Hello everyone, this Girish and today I would be your chef for the day ;)

This is a very simple dish to prepare and enjoy specially when it’s raining outside and you are lazed to cook anything complex. Same situation made me prepare this recipe. It’s been raining and raining in Pune since 2-3 days. A typical Sunday with such a climate is a concoction for an amazingly lazy weekend. It was my cooking day so I decided to prepare today’s breakfast and chose one of the simplest yet tastiest dishes to go. I am egg lover since childhood. Boiled eggs, sunny side up, half fries, scrambled eggs.. you name it, I love it. Not to forget the Spicy egg curry :D

This is a go win situation for any amateur cook. You cannot go wrong with this dish. So give it a try and enjoy those lazy days.

4 eggs beaten
1 onion medium sized finely chopped
1 tomato medium sized finely chopped
1 tablespoon deseeded finely chopped green chilies
½ teaspoon mustard seeds
½ turmeric powder

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon coriander finely chopped for garnishing
Salt to taste
