Simple Boiled Egg Sandwich 🥪 So many of you have made this from our live session and the others have asked for the recipe so I thought it'd be good to type it out and keep it for a lazy day. It is probably the most delicious way to eat a TAWA toasted Sandwich with really simple ingredients. I did this for a live session for @sbowindia and we had it on our menu but this is a little improvised as I didn't have some ingredients. Please do use what you have, if you have any doubts, do put them in the comments 🙌 Ingredients: 2 boiled eggs (boil it for 8 mins, once the water starts boiling. Peel and keep aside) Salt and pepper to taste You can add chopped: Spring onion, celery, bellpeppers – I only had spring onions so I used that BUT you need to add – chopped green chillies and coriander (they add loads of flavour) 1tsp of any chilli sauce 1tsp of mustard 2tsp of mayo / cheese spread (whatever you have) 4 slices of bread Butter (as much as you like) Method: 1. Seperate your egg yolks and whites 2. Chop egg whites. Keep aside. 3. Grate egg yolks, add all the chopped veggies, salt, pepper, sauces, mayo, and mix well till a nice pasty consistency. 4. Heat your tawa, add a few drops of oil and butter. Keep on a medium to low flame. 5. Butter your bread – one side inside and one side outside 6. Add your chopped egg whites into the yolk mixture. Taste it, add whatever you need. 7. Spread the mixture, add a cheese slice and close the sandwich 8. Toast it on the tawa on both sides, cut into half and serve warm! Goes best with ketchup and chips on the side! Swipe 👉 to see the video at the end! Chef tip: you can make this with chopped paneer also if you want it to be veg. Experiment with the veggies you have in your fridge. Hope you enjoyed this really easy recipe!
