World Egg Day 2015 is upon us. It is the day of the year when we egg-lovers like to celebrate that one protein and nutrient-rich ingredient that tastes good fried or scrambled.
The 20th World Egg Day is being observed on 9 October and to help you celebrate it, we have compiled the recipes for some of the easiest and tastiest egg dishes from around the world:
Disco Fry Egg (India)
Mostly found on the streets of Mumbai, Disco Fry Egg is among the tastiest egg dishes and can be made easily at home.
According to Helengraves, this is the best recipe to make Disco Fry Egg:
2 small soft round rolls, 1 large soft round roll, or 1 hot dog bun
split 3 green chillies, sliced (or more or less to taste)
Finely sliced spring onions
Heat a frying pan or skillet over a medium high heat and add some oil (couple of tablespoons should do it). When hot, add half the chillies and fry briefly. Add the eggs and break them up a bit. Add the rest of the chillies, then sprinkle on a generous pinch each of chilli powder, garam masala, turmeric and salt.
Put the split bun on top, drizzle over a little more oil, and add another dusting of all the spices. Use a potato masher or similar shaped implement to press down on the buns so they are smooshed into the egg. When it's fairly flat, flip it over and squash down again. Flip again and squash, then flip again and squash. The final result should be flat as a pancake and crisping at the edges.
Cut the eggy pancake in half down the centre. Fold each half into a sandwich, put on a plate, sprinkle with coriander and spring onion, and serve.
If "make Omelettes like the Spanish do" is not a common phrase, we would like to make it one because if there is one thing the rest of the world should learn from Spain, it is their Omelette recipe. With the surprise element of fried potatoes, they make for a great treat for the kids and adults alike.
