Tips to make the best Indian Style French Toast
Though you can butter or any oil to fry these bread slices, I prefer the nutty flavor of
- it makes the dish so much more flavorful.
Use stale, dry, and hard bread as it soaks up the egg mixture without falling apart.
Use powdered sugar since it easily dissolves in the egg-milk mixture.
Whisk till the egg whites and yolk are completely combined or else while cooking the egg whites tend to separate and stick out making the toast unsightly.
If you have granulated sugar at home you can sprinkle it over the toast when it is almost done cooking. Give it a minute on the pan face-down to allow it caramelize. My kids love it this way!
If you are using storebought sandwich bread, do a quick soak otherwise they will disintegrate.
Drain off excess custard from the bread or else the toast will end up being soggy and also, the excess custard will spread out while cooking.
Add a pinch of cinnamon to turn this into cinnamon French toast.
A dash of orange extract gives a fresh flavor to this dish.
