whats not to like about egg…right?

One egg, heaps of way to have them!

One can choose to have hard boiled eggs, soft boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, poached eggs, omelette, sunny side up, fried with crispy sides… ooh many more.

Have ’em with soup, have an egg by the side, or have an egg in salad.

Apart from my routine weekend scrambled eggs (no milk please!!) cooked by hubby, I love having soft boiled eggs with kechap manis (sweet soy sauce) and a dash of white pepper or hard boiled eggs, again with kechap manis 😛

My current favourite is Cilbir or Turkish eggs!

One more dish that I love, is this Egg curry!

Curry has been a favourite for many people.

This egg curry is also known as my “default dish”.
This has been my signature dish, my ‘go to’ dish whenever I have friends over for dinner.

And I have been cooking them whenever I have extra yogurt tub, and I will always have at least a carton of eggs in my fridge.
