Masala French Toast (french Toast With Indian Spices)

The traditional French toast is made up of milk, egg and sugar with lots of butter. But this version of masala toast has Indian spices and is a savoury version. It also uses very little milk. I added mint to this version but variations can also be made with coriander leaves, dill leaves or the mix of three. I also added garam masala today but, you can omit it and add cumin powder, pav bhaji masala, black salt or tandoori masala for a change. Though the simplest version of this French toast is without any spice powders and this highlights the real taste of this toast.
