French Toast Appé

Thought of rendering a little ‘desi’ twist to my critters’ favourite french toast.

Needless to say they polished it off without a wince or a whine 😆

Egg
Milk
Cinnamon powder
Vanilla extract
Jaggery
Salt, pinch
Bread roughly torn

Whisk the eggs with milk, cinnamon powder, jaggery, punch of salt and vanilla extract. Add the bread bits.


Fry off in an Appé pan with butter.

Have a great Monday!

Breakfast Challenge Day 06, Multigrain Dosa

IMG_8556

Dosa is a staple at our house. The fridge is always stocked with Idli/Dosa batter and it’s just so convenient to whip up idlis, dosas, uttapams and appams and what not!

Dosa is a savory Indian pancake roasted on a pan to a crisp if that’s how you like it. A crisp ghee roast is our all time favorite.

So traditionally, dosa batter is made at home with (uncooked) boiled rice and urad daal soaked overnight and then ground to a fine batter allowing it time to ferment and rise. However, I believe it does require a lot of practice to get it absolutely right which is why I prefer just buying it off the stores and then I’ll add raagi (finger millet) flour or assured flours to it to increase its nutritional value. For this I did the same.

  • On a hot pan, spread the batter with the help of a deep scooped ladle.
  • Sprinkle chopped spring onions and veggies of your choice
  • Dust the top with some chaat masala (optional)
  • Cook on a slow flame until golden brown and crisp

Serve warm with molaga podi (chutney powder that’s douce in sesame oil), coconut chutney or even a yoghurt dip tastes delicious.
