Egg Chat

Egg is one thing that my fridge won't be complete of. Most of my breakfast items include Egg and Brown Bread. As Egg is full of protein (8g) it is very good and healthy to eat an egg per day for adults and kids. That's why my breakfast menu items will have some or the other form of the egg. Though Omelet is my favorite form of egg and Boiled Egg is the least form that any one want to eat (at least in my house). But this is one of the best form, so I have started liking it and experimenting with it to like it, so that I can be role model for my kids to like the Boiled Egg. Boiled Egg Breakfast Burrito is one entry that got much appreciation in my family and from my readers. On the same note today, I have spiced up the boiled egg with chat masala and filled my breakfast plate with the 'Egg Chat'. Here sharing the recipe for you, Enjoy!

Egg Chat

Boiled Egg - 1
Diced Onion - 1/4 cup
Diced Bell Pepper - 1/3 cup
Tomato - 1 ( medium)
Chaat Masala - 2 tsp
Ammchoor - 1 tsp ( Tangy Spice or Dry Mango Powder)
salt - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp ( enough to spray the pan)
cilantro - for garnish

How to Make it:

  1. Heat the non stick pan and add the oil ( or spray evenly with PAM)
  2. Add the onions to the pan followed by the bell pepper and Saute them on high for 3 min.
  3. Add salt and Red chili Powder and keep it on high for another 2 min
  4. Slice the Boiled Egg evenly (with Egg Slicer).
  5. First arrange half of the egg slices on the plate. Spread the onion and bell pepper mixture as layer.
  6. Top another layer with tomato slices. Mix the Ammchoor and Chaat Masala and sprinkle on top.
  7. Arrange remaining egg slices on top. Garnish with Cilantro and Serve it as a Snack or Breakfast.

I usually add this to my breakfast plate along with fresh fruit juice as a complete balanced morning diet.

If you don't have Ammchoor handy, use 2 or 3 drops of vinegar instead. you can use lime juice, but I don't prefer lime juice with Boiled Egg.
