I just can’t imagine my pantry without potatoes and eggs. These two come handy whenever I run out of ideas or in hurry to fix a meal. Like potatoes, eggs are also versatile. You can have them in breakfast, lunch, dinner and even in snack. A simple egg omellete can be a protein-rich breakfast, quick lunch or easy dinner or it can be a snack in jiffy.

Hyderabadi Anday ka Khagina Recipe
You know, this Hyderabadi Anday ka Khagina is much similar to Turkish Egg Dish, Menemen. I don’t know how this recipe has landed and got adapted here in Hyderabad, but that is what food is all about. Anday or andey or ande means ‘eggs’ and Khagina means seasoned omellete like dish.
This egg khagina is much similar to egg burji recipe. In egg burji we will scramble the eggs, in khagina we will leave them without scrambling.
Main ingredients needed to make Anday ka Khagina are,
Eggs: Rich and easy available source of protein and Vitamin B2, B6 and B12.
Onions: These will give nice gravy base to the recipe. Add more, if you don’t want to make dal or any other side dish to go with this. In that way, you can mix the onion gravy with rice and relish the eggs o side.
Green Chili: Adds heat to the recipe.
Roasted Coriander Powder: Brings aroma to the recipe.
Ginger-Garlic Paste: Brings flavour to the recipe.
Tips and Variations in making Egg Khagina Recipe
- If in hurry, pressure cook sliced onions with rest of the ingredients (leaving eggs) for one whistle.
- When onion mixture turn soft add eggs. Cook till done.
- My Mom-in-law adds chopped tomatoes, which bring color and flavour.
- You can even add garam masala for extra flavour.

I make egg curry with boiled eggs and love it. I really liked your idea of breaking the eggs in curry and cooking it. Have one question, when you break the egg,the doesn't spread ? does it coagulate immediately ? I really want to try this version
