French Toast a name that makes people drool the world over is generally out of the reach of vegetarians as its other name is Eggy Bread! It is basically bread that is soaked in beaten eggs, then deep-fried and drizzled with honey. This vegetarian version is just as tasty! Here, we have dipped the bread slices in a mixture of fresh cream and milk sweetened with sugar and thickened with corn flour, instead of the traditional egg-based batter. Another positive twist in this recipe is that it is cooked on a tava rather than deep-fried. Had fresh and hot, topped with honey and cinnamon powder, it is nothing short of a taste of heaven!
