Egg pepper fry

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.
