Spicy Egg Fry

In the hustle bustle of modern life, people find it difficult to cook up elaborate recipes. We look out of quick wins that soothe our taste buds after a stressful day. A couple of my bachelor friends requested for recipes that are quick and easy to whip up. So both the needs combined together, we decided to come up with some easy beginners recipes - that are soul satisfying in both the ways.

Here is a recipe with hard boiled egg that takes you a maximum of 5 minutes to make if you have boiled eggs with you. It is a spicy kick to the normal boiled eggs.


  1. Egg - 2 no.s
  2. Oil - 1 tbsp
  3. Chilly powder - 2 tsp
  4. Salt to taste

Take 2 eggs in a saucepan with water just enough to cover the eggs and bring it to a boil. Simmer on medium flame for ten minutes and switch off the flame. Transfer the eggs to a bowl of tap water and let it cool. Peel the egg under running tap water - makes it easier for the shells to come off. Using a knife create slits on the egg so that the flavors can seep in.

Pour oil into a pan. Once the oil is warm, add a tsp of chilly powder. Just when the color starts to darken, add the eggs. Keep tossing the eggs in the oil, so that the entire egg is coated. Add sufficient salt and fry this for another 2-3 minutes on medium flame continuously tossing it.

Transfer this to a plate and devour it either as a snack in itself or along with bread of your choice.

You could drop the same eggs into a curry if you choose to make one or even add fried onions along with the eggs for an extra zing.
