Besan Toast/Eggless Savory French Toast

Besan Toast is one such dish has so many avatars in my kitchen for a healthy breakfast,weekend brunch,lunch on a lazy afternoon or a good snack for a rainy evening.
To make it more healthier I add veggies such as grated carrot,chopped spinach or cabbage depending on the availability.Off to the recipe.............................


Bread 4 slices
Gram flour/besan/kadala maavu1/4cup
Onion(finely chopped)1/4cup
Tomato(finely chopped) 1tbs
Spinach(finely chopped) 2tbs(optional)
Green Chilly(chopped)1nos
Coriander leaves(chopped)1tbs
Red chilly powder/milagai podi1/2tsp
Chaat masala powder1/4tsp
Cumin/jeeragam powder1/4tsp
Salt1/4tsp+a pinch


  1. Mix everything together except oil and bread in a bowl with 1/4cup of water. 
  2. Heat a griddle  or pan and toast the bread both sides till it is crispy.Keep it on a plate.
  3. Now spread the mixture on one side,add oil on the griddle and place the bread with the mixture side in the bottom.Cook it in a medium flame by pressing the bread with the spatula so that it cooks evenly.
  4. Flip it to the other side and cook it for a minute.
  5. Serve it immediately with tomato ketchup.


  • I usually spread the mixture for one side only as my family prefers little crispy.If you want you can use it for both the sides.
  • Toasting the bread is optional as we want crispy I toast it.
  • If I am making it for kids I replace the green chilly with the red chilly powder and instead of oil butter/ghee can be used.
