I am a firm believer that a good breakfast is absolutely necessary to keep you going the whole day. One of my favorite breakfast food is eggs. I like eggs in any form. My mom tells me that when I was a teenager, I used to say that I had to eat eggs and bread everyday for the rest of my life, I will be very happy.

One of the recipes that my mom makes is the ‘desi styled, spiced French toast’. She takes all the ingredients of the typical Indian Style Masala omelet  like chopped onion, tomatoes, green chili,cilantro and use it as a batter for the french toast. It tastes just divine. I love eating it with Maggi Hot and Sweet sauce. She toasts the bread slice a little before she dips in the batter which I think makes a big difference.

So when my friend Ruchi Airen posted a recipe of Spicy Buttermilk French Toast, I knew I had to try it. So here is my take on Ruchi’s recipe. BTW, she is an amazing cook, I am planning to try her detox plan soon.



2 eggs

2 tbsp chopped onion

2 tbsp grated Lauki (optional but a good way to sneak veggies in)

1/4 tsp chopped green chili

1 tbsp chopped cilantro

1 tsp Pavbhaji Masala ( or Garam masala)

1/4 cup buttermilk

1/3 cup Shredded cheese, I used the mexican blend I had on hand

2 multigrain bread sliced





Whisk the eggs with all the ingredients except cheese and buttermilk.




Add buttermilk and cheese and mix well.


Dip the bread slices and make sure the batter coats the slices from both sides.


On a heated pan cook in a little bit of oil it till brown on both sides.


Your healthy breakfast is ready.  

My kids just loved it. I was happy because I got them to eat ‘Lauki without them realizing it 🙂 .
