French Toast

I donno why this dish is called french toast. I saw one of my friend, Uma, using milk and sugar for this. But I like french toast a little spicy.

Bread 6-7 pieces
Eggs 4
Pepper powder Half tea spn
Butter 1 tbl spn

Break the eggs into a bowl. Add Salt and pepper. Beat well. Dip the bread into this mixture(there should be a egg coating on both sides of the bread). Apply butter to the frying pan and fry the bread.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 10min

So excited to find this sight… love Indian food already and now can expand my repetoire to include tropical flavors made easy! Thanks! BTW, perhaps a bit of insight into why it is called “French Toast”. As you must know, the Western version is similar but with milk also. I lived in France for a year. Traditionally the French would mix milk and egg, and dip day old bread in it then fry/grill it… It was a way of avoiding any waste! Today, the most common breakfast still is “les tartines” which are slices of day-old bread, sometimes toasted and spread with butter or fruit perserves. Morning coffee is usually served in a large bowl-shaped cup (a “dejeuner”) and is strong but more watered down than espresso… All this for the pleasure of dunking the topped toasts to soften them! (One would never be seen doing this in public!) Hope this offers some insight into perhaps the origin of the name of your recipe! Thanks again, Sharon



Hi Shilpa,

I just love the recipes you have posted here :)

I add little ginger, garlic, green chillis paste sometimes to the mixture




Hi Shilpa,

This recipe is really good.
I usually prepare French toast which is sweet.
Instead of adding pepper, I add milk and sugar to the eggs in the bowl. Rest of the procedure is same.
You can try my recipe too….:)
Also, let me know if you like it.




Hi Shilpa,

I am a fan of your cooking style.. all easy and handy.. have a suggestion for this toast, for the people who loves this toast sweet.
Do the same as your friend Uma did, but try to add a pinch of cinnamon powder & vanilla essence to the batter and again add cinnamon powder as finishing touch while serving..
I tried this, because my husband is a fan of cinnamon rolls. Even my son cannot resist this.
