Egg Stir Fry/ Egg Masala

 
 
This dish was originally developed by my husband. The only variation I did to his original recipe is the addition of green bell peppers. It’s a super easy and flexible  recipe. You can boil the eggs in advance and keep the cooked sauce mixture refrigerated up to two days until you assemble the whole dish together. For best flavors, use fresh ginger garlic pastes.

By now, the veggies should be partially cooked. If you don’t want the veggies to be crisp , cook the whole mixture for few more minutes until you get the desired texture of the veggies.
