Make your tea-time perfect with a dish of “Besan Toast”, which is quick and easy to make! Core-vegetarian may consider it an ‘Egg less savory french toast” :)
Since I’ve watched the movie ‘Band Baaja Baarat’, I’ve been a big fan of Bread Pakoda, but making it everytime goes heavy n unhealthy for health :( So, I found an alternate which tastes very similar to that deep-fried version ;) Have it as a morning breakfast, evening snack or monsoon munching… Entirely your choice!!!
