Eggs Kejriwal Ingredients bun pav, eggs and cheese

Season and spice to taste

You can adjust the amount of salt, green chillies and red chilli flakes to your liking making it more or less spicy as per your preference.

Adding finely chopped Cilantro (Coriander) in the end makes Eggs Kejriwal even more flavourful.

For this dish egg white should be just done and egg yolk should still be runny. But if you do not like a runny yolk, you can always cook it a little longer till egg yolk is done.

Some History

This dish was invented by Mr. Devi Prasad Kejriwal. He was a regular visitor at Willingdon Sports Club at Tardeo in Mumbai. When he use to visit the club, he use to like his eggs on toast along with some cheese and green chillies to spice it all up. Soon this dish became a favourite of many club visitors and later grew in popularity all over.
