South Indian Thali – Egg Pepper Fry

Starting the second week of blogging marathon #91 with mini thali as theme.Today’s version of thali is an interesting one and make it whenever I  have no stock of veggies except onion and tomato.

The thali has
1.Steamed basmathi rice
2.Whole moong dhal fry
4.Egg pepper fry (recipe follows)
5.Homemade vathal (fryums)
6.Onion Pakora

Egg pepper fry is a semi dry and quick dish,you can make in it less than 15 minutes,if the eggs are boiled.This fry tastes excellent with simple rasam or dhal rice.
