Peppery Boiled Egg Fry

 For my first post in Cook & Bake, I thought I’d tell you about a recipe my mother taught me. This dish was prepared mostly in our house during Ramadan. Its salty, buttery and spicy. I love this to the core and hope you love it too. But let me warn you, this is a rich snack. So relish this in moderation. 😉

Serves according to how many eggs you’d eat 😉 😉


Hard Boiled Eggs  –  6 eggsSalt  –  1/4 teaspoon

Turmeric Powder  –  1/4 teaspoon

Chilli Powder  –  1/4 teaspoon

Pepper Powder  –  1/4 teaspoon

Corriander Powder  –  1/4 teaspoon

Fennel Seed Powder  –  1/4 teaspoon

Ghee / Clarified Butter  –  1 tablespoon

Note:- I added paprika one day when I made these and it was delicious! You can innovate too 🙂


1. Make small vertical slits on the eggs.
2. Rub salt, turmeric, chiili, pepper, corriander and cumin powder on to the eggs with very little water.


    Make sure to get these into the slits as well.


3. Heat ghee / clarified butter in a wok on medium fire.  Add in the eggs and stir fry them until the sides turn lightly brown.
5. Get a serving dish ready. Scoop the fried eggs on to the dish and garnish.
