame off.
  8. 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.
