Egg Pepper Roast

I have a habit of buying fresh vegetables everyday. We are blessed to have a good vegetable vendor closeby who stocks fresh veggies everyday so I never buy in bulk and load the fridge. The down side of this is when there is an emergency! When there were some untoward news about our chief minister and the entire city shut down in a matter of hours, I was stuck with no veggies to cook!!

However, eggs are so versatile in nature, it always comes in handy when everything else fails. So on this particular day when I was stuck not having any vegetables to cook I made this pepper egg roast and kuthiraivali moong dal khichidi and it was one of the tastiest meals ever!! Simple and easy!
