Eggstraordinary Dishes

This one's for egg-eaters, from memories created during my childhood that was spent experimenting with eggs (yes, I was experimenting with food that early..)

Sprouted Omelette

Ingredients: Sprouted Moong Beans, 2 eggs, 1 tsp salt, 1 chilli, blender, finely chopped onions and tomatoes

You want to ensure that you have a non-stick frying pan for this.

Drop the contents of the egss into the blender. Add the sprouted moong beans, salt and chilli. If you like, add some mint leaves as well. Blend.

Heat a little oil in a pan (2 tsp). When the oil is hot, fry finely chopped onions and tomatoes for 1 minute. As it continues to roast, pour the egg batter from the blender.

As your omelette takes shape, ensure that you keep rolling the frying pan so as to ensure consistency in the density of your omelette. This should happen for 2-3 minutes, after which you'll want to roll over on two edges (like a dosa) and drop it into your plate.

If you want to nullify all the nutrition in your omelette, have it with some ketchup.

Water Poach

Boil water in your frying pan. When the water is boiling (bubbles will rise up to the surface and burst), hold the egg up over the water. Holding it in your left hand, take an upside down spoon and hit the egg with the handle of the spoon, gently enough so the contents don't splash all over, but hard enough to crack it. When cracks have appeared over 1/4th of the egg surface, put your spoon aside and use your hands to split the egg and drop the contents gently into the frying pan.

This is the healthiest possible preparation of egg - zero oil. If you do it carefully enough, you will be able to lift the contents and put it onto your plate. Its alright if some water spills over to your plate - it will be nutritious. With the excess water, add salt and pepper and have it as a protein drink.

Please leave comments on the result of your experiments.
