French Toast with an Indian Twist

I have never really liked French toast because they are too sweet. In my opinion, the French toast served in American restaurants should be under the dessert menu instead of breakfast. Well that’s just me, I am sure there are many of you who don’t agree.
So, here is a savory twist to suit my palate. I used a spicy jalapeno cheese bread to add to the flavor, you can of course use any bread of your choice.
Jalapeno cheese bread – 2-3 slices
Eggs – 2
Chopped onion – 3 tbsps
Cilantro chutney (optional)
Crushed mint – 1 tsp
Milk – 2 tbsps
Salt to taste
Grind together cilantro leaves, a pinch of tamarind, green chilies and salt to make chutney.
Beat together the eggs, onion, milk, salt, and mint. Add the cilantro chutney (if using). Heat a small pan on medium heat and keep ready. Dip one slice of bread in the egg mixture and place in the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes, flip and cook the other side. Repeat with the other slices and serve hot with ketchup. Bon app├ętit.
