Egg Nests

Hindi: anda
You should always stack your fridge with at least a dozen of them. Why? Handiest food to have around! Kids are hungry? Make some egg sandwiches. Guests come in, make an egg curry or egg biryani. You are hungry? Poach an egg and have it topped with stir fried veggies – perfect protein source for the body! Check the freshness – keep a raw egg in a bowl of water. Fresh eggs will stay at the bottom while stale eggs stand on end or float.

Level Of Cooking : High


  • Eggs 2

  • Coriander roots chopped1 tablespoon

  • Garlic chopped1 clove

  • Fresh red chillies roughly chopped3

  • Salt to taste

  • Black peppercorns crushed6-7

  • Oil 4 tablespoons

  • Onion roughly chopped1 medium

  • Red capsicum 1/2 inch pieces1 medium

  • Yellow capsicum 1/2 inch pieces1 medium

  • Green capsicum 1/2 inch pieces1 medium

  • Mushrooms chopped5-6


Step 1

Crush coriander roots, garlic, fresh red chillies, salt and crushed peppercorns in a mortar with a pestle. Break eggs in a bowl and whisk lightly.

Step 2

Heat two tablespoons oil in a pan. Add the crushed mixture and sauté. Add onion and the three coloured capsicums, mushrooms and salt and cook for two to three minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

Step 3

Heat a little oil in another pan. Make a cone with gateway paper with a very small hole in the pointed end. Pour the eggs into this cone and move it above the surface of the pan so that a trail of egg flows into it and sets in threads.

Step 4

Keep moving the cone to make three to four crisscross layers of threads. Using a spatula, transfer the nest onto an absorbent paper and make more nests similarly. Place the nests on a flat surface, place some of the mixed vegetables over each and fold the sides over.

Step 5

Serve immediately.
