You must be wondering why its called a ‘french’ toast, whereas you wouldn’t come across this during your visit to France. To be honest, this toast has been a household favorite and not sure how it came around to be called the french toast, but, since we grew up with this reference, its too late to change it now 🙂
Difficulty : Medium
2 eggs ( free range eggs would be better )
4 slices of wholewheat bread
1 tbsp of whole milk ( diary alternatives can also be used )
1 green chili
1 clove of garlic
Handful of fresh coriander
1 tsp of coriander powder
Pinch of salt & pepper
1 tsp of oil ( I used olive oil )
1.Use a grinder to make a paste with the green chili, fresh coriander, garlic and keep aside.
2. Take a bowl, add eggs, milk, salt, pepper and stir it all up with a fork rigorously
3. Heat a pan, add some oil and wait for 2 mins. Simultaneously, add the paste made in step 1 to the egg mixture and beat again ( only with a fork ).
4. Take a slice of bread , dip it completely in the egg mixture and add it to the pan. Let it cook for 2 mins and flip it over for the other side to cook. Leave it for another 4 mins till its cooked to your liking and repeat the same with other slices.
5. You are ready to serve. Best enjoyed with a chili sauce :-).
