What Is Bread Besan Toast?
Besan means chickpea flour or gram flour. This is basically a toast where you dip a bread slice in spiced chickpea batter and toast until crispy. Bread besan toast is similar to savory french toast.
This besan bread toast is vegetarian variation for those who do not eat egg toast. These savory toasts is something I make for a quick after school snack also. While making for toddlers and kids you can add grated carrots as well for color and nutrition.
This besan bread toast is not eggless savory french toast but close enough. Usually chickpea flour is used to replace egg in Indian vegetarian cuisine. Furthermore a vegetarian omelette is made with chickpea flour, onion and tomato in our homes. This besan bread toast is very similar to that.
