Bombay French Toast

My daughter hates eating bread, no sandwiches, no buttered toast, nothing. She probably doesn’t even like the sight of it. And I am at a loss of how to make her eat bread so she feels full until lunchtime.

So I came up with this recipe of Bombay French Toast. This is what you will need:

2 Slices of Bread

1 egg

2 tbsp of milk

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1 tbsp shredded cheese (we prefer cheddar)

1 tbsp butter

salt to taste


Beat the egg until nice and fluffy. Now add some milk and beat some more. Add all of the ingredients other than cheese.

Dip the bread slices in the egg until covered with mixture. Now put it on the frying pan with the butter. Turn over when done and add the cheese in equal amounts to both the slices.

Serve hot. It is also great from the rainy days.
