Egg Curry

Egg burji , Boiled Egg, Omlette ….. what next ? Let’s try some egg curry this time! Do you know Eggs are good source of vitamin D ? An essential vitamin that most of us lack. A lack of vitamin D increases our risk for a range of conditions including brittle bones and cancer. Vitamin D supplementation is highly recommended by Pediatric associations for infants from birth onwards. As suggested by my ped , apart from the food sources i also give my toddler a vitamin D supplement.

“Sunday Ho Ya Monday, Roz Khao Ande” …. – courtesy NECC , i have been watching this ADD ever since my childhood. As a kid i loved the Yolks ! I used to give away the egg whites for yolks, to my siblings. And now i continue to do it with my son ,coz he just doesn’t like yolk. He says ‘White for me, Yellow for you’.

You ‘ll have to time it right for a perfect hard boiled egg ! Perfect hard boiled eggs will take somewhere between 15-17 mins.
