Welcome to my Blog

Hmm you'll say...yet another food blog! And I'll beg to differ, although I must say my recipes are not hi-funda, and sometimes the pictures do not do justice to them (I'm working on that) but you'll find them extremely easy to cook, hassle free and down right delicious.
So if you are a newbie in the kitchen department or has not ventured into the kitchen for some strange reason (like me)...then you have come to the right place.

Happy Cooking!

Khagina

...Or EGGS WITH ONIONS is a traditional Hyderabadi dish, made mainly in breakfast. The best way to get a good taste of it, is to make it with less onions and more eggs....and of course the milk.

Ingredients:
5 eggs
3 average onions
2 tsp oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp ginger-garlic powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 cup milk
1 green chilli
Cilantro for garnishing


Method:
Heat oil in a deep pan and slip in the thinly sliced onions, saute them till they start to get a brown tinge. Add the ginger-garlic paste and keep stirring. Add the turmeric powder, salt and milk and lastly red chilli powder.

Break the eggs and let them cook on top of the onions. Slit a green onion and pop it on the eggs. Keep checking to avoid the onions sticking to the pan. After about 10 min's or so...or if the eggs seem to cook through, break them with a wooden spatula.

Avoid cutting them into too small pieces, otherwise when you finally stir them together with the onions they break even more and just disappear.


Finally add cilantro and serve hot with rotis or parathas.

Hello Aisha,

Thanks for the kind words...when I started my blog, I noticed that there were not many food blogs on Hyderabadi food. So my main goal was to contribute from my side as well as learn something new in return. And Alhamdullilah I came across so many new recipes ever since I started browsing and blogging, its wonderful :p

Regards,
Lubna.
