I was looking for something simple to make for Sia’s Street Food edition of the Monthly Blog Patrol, and was browsing through some of my favorite blogs when I came across a recipe for Roti John on Nupur's blog. Roti John, I found out, is a popular and much-loved dish sold by hawkers on the streets of Singapore. It is basically a toasted French loaf spread with pan grilled eggs and minced meat, and served with a chilli- ketchup sauce. It sounded a lot like my version of French toast, minus the minced meat.
I followed Nupur's recipe. She uses soy granules as a substitute for the minced meat that the original version calls for.
For 2 servings
A baguette or a French loaf (I used what I had- 4 thick pieces of Texas garlic toast)
2 Tbsp milk
4 green chillies, finely chopped
3 Tbsp rehydrated soy granules (I used Nutrela's granular TVP)
¼ cup of finely chopped onions
Salt to taste
Oil for pan frying
In a bowl, beat the eggs along with milk and add the soy granules, chillies, onions and salt. Mix well.
We had this with some Maggi hot and sweet sauce.
I had some of the egg mixture left over at the end which I used to make something else. I'll save that for another post.
