Egg mania!

Eggs are a staple diet throughout our country and have always proved to be a winner whenever we need a quick breakfast or a snack. With time they have been experimented and used in various recipes and travelled across the country acquiring different forms, flavours and taste. Recall the time when our moms tried to induce eggs in our diet as half boiled or full boiled but the young and stupid us were completely oblivious of its presence in other delicious forms and flavours. With time we were served with omelette and half fried and we gradually fell in for it. Since then we have never said no to this multi-purpose food in our diets.
