Eggless French Toast

Eggless French Toast - Made from chickpea flour /gram flour

I remember my mom packing these yummy vegan toasts for my lunchbox when I was a kid.  Made from chickpea flour /gram flour (popularly known as besan in India), replacing the usual eggs, I stuffed them with mashed potatoes to make a wholesome meal. It could be a great idea for your kid’s lunchbox 

Ingredients (serves 2-3)
8-9 slices of bread
2 cups of chickpea flour (gram flour/besan)
Salt to taste
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
¼ teaspoon red chilli powder (optional)
¼ teaspoon coriander powder (optional)
2-3 boiled potatoes, mashed
1-2 green chillies chopped
Freshly chopped coriander
Oil/Butter to grease 
Water to prepare batter

Cooking Method
1. To prepare the batter first – Add the chickpea flour in a mixing bowl. Add salt, turmeric powder and rest of the spices – red chilli powder, coriander powder (optional). Also add some freshly chopped coriander to it. Mix well. Now slowly add water to it to make a smooth flowing batter.

2. For the stuffing – To the mashed potatoes add some salt and chopped green chillies. Mix nicely and keep aside.
3. Take 2 slices of bread and put some stuffing between the two and press gently (You can skip this step if you don’t want any stuffing. Take a single slice then). Dip the slices in the batter completely. Place the dipped slices on a hot pan and pour some oil to grease the corners.
4. Keep the flame on medium heat. Turn it upside down to cook golden brown on both slides.

5. Remove from pan, cut into equal triangular portions and serve with tomato ketchup or green chutney.
