Bombay Toast

It's a sunday and I consider bread and egg the ideal sunday start. So this sunday I decided to make bombay toast. I made them with olive oil, which is neutral and does not affect the flavor of the dish. I used to think that extra virgin olive oil should not be heated up but after watching Aditya Bal do it on "Olive it up", I decided that I too could do that once in a while.


Ingredients (For 5 slices of bombay toast) :

  1. 3 eggs
  2. 5 slices of bread - I used Nilgiris multigrain bread, taking advantage of having a Niligiris 1905 store near my place
  3. 1/4 cup milk
  4. 1 tbsp sugar
  5. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  6. a pinch of salt
  7. Olive oil/Butter - 2 tbsp
How I made it :
  1. Beat the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract and salt together.
  2. Heat a tawa.
  3. Add some olive oil to the hot tawa.
  4. Dip a slice of bread in the egg mix ensuring that it absorbs quite a bit of it and place this on the tawa.
  5. Let it cook for a minute on each side on low flame. 
  6. Repeat with other slices of bread.
  7. I served mine with my homemade strawberry preserve.
