i make these pretty often on days when a quick breakfast is the need of the hour. the recipe is how i have been making these savory toasts for many years.

i won’t call it a savory eggless version of french toast. as i have had french toast made with eggs before, both savory and sweet ones. this besan toast does not taste like the french toast made with eggs. these besan toasts taste like a low fat version of bread pakora minus the aroma and flavor of ajwain (carom seeds). i don’t add carom seeds to the batter. however, if you want the typical bread pakora flavor, then add carom seeds.

yet, these easy to prepare besan toasts make for a good eggless breakfast option. when i make these, i always add tomatoes. i like the taste and texture which tomatoes bring in these toasts. however, you can skip them and even the onions, if you prefer and just make a plain spiced toast. you can also add veggies like capsicum/bell pepper, carrots, spring onions and cabbage.

these besan toasts have to be served immediately. you can serve them plain or with tomato ketchup or coriander chutney.
