I love eggs, eggs are cheap, healthy and a great source of protein for the kids. Eggs are also very versatile; you can have them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They are also great for snacks and school lunches. Boy! Have I sold you on eggs?
I know there’s a controversy surrounding eggs on whether yolk is good or not, is it healthy cholesterol or not. Research keeps changing on it but here’s what we know when it comes to eggs, an egg contains 213 mg of cholesterol and while there are no guidelines for children on their cholesterol intake, keeping them within the adult guidelines (300 mg each day) means that eating 1 egg a day or every other day is fine as long as the other food items your child is eating are not high in cholesterol. I always keep a few boiled eggs in the refrigerator and give the kids at least one egg a day or every other day.
The days I am running late in prepping dinner, I make this recipe and dinner is ready in 5 mins (provided I already have boiled eggs!).
Here’s the recipe:
5 boiled eggs
1 tbsp cooking oil
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp coriander powder
Salt to taste
Cilantro leaves to garnish
1) Cut the boiled eggs in half splitting the yolk.
2) Cut the shallots and dice the tomatoes.
3) Place a frying fan on medium heat and add the oil.
4) Add the shallots and fry them till they are translucent about 2-3 minutes.
5) Add the diced tomatoes, turmeric, coriander powder to the shallots and sauté for a minute.
6) Add the boiled eggs and fry for another minute or two.
7) Garnish with cut cilantro leaves and serve with rice.
