Call them jaffles, call them sandwiches or call them toasties. Which ever name you may want to address them with, will not change the fact how scrumptious these are. I love scrambled eggs but I like to pep up my bhurjee since my Indian palate finds a simple scramble or omelette a little bland with just some salt and pepper. An Indian style omelette or for that matter the bhurjee (scrambled eggs) has a lot happening in it. You will find sautéd onions, tomatoes, peas, mushrooms and some cilantro added to them; besides green chillies may be. I promise you, you will never want to go back again to that bland omelette or scrambled eggs after trying these toasties spiked with sour mango pickle masala that make these jaffles spicy, hot and full of flavours. I sometimes serve these with tomato sauce but honestly, these jaffles are so ‘complete’ and good on their own that you really do not need any accompaniments to them. I am keeping this post really short and taking you straight to the recipe. Enjoy them for breakfast, brunch or snack on them.
1/3 C finely chopped, Onions
1 Green chilli
5 Eggs (they weighed 45 gms each)
1 tbsp Milk
1 tsp chilli flakes (adjust heat to taste)
Salt to taste
1½ – 2 tsp Aam ka Khatta Achar (Sour Mango Pickle Masala) – adjust to taste
¼ C chopped, fresh Coriander / Cilantro
8 – 10 slices Bread
Butter or Oil for brushing the bread
Heat oil or butter in a pan and sauté the onions and green chillies till the onions just begin to turn golden. Add the egg batter and cook on medium heat, stirring all the while, till cooked.
Take one slice of bread and spoon over the filling. Cover with the other slice of bread and apply butter over it. (I usually apply butter on all the four corners and just a little bit in the center)
Transfer the filled bread slices to the sandwich press or jaffle maker and make the sandwich/ jaffles as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Once done, remove and serve hot with the sauce or chutney of your choice.
Yield: 4 – 5 Jaffles (depending on the size of bread)
