Egg toast – step by step photos
1. Chop 2 to 3 shallots or a small onion, 1 to 2 green chilies (replace with pepper for kids), coriander leaves and deseeded tomatoes. Add them to a bowl along with salt, turmeric and cumin (optional). Tomatoes lend a slight tang and get a melt in the mouth texture when cooked with the egg. If you do not like you can skip or replace with finely chopped bell peppers.
2. Break the egg to the bowl.
3. Beat well with a fork or a egg beater.
4. Heat a pan with oil and spread it well.
5. When the pan is just hot enough, dip the bread slice in egg. Do not over heat the pan.
6. Place it on the pan. You can fry 2 to 3 slices at one time. 2 slices for a medium egg and 3 slices for a large egg. Make sure the flame is adjusted to medium.
7. When the egg is cooked, set them aside and pour the egg mixture to the pan. Allow it to cook a bit and cut in the center with the wooden spoon. After the previous step, you can also pour the egg over the bread and then flip them. I do not prefer that way since it will mess up the pan while flipping and the egg remains under cooked on the sides. If you like that way, you can try. Make sure the egg is thoroughly cooked.
8. When it is almost cooked but still moist, place the bread slices over it. Press with the wooden spatula.
9. Flip it to the other side and make sure the egg is fully cooked on both sides. I also like to sprinkle some red chili powder for extra spice.
