Egg pepper fry

By | October 13, 2016

This is an easy side dish to have with some rice. Even if it’s easy, the caramelised onion gives yummy taste.



Eggs – 4 hard boiled

Onion – 1/2 cup thinly sliced

Fennel seeds – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – few

Salt – as required

Pepper powder – 1 to 2 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp


  • Peel off the skin of hard boiled eggs and cut into half.
  • Heat oil in a pan and crackle fennel seeds.
  • Add onions, curry leaves and sauté till golden brown.
  • Add salt and pepper. Stir for few seconds.
  • Add eggs the cut side facing down. This helps the yolk not come out of the white.
  • Let it stay for a minute and flip it.
  • Let it stay till brown spots appear.
  • Switch off. Serve.



  1. Adjust pepper powder as required.

    Can I do this without curry leaves (I don’t have any in my cupboard). Or can I substitute fenugreek leaves (which I do have)?

            If you can give me an email add, I’ll upload and send it in a while. But it’s taken under artificial light (shorter days this time of year 🙂 ) And no curry leaves included. I can send you several shots and then you can just choose what you like.

Appreciate your feedback
