Chili Egg (egg Cooked With Capsicum, Onion And Soya Sauce)

I guess I could think of this recipe just because I am born and brought up in Kolkata. Bengali people are known for their love for food and they are the one who like to and taste different cuisines across the world. Chinese cuisine, (better I should say) Indian Chinese cuisine has been favourite among Bengali people….May be because it is primarily non- vegetarian. In college, I remember my friends used to treat us with chili chicken and fried rice on their birthdays. That was the standard menu. On one of my friends’ birthday treat, I had this chili eggs instead of chili chicken and found it equally good….In fact more convenient. Eggs are easily available and you can store them in your refrigerator for days. Moreover, It can be served as Side dish or even as starters for weekend get together.
