In my opinion, eggs are the most versatile gift of nature to us..So many ways to consume the cute lil thingies. There are innumerable recipes in which it’s used, right from recipes of starters to desserts. In a way, I’m obsessed with eggs..can have them every single day and never get bored of them.
I guess I share this particular passion of mine with my darling Frank Reynolds (Previously mentioned in Garlicky Shrimp Post ) who has this insane fixation with eggs..esp. raw eggs..

Weird fixations apart, I want to share a lovely recipe of Eggs..Anda masala. My dad always called it ‘Anda Maharani’ for some reason , when in fact nothing called so exists.
So basically it’s my mother’s indigenous recipe of cooking eggs in a bhaaji (sabzi) format. Nevertheless we found the title ‘Anda Maharani’ so adorable that the name got stuck for years to come.
The recipe specially comes in handy when my fridge and kitchen is low on supplies & I’m staring at the kitchen and wondering about the million dollar question ‘आज काय जेवण बनवायचे ?’
I really thank mom for this recipe as it made our ‘not so interesting’ lunch breaks during school totally worth waiting for!
