Its a rainy day and a quick, hot toast with coffee will be nice. What say, eh? Here is an Indian variation to the French Toast to keep you warm.
Here’s how you can make a quick Punjabi Toast or as I call it Veg Egg Toast (quite contradictory that one is! But I like the name) It is one of the best ways to get your body the wholesome combination of Protein-Carbohydrates-Fibre-Fat. By the way fat isn’t all that bad for human body if taken in moderation; it is in fact a requirement of the body. Read up some real nutrition books, you will know.
You will need:
3 Slices of Bread (Preferably Brown)
1 fresh tomato, finely chopped
2 green chilies, finely chopped
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp turmeric
Chat Masala (Optional)
1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds Powder (Optional)
A pinch of chilly flakes (Optional)
1/2 tsp ghee (clarified butter)
Salt (to taste)
Here’s how you make Punjabi Toast:
Crack open the eggs in a bowl. Add salt, turmeric, black pepper and cumin seeds powder to it. Blend well.
Add all the chopped vegetables to this blend. Mix well with a spoon.
Cut the bread into half, making 2 triangles out of 1 slice. If you don’t like the sides, you can cut them off. I love the crispiness they give and also holds the toast together.
Heat a flat bottomed pan/ tava. Spread some ghee/ clarified butter on it. Put a piece of cut bread on it, let it toast a bit, turn it over. Now you have the roasted side facing up. Spread the egg-veggies batter on the roasted side. Turn it over. Spread the egg-veggies batter on this side too. Turn it over after the 1st side as cooked.
I like to spread egg-veggies on 1 side and only the egg on the other side. You can try anyway you like.
Sprinkle chaat masala for added flavour.
Your Pubjabi Toast is ready.
