Bachelor's Dish-Egg Thokku

When some of my bachelor friends came to know about my foodblog,they have asked me to post some bachelor dishes.One of them lives in Japan.So he dosen't get all Indian ingrediants there.He has given me the list of what he can get there.Here it goes,

tomato, potato, onion (only big), carrot, mullangi, cabbage, califlower( looks like califlower... ) and all sorts of NV (this is default),some masal powders, konda kadalai, dhaal, passi payaru, mustard, chilli powder, turmeric powerd, pepper powder thru net.

So to help them ,
I am posting simple recipes under Bachelor Dish which takes less than an hour.

Ingrediants (for 1 person)
  1. small onion-1 finely chopped
  2. medium tomato-1 finely chopped
  3. Green chillies-2 chopped
  4. Cilantro/Corriander leaves-2 or 3 stripes finely chopped.
  5. Egg-1 or 2
  6. chicken-2 pieces cooked and shredded(optional)
  7. Powders-turmeric,red chilli,pepper
  8. For Seasoning-oil,mustard seeds,curry leaves,split urad dhal.


My Bachelor friends,try this dish with the ingrediants you have on hand
  1. Heat a pan,add oil and do the seasoning.
  2. After mustard splutters,add green chillis then the onions and fry for 2 mins.
  3. Add tomatoes.Fry for 3 mins.
  4. Add the egg and scramble it.Add the powdered items too.It takes 4 mins or so.
  5. Add the chicken (optional) and mix it well with the rest of the mixture.
  6. Salt it.Remove from heat and add chopped cilantro .
  7. Serve hot with rice(sambar/rasam),chappatis,parathas.

Hi Rashmi

I tried the Bread Masal yesterday ( as I had ingredients to make ' try out only this item ), it came out really well & was a hit @ home.
Thanks a lot
