A unique flavored french toast!! Dont look like tandoori though but flavors of tandoori are fused in... Call it Indian style or my personal inventory It is quiet detectable In taste and different than normal french toast flavor. In my previous posts of french toast I spoke about coming up with varieties of french toast and here is another one I present to you all.
I truely got fed up with daily deep fried goodies though I have pics of my daily cooking I dont have much time to sit and type my long stories as usual, Its almost 15 days Ive posted very less and short simple recipes only. And when I make something interesting I cant stop posting it the same day :)
I simply said mom no fried today pls, mom asked then what? I recalled a pack of bread lying around and said french toast? She nodded Ok!! Though I had planned to make something little different but the final twist came around when I started Adding Masala's
12 - 14 Bread Slices (Cut into 2 each)
Eggs - 5
Chilli Powder 1/3rd tsp
Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp heaped
Coriander powder 1/3rd tsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1tsp
Tandoori Masala - 1 to 2 tsp
Curd - 2 tsp
If curd not available add 1-2 tsp of lemon juice
Milk- 2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves chopped- 2 tablespoons
Salt 2 fat pinch
Oil to shallow fry
- Mix in everything under egg mixture and whisk it up nicely. Allow it to rest for sometime so that all the flavors get infused well.
- When your ready to cook and serve, just dip in the bread slices in to the egg mixture and shallow fry as you would do for normal french toast!!
- Flip the sides and cook in medium flame till well colored in both the sides
- Serve it hot with ketchup
- Level of spices is according to my taste, Please adjust according to your family preference. But spice level should be more coz bread is a bland base where we are applying coating for. May be make one slice for yourself 1st and taste it on what more or less alteration you would like to make.
- Serve it hot, as this taste more flavorful when hot rather cold.
- In case you dont have tandoori masala use any other garam masala for a difference in taste. eg. chole masala, garam masala, chicken masala, curry masala :) Go wild with ur flavorings you wont disappoint yourself for sure
- I saw the coriander leaves hardly stick to the bread mixture when we do the coating, so when u place the bread slices in pan, with help of spoon or hand place the coriander leaves on top manually for a better impression
- Also mix the whole mixture each time bfr dipping in the bread slices. As the masala particles tend to settle down.
- I dint wanted to add red food color to make it look tandoori if you wish feel free to add a thin pinch of food color and whisk it!!
It tasted best when hot along with tomato ketchup. Everyone liked it too!! Adding of tandoori masala seem to be a gud idea for a different treat :)
