Since we were under lockdown for the Coronavirus and advised to stay at HOME, we were just lazying around listening to music, reading the newspapers and chatting.

Somehow we reached the topic of food, our favorite topic some might say, but ‘cooking food‘ to be exact.

Most people who know me would know that I don’t usually cook. 

I can bake, but I don’t cook!

There are enough people at home to cook and always plenty of food, so I don’t need to. 

But then Mom says you’ll need to cook in the future and I say ‘I can cook!’. Seriously, I know how to make some yummy masala potatoes and I can fry eggs, boil rice, and also make tea and coffee to drink; so no one would really starve. 

Mom says I need to practice more! And soon I get conned into making mom’s Boiled Egg chilly fry. It’s one of our favorite easy dishes, but normally she and dad always make it.

She had planned on preparing it for dinner, but now I have to make it. 

Anyways, if you’re wondering what to make for dinner using boiled eggs that’s easy, my mom’s chilly fry is the answer.

What are the ingredients in my mom’s boiled egg chilly fry?

All you need is 6 boiled eggs, 4 large onions, 4 medium tomatoes, 8 green chillies, a teaspoon of turmeric and a teaspoon of salt.
