There was a time when Sunday mornings in Mumbai were carefree, brunch was the best meal eaten and the world of South Mumbai was open for us to explore since I lived in Gamdevi at that time. That’s when my friend Sneha would come over for the night and then we’d visit Cafe Ideal at Girgaon Chowpatty for a scrumptious brunch. And during our very first visit, we discovered Schezwan eggs! Boiled eggs tossed in vegetables and Schezwan sauce – a typical Indo-Chinese dish!
A couple of years ago, when in Dubai, I decided that I had to have a good healthy breakfast that was easy to prepare, and I began eating boiled eggs everyday! One fine weekend, I realised I had a couple of eggs that I’d forgotten to carry to work the previous day left over, and I decided to revamp them into these delicious Schezwan eggs that we had with some buttered toast. You can use readymade Schezwan Sauce (I used Chings) or make your own – it’s up to you.
