Mint Flavored Egg Roast

Pin It Now!
To me egg is the most ultimate comfort food.There are so many variations to its preparation.Toasts with egg is a hot favorite for breakfast in so many households and eateries.Here is a nice spicy version of the eggs roasted with spices a great option for a later meal.Addition of mint instantly adds fantastic aroma and flavor to this egg roast.Makes for a nice dish by itself or served as a side with rice or breads.Egg is a good source of protein and vitamins like B12 but is also a source of cholesterol,if you love eggs too much then just discard the yolk or consider eating it in moderation.This recipe was featured at Honestcooking.

Ingredients
6 boiled eggs
1.5 cups chopped onion
1 large vine ripe tomato chopped(cook in the microwave)
1 tsp each of grated ginger and garlic
3-4 tbsp oil
Fistful of mint leaves-about 3 mint sprigs
Salt as per taste

Dry Spices
2 tsp cayenne powder
2 tsp cumin coriander powder(Deer brand)
1/2 tsp sadaf garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Method
