Fried Egg Sambal

Some say they are a work of pranksters, some say they are created by aliens who are trying to communicate some sort of message and a third theory says they are part of a natural phenomenon for which an explanation will be found sooner or later.

Wondering what am I talking about??

A Crop Circle...

As the name suggests, these are some intriguing circular designs made by flattening standing crops in a field. i.e with some their stems bent down, not cut to make these patterns.

I was reading about 'Crop Circles' in a magazine today and was amazed by the mystery surrounded around them.

Here is the glimpse of one such crop circle formed in Windmill Hills, Wiltshire, England in 2002.

Some believers and naysayers say they are work of God, but the truth remains still elusive - its a mystery unsolved!!

Now, talking about today's recipe. This has been in my bookmarks for ages now, and being a sunday, I wanted to have something simple yet yummy!

Meena's Fried Egg Sambal...

Adapted from here.


5 eggs
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1 medium Tomato, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1/2 tsp Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tsp Oil


1. Heat a tsp of oil in a flat pan and fry the egss one after other, seasoning with salt and pepper. Set aside.

2. In a wok, heat the remaining tsp of oil and saute some garlic & onions, until brown. Add turmeric, chilli powder and coriander powder and fry for couple of seconds.

3. Drop in chopped tomatoes and cook for few minutes, until mushy. I also added a tsp of milk at this stage for a different flavor.

4. Finally mix in the fried eggs and coat the tomato-onion mixture around them. I served this yummy dish as a side with store-bought garlic tandoori naan!

One can add a tbsp of 'tomato paste' as specified in the original recipe.

Off this goes to dear Ruth's 'Bookmarked Recipes' event!

Have a great week ahead!
