Egg Lava is a unique street food that I discovered in the bylanes of Bihar. It is a popular Bihari snack that goes by the local nomenclature of ‘Fried Poach’. Egg Lava is my personal rendition of this drool-worthy appetiser! This dish combines the hot chilli flavours with the gooey egg yolk and voila! you have lava eruptions right on your palate!
A brilliant, easy-to-make recipe that can be eaten at breakfast or as an evening snack, this fiery, volcanic receipt is my eureka formula! Let me know how it works for you! 😉

Serves 1
2 eggs
1 tbsp butter/oil
1 tbsp chopped onion
1 tbsp chopped tomato
1 tsp chopped green chillies
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper powder
1 pinch chaat masala powder
1 pinch oregano flakes

Step 1: Heat butter/oil in a large ladle. Quickly crack the eggs and add them directly into the butter one after the other.
Step 2: Reduce heat and add the chopped onion, tomato, green chilli, salt, black pepper powder, chaat masala powder and oregano flakes on top of the eggs.
Step 3: Scrape the sides of the eggs and with the help of a tablespoon, quickly turn it upside down in the ladle.
Step 4: Let it cook on low flame for another minute. Switch off the heat and transfer it in  a bowl with the veggies on top. Serve hot; this time, you would not require anything else!
