BHIDA PER EDU. ( Eggs on Okra )

BHIDA PER EDU. ( Eggs on Okra )
Another Parsi favorite! A question I always asked myself as a child was ” Do Parsi’s ever eat a vegetable by itself? I mean without any meat added or eggs added to it?”
The answer is ” only when they have an upset stomach or are ill!!”
This is a very simple and easy dish to make and is a complete meal in itself. You can eat with bread or roti or as I do, with lime pickle!

( enough for 4 servings)
About 1 1/2 cups sliced bhindis. ( cut in rounds)
1/2 cup sliced onion.
1/2 ts red chili powder
1/2 ts haldi ( turmeric )
1/2 ts dhanna jeera (cumin and coriander powder)
1 ts ginger garlic paste
1-2 green chilis, deseeded in chopped fine.
Salt to taste
2 ts oil
4 eggs. ( if you want to make this healthy, and still taste good use 3 whites and 1 full egg)


Fry the onions with the green chilis and half the ginger garlic paste in oil till onions are translucent.

Add bhindis and stir.
Add red chili powder, dhanna jeera, haldi, salt and stir.
Sprinkle a little water and cover and cook for five minutes.
Meanwhile, separate the egg whites and yolks.
Beat the whites till stiff, but still fluffy.
beat the egg yolks and gently mix in whites.
Add the remaining ginger garlic paste and some salt.
When the okra is cooked, transfer in a flat, round frying pan if you cooked it in a
Put on low flame.
Drizzle the eggs all over the okra.
Sprinkle sone more water if the okra is too dry.
Close lid of frying pan and cook till the eggs are set.
Do not flip over. ( this will spoil the fluffy, frothy look of the eggs )
Serve immediately with roti or bread.
