Few things to keep in mind

  • Frying the eggs: Make sure the batter you prepare to coat the egg pieces is thick. Else it will slide off the egg and won’t give a proper coating when you fry them. And the result would be just plain fried eggs!
  • Sauces: You can adjust the quantity of sauces as per your liking. If you have chilli paste, go ahead and use that instead of the chilli sauce.

  • Corn Flour – 1/4 cup
  • All Purpose Flour – 1/4 cup
