  1. I do not eat eggs or dairy and have a lot of experience sweet making French toast with alternatives, so I thought I would offer my solution to this recipe for savory which was fantastic!

    Tofu, firm 1/4 block chopped into pieces roughly
    liquid (milk, non-dairy milk) about a cup or to make dipping consistency
    onion 1/4 cup roughly chopped
    green chiles 1/4 cup chopped or to taste
    red chiles dried few, crushed (I used chiles made with homemade dried soy-yogurt chiles)
    curry podi 1 tsp
    coriander podi 1 tsp
    panch puran 1 tsp (or any spice mix you like)
    salt 1 tsp or to taste

    Place all ingredients into blender or as I did, a plain bowl and blend until a smooth batter with the hand-held immersion blender. Then place smooth batter into flat dish, dip thin sliced pieces of bread and fry in skillet.
    I fried lightly in scant palm/coconut oil. Heavenly with coffee.

    1. Hi Aarti,
      Here is a idea I got from an Aunt – take some roasted Rava and mix some buttermilk in it, spice it with some masalas and dip the bread and cook it the same way as shown in the video. She said it was great – different but great. Let me know if you do try it out ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hi Fareeda,

        Wow! We just got done filming our version of eggless French Toast that is similar to this one. Stay tuned! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Hetal and Anuja,
    I watch your videos not only for the recipes, but also for the nice kitchenware that you use. You have the right things needed for the kitchen. I am waiting for your kitchen store to be up.
    What pan are you using in this video? it does not look like the tawa we get from India. And are you placing it on 2 flames?
    I have another silly question. What is that checkered board you have underneath? I see it in most of your videos. Does it serve any purpose or is it just used to accent your video? I’m very curious. Please let me know.

    1. Hi Narmada,
      Thank you for your nice email!

      The kitchen store should be up and running in a couple of days. Meanwhile, here are all the answers to the questions you had:
      The long pan is called a dual burner skillet and it can be bought at Bed Bath and Beyond and other bigger kitchen stores. And yes, it does go on 2 burners.
      The checkered thing is a chopping board…we do use it but it is basically to add a new dimension to the show ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I made the spicy french toast for breakfast today. They were spectacular! I’m going to make them in small squares as appetizers for my next party ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hi Hetal & Anuja

    I liked this recipe but I do not eat eggs. Can I use flaxseed/powder instead of the egg. You showed that on your Tip Tuesday. Will it work well?
    Please reply soon.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Alka,

      French toast is probably not a good recipe to try out the flaxseed powder. It works best in recipes that egg is not a central focal point.

  5. Hi Sujatha,

    Unfortunately, French Toast cannot be made without eggs (at least we have not seen it). The Kottu Parotta can definitely be made without the egg. You can just leave it out or add some yogurt or crumbled paneer.

  6. Hi Hetal and Anuja

    Wow it look so yummy. But can you please give another option for egg. I don’t eat egg.

    I was so happy to see ur kottu parotta. will it be good if i don’t use the egg.

    Thanks

  7. For the spicy one try – red chilly powder, salt, ginger-garlic paste, pour some water and make it a fine paste. Add some milk and mix it well. Add egg and blend everything nicely. Dip the bread and roast it and serve it with a hot n spicy sauce.

  8. hi friends
    its really a good recipe.But problem is that I donot eat eggs,so instead of eggs can I use butter or breadspread?
    thanks
