An ‘eggs’cellent recipe

Eggs are a versatile protein that can be had any time of the day or night. Eggs cooked in coconut oil are to die for. The soft scrambled eggs combined with the aroma of coconut oil along with shallots are heavenly. It was one of the dishes my mom would turn to when she’d had a long day and wanted to make a simple dinner.

Eggs taste great with toast, but my mom would make this with a flatbread called chapati. These scrambled eggs are a staple on the menu on most of the street food carts in Kerala as well, as the taste is amazing.
