Sunday, July 12

From the kitchen....

I learnt this recipe few days back from an aunt of mine; and since then it has been the lunch/ brunch/ dinner of my innumerable lazy evenings and afternoons. Steamed egg is what she calls it; but i guess it can be re-christened and upgraded to a better name...:)

I have beta tested this recipe on my siblings quite a few number of times...:); results and feedbacks were pretty decent. After showing the pics to N and T; i also got the assurance that it looks pretty tempting. So, i thought why not put a post on it, and save this Sunday from being another "did nothing" day..:)

To prepare it for one person, all you would need is:
2 table spoons of cooking oil
Any of the following vegetables: Capsicum (red/green/yellow), Baby Corn, Cabbage, Mushroom. (These are the only ones i have tried; you can happily try others).
Cheese (Slice or grated)
Green Chillies-1-2
2 slices of Brown Bread

Put 2 table spoon of oil in a pan (kadhaai to be precise). Add chopped oinions(cut into medium size pieces. Fry the onions till they start turning brown. Add other vegetables and green chillies (finely chopped) and fry on low flame for some 5-6 minutes. Now add chopped tomatoes, and masalas (salt, garam masala (thora sa) and kitchen king (1 table spoon)). Fry all the ingredients in the pan for another 3-4 minutes till you feel the vegetables have started loosing their rawness. (You can also add bread crumps, this would make it more filling and can easily suffice for a complete meal)

Break eggs on the top this mixture and sprinkle some jeera powder/ pepper powder on it. Cover the pan without mixing any further. Let the stuff steam for say 7-8 minutes on low flame, till the eggs get cooked. Take a slice of cheese..and spread it over the almost cooked egg. Cover the pan for few more minutes till the cheese starts melting. Switch off the gas; and the steamed egg (a dinner invite to whoever comes up with a better name..:P) is ready to be served....:)

This can be served with Bread Toast/ Chapaati...or can be had without any of these..:)

Before eating today i clicked a pic and this is how it looks...:)

7 people have something to say...:
