Savory Masala French Toast

I first had Masala French toast when my husband made it for me. As soon as that first piece hit my tongue, there was a lovely burst of flavors. It was so savory and so filling. There were so many flavors and the Thai Chili gave it just enough heat. It was perfect.



This masala French toast recipe is so quick and easy to put together and does not require a lot of ingredients at all! This recipe only requires 7 ingredients! 8 ingredients if you decide to use Thai Chilis in your batch. When serving, you can also complement it with some ketchup or chutney with each bite. You can also enjoy it with a cup of hot chai for an even more filling breakfast!



Give this recipe a shot for a unique take on French toast! This savory dish will fill you up and keep your tummy nice and satisfied! If you try it out, let me know what you think!


Ciao for now!
