                      EGG CHILLI RECIPE

              Egg chili / spicy chili egg in Chinese style is a great experiment that gives me lots of appreciation from my family. Since eggs are favorite of many vegetarians and egg lovers too,   egg curry or roasted egg is the most loved main course curry in most of the homes. In most of the countries, eggs are added in their everyday meal and we always search for the best dishes with egg that goes well with breakfast and dinner.
                    The spicy chili egg is a side dish based gravy with hard boiled eggs which can be prepared in 10 minutes. The blending of spices and sauces with the crispy fried eggs gives an excellent taste and texture to this gravy. This is a perfect Chinese dish mainly for vegetarians and egg lovers.  If you are an egg lover, do give it a try.  You will love this for sure.. Here is my recipe for how to make Chinese egg chili.
