EGG - another new dimension


Welcome. In this post I’ll be sharing how to fry eggs in a way that is a bit different from what some of us are used to. By glamming the eggs up with some veggies, we end up with delicious egg.

Ingredients

2 Eggs
Vegetable oil
1 tomato

1 scotch bonnet pepper
1 chilli
1 green pepper

½ onion (or 1 small onion)
Seasoning cubes
Salt

 

Procedure

Chop the tomato, scotch bonnet, green pepper, chilli and onion.

Break the eggs in a bowl and beat. I love to add milk to my egg while whisking to make it lighter.
Place a clean frying pan on the stove.

Add 2 – 3 tsp of vegetable oil.

Saute the onions in the hot veg oil.

Add the chopped ingredients to the onions and fry till they are soft.

Pour the content of the frying pan into the egg and mix.

Return the frying pan to stove and add 1 or ½ tsp of veg oil (just little oil).

Pour the egg into the frying pan and reduce the heat on the stove so it cooks slowly.

Now I’m going to explain two different methods you could use to make sure both sides of the egg are cooked.

Method 1:

Just cover the frying pan to avoid heat loss; the heat cooks the visible side of the egg. (Remember your stove should be on low heat)

Method 2:

After pouring the egg into the frying pan, reduce the heat and cook until the egg is no longer runny. Let the side (sitting on the frying pan) cook for a while (1 – 1½ minutes).

Get a large flat plat and transfer the egg into the plate. (Do not turn the egg; let the side facing up in the frying pan still face up in the plate. It’s quite easy to pull off.)

Then cover the plate with the frying pan, flip so that the side that was facing up is now invisible (facing the frying pan).

Cook and serve.
Serve with bread, yam, plantain, noodles or whatever you can think of.
