I came across this recipe in Meera’s cookbook and at first I was a bit daunted to tell you the truth.
The name just put me off, it sounded so foreign and strange, like it would require ingredients that I would have never heard of in this life time or even be able to get my hands on in this small town of mine.
But upon further inspection of the recipe itself, found out that the ingredients are in fact every day staples that I have in the pantry or the fridge and the method was super duper easy as well.
Of course you would think that having a father that works for a bread company, having bread in the bread bin would be a given. LIES I tell you, I had all the ingredients prepped for this breakfast and then when I went in search of bread, someone so kindly left the empty bread packet in the bin and forgot to mention it, so yes, I had to rush out and buy bread just to make this recipe for breakfast.
Moral of the story, always and I mean always check that you have all the ingredients before going to bed.
I served this with a simply tomato chutney and some slices of crispy fried bacon… PERFECT way to start the day.
For those of you who are daunted by the sounds of the recipe, just think of it as Indian French toast.
