Author Mukta Tikekar


  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of Foccasia or multigrain bread
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 green chili finely chopped (omit this for toddlers and small kids)
  • 2 tsp milk
  • Pinch of black pepper powder
  • Half tbsp oil
  • 1 cube of cheese grated
  • Salt to taste


  • Break an egg in a wide bowl and whisk it using a fork.
  • Add milk, salt, black pepper powder, and again whisk it lightly.
  • Add chopped coriander and mix it well with the egg mixture. You can also add chopped green chili if you are making this French toast for grownups.
  • Cut a slice of bread in 9 equal pieces. (For older kids, you can cut the slice in fewer pieces.)
  • Heat a non-stick pan and add oil. It’s preferable to use olive oil. If you don’t have olive oil you can use any cooking oil.
  • Dip the bread pieces in the bowl one at a time and let them soak the egg mixture. You need to ensure that they’re coated with the egg mixture from both sides.
  • Place the bread pieces on the pan. You should keep the pan on low flame.
  • After the bread pieces turn light brown, turn them over and add grated cheese on top.
  • Cover the pan with a lid.
  • Turn off heat after the other side too turns light brown.
  • Add some tomato ketchup on top of the pieces before serving.
