Be EGGStra Creative!

There are times when after watching one full episode of Masterchef you feel kinda creative and you want to pour all that creativity out on a platter. However, when you open the fridge you cannot find too many creative ingredients or shall I say you find nothing in there. But, hey! If you have EGGS, you are sorted. Here are some creative ideas with eggs that are going to quench your thirst to be a masterchef of your kitchen!


Sunny side Up on a Slice


So, there’s bread and egg! What else do you want?


  • A slice of Bread
  • An Egg

Take a slice of bread. Use a round cutter and make a hole in the middle of the slice. Heat a tawa and keep it on low flame. Melt some butter and toast the bread slice. While it’s being toasted, break an egg just in the hole in the slice of bread. Sprinkle some salt & chilli flakes and voila!


Bird Nest



  • An Egg
  • A potato
  • Coriander branches/ Spring onions/ Lettuce or any green veggie of your choice.

Boil the egg, cut it into half and you are done for the egg part. For the nest you will need to shred a potato. After you are done shredding, put everything on a piece of cloth, squeeze out the excess water and pat dry. Add some salt, turmeric powder, and chili powder. Give it a good mix. Heat some oil and fry the shredded potato. And there you have your nest.

Take a plate and place some coriander branches or lettuce horizontally like a branch. Place the shredded potato fry over the green veggies. Just above the potato place the two halves of the egg upside down and there you have your own bird nest on a plate!


Spiced Up Eggs


We Indians have this tendency to ‘indianize’ everything. Here’s a trick with eggs.


  • Boiled Eggs
  • Chopped Onions
  • Chopped green chilis
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • Green Chutney (Optional)

Slice the boiled eggs into halves and place on a plate. Put chopped onions, tomatoes, chillies and coriander on each slice. Sprinkle some salt and there you have your own Egg chaat!
