Kala’s Spicy Egg Toast

Mothers find it difficult to prepare packed lunches which provide satiety and nutrients, variety, and of course easy to pack and easy to eat in any location or situation. I created this Spicy Egg Toast for my children to carry in their backpacks without any risk of oil or gravy leaking. A couple of decades later it still serves the same purpose when they take the bus to work.

Spicy Egg Toast

More than just a packed lunch, it is very quick and easy to prepare if guests suddenly drop in as you primarily just need some bread and eggs and a few minutes 🙂

Nutritive Value

The spicy egg toast provides energy from the bread and ghee. Protein comes from the egg which is a very high quality protein, giving 13 g of protein per 100 g. This packed lunch not only satisfies hunger but also helps maintain energy levels and delays hunger till the next meal.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices White Bread
  • 2-3 Hen’s Eggs
  • 1 large Onion, diced
  • 1 large Green Chilli, deseeded and diced
  • ¼ C chopped Coriander Leaves
  • ¼ tsp Pepper Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt, or to taste
  • 1 T Ghee (Clarified Butter) or as required

Method

  1. Beat the eggs lightly with the pepper and salt.
  2. Add the onion, chilli, and coriander leaves, and blend well.
  3. Heat a non-stick dosai griddle or tava. Dot it with ghee. Place three bread slices. Lower heat.
  4. Pour a tablespoon of the egg mixture over each bread slice, covering the surface well. Allow 30 seconds for the egg to get cooked.

Pour a tablespoon of the egg mixture to cover the surface of the bread

  1. Pour ¼ tsp ghee over each slice. Turn it over. The bread should have a toasted appearance. If not, wait for 30 seconds, turn again, and leave for another 5 seconds for it to brown properly.

Turn the slices over to cook the other side

  1. Remove and serve.

Notes

  1. If you do not use a non-stick pan, the toast will require a larger quantity of ghee.
  2. The chillies are deseeded as otherwise the preparation will be very hot. With deseeded chillies it has a rather mild flavour.
  3. If you do not like the flavour of ghee on egg, you could always use flavourless vegetable oil instead.
