Spicy French Toast

This spicy version of french toast is a favorite snack of mine. Sometimes I aerve it for breakfast or as a mini meal. Mom used to serve us this quick, tasty dish pretty often. It's a great snack to make for kids, when they get a snack attack after school. It's quick, easy, healthy, nutritious and most of the ingredients are easily available in the pantry. Unlike the sweet version, this french toast has a little kick to it. I wager that you will find this toast really delicious and will have a hard time stopping at one slice :).

Serves 2

4 slices of white or brown bread (use your favorite kind)
2-3 eggs - beaten
A splash of milk
A pinch of turmeric
A pinch of ground cumin
1/2 tsp chilli powder (use paprika for less spicy)
1 green chilli chopped (optional)
1 onion, finely chopped
salt to taste
a pinch of sugar (optional)
a few cilantro leaves
One teaspoon of oil or butter

Heat oil or butter in a frying pan on medium heat. Pour the eggs into a shallow wide bowl. Add the milk, turmeric, chopped chillis, chilli powder, cilantro, salt and sugar to the beaten eggs and wisk lightly with a fork. With a pair of tongs, take a slice of bread and soak both sides with the egg mixture making sure that every inch of the bread is covered. Transfer the slice of bread into the hot oil in the frying pan. Fry on both sides until golden brown and crispy. Cut into triangles, and serve with tomato ketchup or your favorite dip.

Authors Note:
You can easily use egg beaters in this recipe, to make it healthier - and cooking spray may be used instead of oil or butter - however, make sure that you use a non-stick frying pan if you do.
