Sometime back, one of Jose’s colleague told him, “hey, I heard your wife has a food website, so she is a great “cooker” eh?” Jose was like…”cooker”? He replied ” Yeah, she cooks well” to which that person replied “You are lucky to have a good cooker as your wife” ;) So now I’ve been tagged with the title “cooker” blogger ;)
If you are the cooker of your family ;), I’m sure that you will agree with me if I say….it take less time to cook than to decide “what to cook”. I’ve heard from many friends that they don’t mind cooking as long as they know what to cook. That decision making is the toughest part for many and consumes most of our precious time. Even I’ve the same confusion at times… egg recipes come to my rescue at these times. When I’m in doubt about what to cook or if I don’t have many choices, I always go for an egg curry. It’s easy to make and it goes with almost anything.
I’ve bookmarked this recipe long time ago, but finally made it the other day when I had no clue as to what to make.
Hope you too will enjoy this:
