Vegetable French toast

   Breakfast and children's lunch box is always challenging.My kids need something exciting all the time.Once this idea struck in my mind and this was a hit with my kids and family  and friends too.In fact the other day my son took these to school and the teacher who looks after the lunch time in school was eyeing his box.She later asked me what it was and she was very tempted to have a bite!I obliged by sending her a few the next day which she throughly enjoyed and too the recipe too.Since my kids are not too fond of sweet french toast, I invented this and its quite frequently made now as breakfast, evening snack or even for dinner when we are hungry for a small dinner.Serve it with chutneys, sauces of choice or just the way it is, nutritious and delightful.
Bread slices                         6-8 pieces(of your choice,I like multigrain)
semolina                               1/2 cup
chopped onions                     1 no
chopped broccoli                   1/2 cup
grated carrots                         1/4 cup
chopped capsicum                  1/4 cup
sour curd                                1 cup
oregano                                  1/2 tsp
pepper powder                       1/2 tsp
chilli flakes                               1/2 tsp
oil                                            1 tbsp
grated cheese                          1/4 cup
salt to taste
butter to cook

Keep the bread aside and mix all the ingredients in a bowl.Keep for 15 mins so that they blend well together.Add water to have a dropping consistency.Heat a pan.Put the mixture on the bread and put it on hot  buttered pan.Cook on medium heat and apply butter and cook on both sides.Press slightly to cook them well.Roast till golden brown.Cut into slices and serve with sauce or chutney of choice.
