This is the simplest egg curry to prepare.

Eggs- 4
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder- 1/2 tsp
Oil- 1 tbsp
Curry Leaves- 1 
Onion- 1
Ginger Garlic Paste- 1 tsp
Salt to Taste
Pepper Powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder- 1/4 tsp

1. Heat 1 tbsp oil and sear the eggs in turmeric and chilli powder and slice them in half.
2. To the remaining oil add curry leaves, onions, ginger garlic paste, salt, chilli powder, pepper powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and toss well.
3. Add the seared egg and garnish with coriander leaves.

P.S: While searing the egg lower the flame and keep tossing well in oil so that it is roasted well on all the sides

Banana (Raw) Peel Pallya

This is another recipe that I learnt from my MIL. My mother in law had made a batch of banana chips. From that we used the banana peel. First we have to remove the most outer layer of the banana Peel and we can store them in refrigerator for 1 week.

Banana Peel of 7-8 Banana's
Oil- 2 tsp
Chilli Powder- 1tsp
Mustard Seeds- 1tsp
Salt to taste
Water (if needed)

1. Cut the banana peel as shown (vertically) and put it in water for a while so that it becomes fresh.
2. In a non-stick pan add oil and mustard seeds and wait till it crackles.
3. Squeeze the water out of banana peel and add it in the pan.
4. Add salt and chilli powder and fry till it is fried. (if you don't want it to be crisp you can add water and cook)

Spicy Potato and Drumstick Pallya

Drumstick- 3
Cumin Powder-1/4 tsp
Coriander Powder-1/4 tsp
Turmeric Powder-1/4 tsp
Chilli Powder-1/2 tsp

Asafoetida- a pinch

1. Chop the potatoes and drumstick with little water, oil (1/2 tsp) and salt.
