Egg Bhurji

Egg bhurji is inspired by South Asian cuisine. They add spices in everything man! I never tried this just because my mind was not accepting the idea of having too much spices in the egg for breakfast but then I tried a cheese omelette at one of my best friend’s home where she put cumin and coriander in it and OMG Yessss! it was great. So from there I got inspired to try this at home and it came out so perfect. Here is the recipe for you, if you are traumatised by the idea of having all the spices in egg, believe me its not bad at all, go with my believe and try this ❤ I am sure you will love it!

Chicken Club Sandwiches

There are several ways of making Club sandwiches but here I am gonna tell you the recipe of one of my favourites and the one I grew up eating, Chicken club sandwich. It is a very common snack sandwich in Pakistan which is served at almost every restaurant in the country. You can get it at Lahore International Airport as well.

It is a 2 storey sandwich, one layered with creamy chicken filling and the other one with boiled egg, lettuce and tomato. Tastes yummy with hot fries and coleslaw.

-Take out the toasts from oven, let them sit on a cooling rack until we get our eggs poached.

-For poaching the eggs, fill your 22cm saucepan half with water and bring it to a boil. Add distilled vinegar. Now crack the egg in a small bowl and very carefully take it near the boiling water. Dip half of your bowl in the water and leave the egg in the water. Do same with other eggs. Let them cook for 30 seconds and then remove the saucepan from the heat and cover it for exact 3 minutes.

-Now with a slotted spoon take the eggs out and put them on the plate.
