French toast used to be our default, no-brainer snacks when we were kids. If we came back home with a bunch of friends after an evening game, or if a neighbor made a sudden visit, it was always French toast that saved the day. Very tasty yet, extremely easy to make, I use it even now when my 7 year old monster demands “snaky snaky!!”.
Apparently the French has two variant of this. A sweet version is made with egg, milk, sugar and cinnamon. We however, have their savory version which is made with egg, salt and spices.
- 2 slices of sandwich breads
- 2 eggs
- 1tbsp. finely chopped onion
- 1tsp. finely chopped green chilies
- 1/2tsp. chopped ginger
- 1tsp. chopped cilantro

Cut bread slices into squares or triangles according to your choice. In a bowl whisk two eggs with salt, onion, ginger, green chili and cilantro.
In a wok heat enough oil for deep frying. Now dunk each pieces of bread into the egg mixture and carefully slide it in the hot oil. Fry till both sides turn light brown.
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain them on paper towel.
Serve hot with some ketchup as an evening snack.
