Instructions
  1. Spread mustard paste on both slices on bread. Use a shot glass or cookie cutter to cut a hole in the middle of one slice. Keep aside.
  2. Align the spinach leaves and use the same cutter to cut a hole in the centre and keep the leaves aside.
  3. Use the same cutter to cut a hole in the centre of a cheese slice. Keep aside.
  4. Slice tomatoes. Keep aside.
  5. On the plain slice of bread without the hole, place the slice of cheese with the hole as the first layer of the sandwich.
  6. Put slices of tomato over the cheese, leaving the hole in the middle empty. Tear basil leaves and place over tomatoes. Sprinkle some black pepper powder.
  7. Place the spinach leaves on top of the tomatoes, aligning the hole of the spinach with that of the cheese slice. Keep aside.
  8. In a bowl, whisk an egg with salt and pepper. Keep aside.
  9. Heat vegetable oil in a non stick pan. Add the whisked egg to the pan and allow it to cook until it sets. Now cut a hole in the middle and trim the sides of the egg to match the size of the bread slice.
  10. Place the sandwich with the bread side down and spinach on top in a pan. Align the cooked egg with the hole in the spinach leaves. Top with the cut bread slice, aligning all the three round cuts. This creates a deep hole in the middle.
  11. Break an egg into the hole. Cover with a fitted lid and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat until the egg white sets. Serve hot with mustard and sweet potato fries.

Eggs are quick to cook, the cheapest and the most easily available protein. They are loaded with nutrients and eating cage-free, organic eggs is great for health!

2. Peel Boiled Eggs in a second..!

Toss them  with potatoes & Herbs.  For hard boiled eggs you just need to take room temperature eggs in a saucepan and fill it till the eggs are completely immersed in water. Add salt and boil for 6 minutes on high heat. Then turn off the heat and keep the eggs covered for a minute. Pop them into ice water. Crack the wider end, the shell will simply slide off in a second.

Chop up the eggs and toss them in some butter and boiled potato with herbs.

 

3. Try Bread Bhurji Bombs

You can make Bhurji the old fashioned way, just fry some onion, chillies and tomatoes in a pan. Break two eggs into the pan, add salt, coriander leaves and the secret ingredient, pav bhaji masala to finish. Then…

Love good old fried bread rolls? This is similar. Just replace the potato stuffing with the bhurji.

Store bought bread is sprinkled with water, then pressed to squeeze out the water, homemade bhurji is stuffed in the center the bread is sealed on all sides like a ball and deep fried. This can be a glorious Sunday brunch for family and friends.

 

4. French it Up – Crepes

If you are looking to cook a fancy brunch for your loved ones, try some crepes!

You can make ‘em sweet or you can make ‘em for a filling savoury brunch. For sweet drizzle some honey and brown butter with chopped wanuts. For savoury simply fold it with some sautéed spinach and cheese.

All you need to do is, mix one egg with half cup refined flour, half cup milk, 1 teaspoon butter and salt. Whisk well. Heat a pan, brush with better and make a thin crepe with the mixture.

 

5. Poach it Right!

Use an egg that sinks in water, which means it is fresh. Then break it into simmering water with a drop of vinegar OR into a food grade plastic wrap and tie it into a potli with a thread or rubber band then put it into simmering water.

Allow it cook for a minute and a half, then pop it out, onto a paper towel. If you are using plastic wrap, then cut the plastic wrap and pop it on a paper towel.

Drizzle some light soy and chopped spring onion leaves.
