Anda Pav- Bombay Toast

This is the Indian version of French toast. In Mumbai(one of India's metropolitan), people travel long distances for work by train. While waiting for their trains they try to grab a quick breakfast and a hot chai(tea) from the street vendors at the station. Bombay toast is one such popular breakfast item that is available. It is preferred because it is quite filling and cheap.

Preparation time:10 mins
Cooking time:10 mins

3 bread slices, preferably whole grain white
4 large eggs, beaten
1/4 red onion chopped very finely
3 small fresh green chilies
1/2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tbsp coriander leaves chopped finely
1 tsp butter
salt to taste

In a bowl add the eggs, onions, ginger-garlic paste, green chilies and salt. Mix well. Heat a non stick pan and add the butter. When the butter melts spread it across the entire pan. Take a single slice of bread, dip it well into the egg mixture. Remove it. Place it on the pan and shallow fry it on a low heat till it turns golden and crispy. Flip it and repeat the same procedure on the next side. Serve hot with tomato ketchup.

Note: Use butter, not oil. The bread has to be crispy.
