by Shankar Damodaran — on  ,  ,  ,  , 


I’ve been experimenting a variety of cooking for quite sometime and this dish turned out to be soooo exotic. Hey, I am not faking, you should definitely try this out and you will surely thank me later. This dish is not a main course, it’s a side kick and can be considered a starter as well. I am not a pro at cooking, but this one tastes luscious.

The preparation time is hardly less than 5-7 minutes. You will find a brief step-by-step method on how to make this recipe. So let’s get started.


  • Refined Oil (45ml) - Use Olive Oil for best results
  • 3 Raw Eggs
  • 1 Green Chilli
  • 1/4th Red Capsicum
  • Soya Sauce
  • Chilli Sauce
  • Salt to taste

Raw Materials

  • A Non-Sticky Pan
  • A Lighter
  • Obviously, A Gas Burner
  • A Knife
  • A Spatula
  • A Cutting Board

Ingredients & Raw Materials ( That’s how they look )

Capsicum | Green Chilli | Soya Sauce | Eggs | Chilli Sauce

Gas Burner | Spatula | Knife | Non-Sticky Pan | Lighter

The Preparation.

The process will be demonstrated step by step with screen captures so you won’t have any trouble following this. Off we go.

1. Turn on the gas burner.

Turn the gas knob on to release the gas, use the lighter to hover over the gas stove and click to ignite the gas burner. If you have an automated gas burner that gets ignited by a twist of a knob then you are a one lucky beep.

Whoa fire! We are faster than the neanderthal. Good job!

2. Add Oil to the Pan and place it on the burner.

Add the 45ml of Refined/Olive Oil to the pan. Place the pan on the gas stove to heat it up.

I twisted the pan such that the oil is evenly spread across.

3. Finely chop the capsicum and green chilly.

Keep in mind that the pan is heating up. Don't take too much time in chopping.
Estimated time to chop < 1.5 minutes.

Get your cutting board and knife ready. Chop the capsicum and the green chilly into very fine pieces and keep it aside on your cutting board.

Chopped Capsicum (Looks like a heart, right? ;)

Chopped Green Chilly

HINT: If you notice a mild smoke or bubbles popping on the pan, you are almost ready to proceed to the next step. If not, wait a bit.

4. Add the chopped green chilly and capsicum to the pan.

Use your spatula to push the chopped green chilly and capsicum from the cutting board (don’t use hands, as green chillies are rumoured to burn like hell if it makes contact with the skin) to the heated oil pan. Mix it for a while till they become pale. (Estimated time = 1 minute)

After adding, keep mixin 'em till they become pale.

5. Add the 3 eggs to the mixture.

Break the eggs (Hint: I used the lighter to tap break the egg shells) and add them to the mixture in the pan. Keep whisking it for a while with the spatula.

3 Eggs on the pan. RIP.

After 2 minutes of whisking, they should look like the below image capture. If so, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Yeah it's almost cooked.

6. Add Soya Sauce and Chilli Sauce + Salt to Taste

We have almost reached to the end of recipe. Add 60ml of Soya Sauce and 1.5 teaspoon of Chilli Sauce. Mix them and add a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. (It depends on your taste, you can add even less).

60ml of Soya Sauce + 1.5 teaspoon of Chilli Sauce + Salt.

You need to keep whisking till the soya sauce is drained up. It hardly takes 2 minutes.
