Eggless Masala French Toast

All my bags are packed I am ready to go!
I'm not talking about John Denver's song.

Oops I did it again!
No, I'm not talking Spears' song.

I'm talking about what I just did... for the second time in 2 weeks. Found a recipe on a blog I visit and made it within a few hours. I leave home in an hour or two to go home. I didn't feel like cooking something just for myself. I didn't feel like Maggi or a dosa or any of those things. As I was winding up my work for the day, I went to Food Blog Desam and saw that Coffee had put up a post that said "Guess". I clicked on that link but it didn't take me to the page where I could find a guessing contest. I browsed a little and found a recipe for an Eggless French Toast. I decided that this was what I wanted to eat.

But I only had some Amul Masti Buttermilk and no curds. No ginger paste. So I said, let me make do with what I have. I remembered the packet of Vegit Aloo Mash. Thanks for the inspiration, Coffee. I loved eating this for a light lunch just now.


2 slices of Bread
1 small Onion, chopped finely
1 green Chilli, chopped finely
100 ml Amul Masti Spiced Buttermilk
1/4 cup Aloo Mash (or a medium sized potato, cooked and mashed)
1/4 cup Rava
2 tbsp Coriander Leaves, chopped
Salt to taste
Oil for shallow frying

Mix all the ingredients except for the bread and oil and let the mixture wait for a minute or two. The potato mash powder should soak up the liquid and become soft. Dip the bread slices in the batter and coat both sides evenly.

Shallow fry on a tawa using oil as necessary and enjoy it with Tomato Sauce.

And I am giving Coffee a taste of her own medicine... oops... french toast! This is my entry to The Spice Cafe for July's Monthly Blog Patrol: Going Lite.

Sharmi said...

now that every body is making it I should also give it a try. looks good.

Raaga said...

@Asha: Thanks. Aloo Mash was launched last year. I find it super convenient.

@Richa: I am having a great time at home. The aloo did make the toast taste lovely. And the dhania in mutter paneer is subtlely different.

@Sia: At this rate, I'll be sent to a deaddiction camp soon. Will it be held within the blogosphere?? Hmm, I wonder.

@Seema: necessity is the mother of invention :)

@Sharmi: Let me know how it comes out.

Thanks for all the lovely wishes girls. Am enjoying my stay and have just given my mother a guided tour of my blog and some of yours too.
