Full of nutrition and protein, eggs are a perfect way to start your mornings.
“Sunday ho ya Monday roz khao ande” goes the famous phrase. Most people do not have a lot of energy early in the morning. They just need their cup of coffee and would head to work right after. We aren’t very sure of how well you can sustain your energy throughout the day with just caffeine. It is said that you should eat something solid before beginning your day. You might be too lazy to make a lavish breakfast every day and look for ways to cut short your work. In such a scenario, eggs can be a great option. Abundant in nutrition and filling for your appetite, eggs can be the perfect breakfast companions.
From scrambled eggs to poached ones, there is no dearth of ways to make your eggs. They are so versatile that you can have them for lunch and dinner too. It could an egg curry that you’re making or some scotch eggs or simply egg masala. They work well with rotis, rice and bread too. However, if you have eggs in the morning, you’ll feel active and happy all day.
