Bombay Toast

Bombay toast is basically an Indian spin-off of French toast. The addition of condensed milk gives the bread a golden, caramelized flavour.

2 eggs
1 tbs condensed milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 baguette

1. In a bowl, beat eggs, milk and salt together. Pour in a deep plate.
2. Dip cuts up pieces of baguette into the egg mixture to coat. Fry.

Thanks for posting this recipe! My mom made it all the time when I was growing up. My friends were always confused why I called "French toast" Bombay toast.

I found your cooking blog through your other blog--which I loved to read. It appears private now. Will you consider opening it up in the future or adding readers. I have no ties to Denmark--just an indian american who enjoys reading about the immigrant experience all over the world.

Best to you from California!

Hi, you can leave it on the comments page. I have to chose whether to publish your comment or not- so i will leave it unpublished.

Regarding pkt- it basically means packet. Im not quite sure how to convert that into metric/pounds- it would depend on the size of the packet. i can look more carefully at the weight of the packet and write that down on the recipe. for pad thai- it would be 125 g (since the packet is 250g).
