Recipe Notes

Tips: 1) First of all, beat the eggs properly before stir-frying. Because if not beaten up, egg whites and yolks get fried separately. 2) Moreover, you can avoid using capsicum if you don't like. 3) Moreover, I didn't use ginger garlic paste as I like it that way. If you prefer you can add half tsp of it after sauteing onions. 4) Also, add a dash of lemon juice at last if you wish to.

Preparation:

  • Beat five large eggs and keep aside.
  • Chop onion, tomato, capsicum and green chillies.
