Bombay Toast

Bombay toast is everyone's favorite snack. It holds a spot in our childhood memories, having filled innumerable tiffin boxes and our tummies. There must be a hundred different ways of making it, in each family. This is just the way my family likes it with a few of my add-ons! This recipe is for 2-4 people.

  • Bread-4 slices, cut diagonally into triangles (day-old bread is better).
  • Egg-1
  • Milk-1 tablespoon
  • Onions-1 small one, chopped really fine
  • Green chilles-1, chopped fine. You can deseed if you want less heat or increase the number if you like it hot!
  • Cilantro-2 tablespoons, chopped fine
  • Pepper-To taste
  • Salt-To taste
  • Turmeric powder-A pinch, optional
  • Garam masala powder-A pinch, optional
  • Butter/vegetable oil-4 tablespoons or enough to shallow fry (but as Julia Child said, “With enough butter, anything is good.")

Crack the egg into a bowl.
Beat it with a fork.
Add the rest of the ingredients, except bread and butter/oil.
Heat butter/oil in a frying pan.
When it is hot, but not smoking, dip one bread slice in the egg mixture, making sure to turn both sides and get it well coated with the onions, cilantro, etc.
Place the slice in the pan.
Quickly repeat for the next slice.
Flip the slices over and fry till golden.
Serve hot with ketchup.
