French toast is a delectable way of cooking bread with a coating of egg and milk. In this aromatic version, we have flavoured the eggs and milk mixture with cardamom, so as to get a nice spicy tinge.

The resulting toast is super tasty and can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee for breakfast or in the evening. French toast, sometimes also called eggy bread, is a popular breakfast option as it is very filling. However, you must remember that it must be served immediately.

You can also try other toast options like the Moong Dal Toast and Oats Moong Toast .

   Hi Uma, we are certainly Vegetarian but we do use eggs. Most of our recipes are eggless though. This is the traditional way French Toast is made and egg is also the binder. We have not tried the Eggless option here. Thanks for your comment.

I never thought a small twist of cardamom can add so much flavour and zing to the french toast... Yummy and flavorsome .....
