Vegan Savory French Toast | Bread Besan Toast with step-by-step instructions and photos.

This toast is vegan version of french toast. To replace egg we are using gram flour or besan. Gram flour is the best substitute of eggs and gives a nice savory flavor.

In India this is called as besan toast or bread besan toast. The recipe is almost similar.

Read my post of Vegan Omelette (besan chilla or Tomato omelette) which was made with gram flour or besan and loaded with onions tomatoes chillies and basic spices.

Here in this toast, I have taken capsicum, onion, chillies. You can either skip vegetables or add them. serve this toast with any sauce. I loved the combination with sweet chilli sauce.

Tips To Make Perfect Vegan Savory French Toast

1. Well to make this taste more like egg omelette, you need to add black salt. It’s high sulphur content gives it a flavor of egg omelette.

2. If you are using thin slices then dont dip it completely and for more than 3 – 5 seconds. Else it will turn out to be a soggy toast.

3. Otherwise use thick bread slices. Here I have used thick ones. So I have dipped my bread completely in flour batter.

4. To make it little crispy you can add a tsp of rice flour or little refined flour to make it fluffy. You can also add nutritional yeast.
