An universal favourite and a great comfort food, this dish is very easy and simple to make. The best thing to do when you are hungry is to just crack some eggs and scramble it with a dash of salt and pepper and voila you have an appetizing meal in front of you. It an be had as it is or with some bread.
This is my version where I added some assorted bell peppers along with other ingredients to make it more colourful and appealing. I guess you can let your imaginations run wild and add anything you fancy. The end product is simply delicious. I love having it with parathas too. Please check below a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
