Indian Scrambled Eggs

I love eggs..I love them cause they are easily available.There are a million things you can do with them.They can charm any leftovers into over performing. They are healthy and filling.You can bake them,boil them,nuke them,fry them..ah the list is endless.For the sheer convenience these are the best food for people with limited time or skills in kitchen!

There is a speciality egg restaurant here in Bangalore called The EGG Factory. They have the most mindblowing unheard of egg options!!!Its the best place you can go to for a Sunday Afternoon Brunch which serves you good quality healthy food. From Egg and Toast to Egg Filled Cannelloni in tomato sauce to my all time favorite French Toast with Blueberry and Cream Cheese filling there are over 40 dishes that I promise will win you over! I OverDose on this place and the fact that their new branch has opened a kilometer from my house just ROCKS my world! One of my recent finds in this place was a dish called Akoori which is Parsi Scrambled Eggs. It is an amazing Indian version of scrambled eggs which take 5 minutes of prep and 5 minutes of cooking!

All your midnight cravings and hunger pangs can be satisfied with this recipe.You don’t have to haunt the local roadside joints for amazing indianised scrambled eggs anymore cause I have discovered the most efficient way to make this in your own kitchen.

The magic ingredient here is ..wait for it…H2O..or water..yeah..i was surprised too!
