Today being World Egg day, this is my small tribute to this versatile, healthy, yet inexpensive Superfood.
My husband happens to be a military officer. So it goes without saying that his job is extremely demanding in terms of physical fitness and his nutritional requirements have to be given the due importance. Breakfast for him is invariably eggs on most days to meet his protein requirements.
One day he told me that he was bored of the usual omelettes/boiled/scrambled/poached/ fried eggs. He still wanted eggs, but hoped for something different. Considering that he has to have his breakfast really early and I am too lazy to take too much effort that early, I did not want to make anything too complicated and tried this recipe in an Appe pan a couple of years ago. I originally made this recipe with crumbed bread or powdered toast; but now, I more or less always make it with oats instead of the bread as they are much healthier. Also, the one with bread used to come up a little dense.
They don’t taste much different from what Kangana Ranaut calls “Indian French Toast” in Queen, but sometimes new packaging makes all the difference 😛
Ingredients (for 1 batch of 7 Appe):
1 green chilly, finely chopped;
½ cup rolled oats,
A pinch of Ajwain (Carom seeds),
1/4” piece of ginger, grated;
Salt, to taste;
