Each one of us has our own preferences when it comes to toasting bread. Some of us like the spicy variant with chilies and onion whereas some of us like the sweet version with eggs, honey and milk mixture.

The Bombay Bread Toast recipe is a sweet-savory variant of the French toast which has been a part of their food culture since decades now. It has a lip-smacking flavor and is light and healthy as well. Mostly it is eaten as a breakfast dish but if you like it too much you can have it as an evening snack as well.

Milk, vanilla essence, eggs, sugar, ghee, and bread slices are the key ingredients of this recipe. The sweet and toothsome flavor of vanilla essence adds a unique aromatic flavor to the bread slices and the combo of boiled milk and eggs make it rich and flavourful.
