Eggs with Caramelized onion

An Egg a day keeps the doctor away ! :)  That's what my daughter's paediatrician suggested. I should give one soft boiled egg everyday at 11 in the morning. Though some of my family members do not eggs, I buy eggs for my daughter. Today when I was boiling an egg for her, I had a craving for eggs too. Since I do not like eating just plain eggs, I made this caramelized onion and egg curry. It is very simple recipe and can be done in less than 10 minutes.

Caramelized onions give a nice sweet flavour and the egg is well coated with spices. I baked whole wheat buns yesterday. I had this egg and onion curry as a stuffing inside the bun and with lots of cheese topped. Delicious it was ! This is perfect for picnics or on the go lunch. You can pack sandwich breads/ buns and pack this egg curry separately in a box. Assemble everything together at the time of serving. Add spinach or lettuce and make it a healthy sandwich / burger


  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Medium Sized onions sliced thinly ( I used red onion )
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Red chilli powder
