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 😆

Cinnamon powder
Vanilla extract
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!

‘Eggs’travaganza Week – Wednesday: Veggie Idli

Nothing like a good idli chutney breakfast to kick start your day. I am always game for giving T idli, dosai and the likes of all south Indian food. I mean after all he must do justice to his ‘Tambrahm’ roots when he gets older. But given that this is ‘Eggs-travaganza’ week I couldn’t help myself and I concocted the ‘Egg Veggie Idli’


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Idli batter
  • Grated veggies, I opted for carrots
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • Salt to taste
  • Seasame oil or Ghee

Mix it all together and pour into Idli mould. Steam. Once done, top it off with a generous drizzle of sesame oil or ghee and serve.

PS: Mine looked like this because I put them in cupcake paper cups which made them spread! Pffft… should’ve guessed that! With the cookie cutter to my rescue they looked a lot prettier than the ‘Idli muffin’ I was expecting. :)
