Tale from the Office Cafeteria

“Every day you learn something new.” I had heard that long back, and had also forgotten it long back. Used to remember that when I learned to play Quake in college, remembered it when I was in training in office, remembered it when I was learning the nitty-grittys of the corporate life, and then forgot it for a long long time until yesterday – during lunch at the office cafeteria.

I got an amazing lesson on how to cook egg curry within 10-15 minutes, or a better way to put it – a bachelor’s way to cook egg curry. I’ll present the recipe in a succinct manner:

  1. Boil Eggs.
  2. Cut onions, tomato – heat, mix, pour water to make gravy.
  3. Drop the eggs in the tomato, onion gravy!

Voila! You have the egg curry ready, without a doubt the fastest way to make egg curry, and without a doubt the fastest way to put me off an egg-curry diet 😦

    Your Canteen’s way is much better than mine! It goes thus:

    1. Boil Eggs. Keep Ready in a plate.
    2. Have Gravy ready in a big handi (no problem if its un-salted, or is oily or even from yesterday’s chana masala)
    3. When the Employees come up for lunch, take an egg, put in a plastic cup, pour some gravy on top. Tadannnnnn…..Egg Curry is ready!

    P.S: I’ll tell about our canteen’s “Egg Bujji” some other time 😐

    aah boiling eggs is too much work ..
    I wud suggest puttin in raw eggs along with the onions and tomatoes πŸ˜›
    it wud taste better, wont need much water for gravy
    and yah .. some tadka initially and masalas might actually make it edible πŸ˜€

    obelix, with the blogroll down, there were times when I had way extra time! thank god it is back… and how come everybody is giving you gyaan in the subsequent comments? πŸ˜›

    Rama, tell me you tried cooking egg curry and that is what happened, and now since you have had the misfortune of eating that, you are making others eat that by publicizing it πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

    RPS, thanks.

    kiran, I don’t think obelix would not know how to subscribe to a blog.
