I love to have light and healthy breakfast..I don’t like to have sweet stuffs for breakfast.  Most of the days my breakfast will be some juice or fruits. I often have bread with egg, and I love it too. But some day I don’t like to have eggs in the morning, then I was trying to get some egg substitute in my dishes ..Hence this dish was invented.

This French toast taste more or less like egg toast..I even have a recipe for vegetarian scrambled egg with this gram flour.I will post that soon..

  15. Hi Aarthi,

    I love all the recipes of urs. A constant visitor of your page..Today i tried this recipe with brown bread. Unfortunately it did not taste well. The kadalamavu was not properly cooked inside ..Was not upto our expectations. Appreciate if you could advise what would have went wrong???

  16. @Gayathry Vdrizzle generous amount of oil and cook. so the best will be cooked, also cook on a medium low heat for a little bit more time.
