French Toast | Bombay Toast | Kukskitchen

My mum used to make these eggy breads called french toasts and us kids use to love them. In Inida they are also called Bombay toasts. My sister still tells tales of the first time she ate it as a little child on one of her trips with our daddy from a restaurant. Unfortunately I dinot get to taste it from the above mentioned restaurant as they were already closed down before I was even born......what a shame. I donot regret it much since the place was take over by a Brahmin vegeterain restaurant who served delicious masala dosa and chutney.

A few things before we start:
  • French toast is best made with soft varieties of bread like Brioche or Challah
  • Too much milk and your bread turns soggy.
  • Any syrup goes with these lovely s. I use maple syrup, golden syrup or honey.
  • Serve beside fresh fruit.

 I'm Sherin, aka kukku. 

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
