Vegetarian French Toast?

This is something that my mom used to make for us. It is very simple and though she made it one day with leftovers, because of the taste and the simplicity she often made it as a snack or breakfast after that.


Are you wondering what is so vegetarian in this french toast? This recipe does not use egg but uses dosa batter.

Bread- one slice
Dosa batter- 1 ladle
Onion- well chopped about 3 tbsp
Finely chopped cilantro- 1 tsp
Finely chopped green chili- less than 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tbsp


Cut the brown slices from the bread. Pour the dosa batter onto a plate. Add chopped onions(grated carrots if you like), cilantro, chopped chili and salt.

Lightly drip both sides of the bread in this batter. Eggs will be thin but dosa batter is thick, so do not coat it a lot, a light coating would do. If you make it thick, the batter will be undercooked along with the bread.

Heat a tava/non stick frying pan, add a drizzle of oil and place the bread in the pan. Let it cook on a slow flame, when one side turns brown, turn it over and cook the other side.

Serve it with tomato ketchup or cilantro-mint chutney.

You can use either toasted bread or plain bread. I use only white bread as sometimes whole wheat bread does not taste good with this.

You can even pack it for lunch as the bread will be moist and dosa also will not get dry!
