Master chef Sanjeev Kapoor is one of the most gifted chefs in India. I am a great fan of his recipes. Be it the zero oil cooking, the desserts or the main course delights, when followed step by step, his recipes give a special flavor.
Of the many ingredients used to cook, eggs are one of the most versatile. They can be used in hundreds of ways to get a unique taste. Add Sanjeev Kapoor’s magic touch, and you have a dish that is mouthwatering, to say the least!
10 Must Try Sanjeev Kapoor Egg Recipes:
Here are 10 egg recipes from the kitchen of India’s most loved chef. These are my favorites and my family just drools over these eggy delights.
1. Anda PalakCurry:
If you love palak paneer, then this could be your next try. Hard boiled eggs are halved, and then simmered in mildly spiced, creamy spinach gravy to the perfection. Serve this right from the stovetop as a side dish for your favorite Indian flatbread or along with basmati rice or jeera rice for an awesome lunch.
2. Egg Hoppers:
Give the traditional Kerala appam recipe a tinge of Sri Lankan flavors with this egg recipe. Crack the egg onto the center of the appam and then season it with red paprika flakes. Take my word for it—the dish just tastes heavenly! You can omit the chili flakes if you are serving this to the kids. Pair it up with a ginger flavored spicy potato curry for a heavy breakfast!
3. Omelette With Mushroom, Capsicum, And Sprouts:
A day that begins with a marvelous, healthy delight is bound to be packed with energy. And, this Sanjeev Kapoor egg delight is a perfect option for that. Loaded with the goodness of fiber from mushrooms, protein from sprouts, and flavor from bell peppers, this omelet is an easy way for a wholesome, nutrition-packed start.

And, it just needs a maximum of 10 minutes to put together, which makes it a must try during a lazy weekend.
5. Eggplant And Chickpea Moussaka:
Moussaka is a classic Arabian delicacy and Sanjeev Kapoor has made this meatless by using eggplant and chickpea in the preparation. A baked delicacy, it should be served right out of the oven along with some bread of your choice. Pair it with Indian flatbreads for an ideal lunch option. It also works as a great party delight. If you are serving it at a party, then make sure you have plenty of toasted garlic bread, laden with butter, handy for enjoying this Arabian delicacy.
6. Hard Boiled Colored Eggs:
Give your fussy kids a visually tempting delight with these colorful hard boiled eggs from the kitchen of Sanjeev Kapoor. No artificial colors. While spinach powder is used to render the green hues, turmeric gives the classy yellow. Tomato powder is used to give the red hue. Make sure you halve them and serve topped with a dollop of cream for added appeal. Serve it along with roasted, whole grain bread, freshly sliced fruits, and a glass of milk for a complete breakfast option.
7. Cheesy Scotch Eggs:
These golden brown, deep fried delicacies are ideal for a bachelors’ party. A cheesy potato mixture, infused with the flavors of Worcestershire sauce and white pepper is used to cover hard boiled eggs. This is then rolled in breadcrumbs and then deep fried for an alluring, lip smacking starter. Serve it with whisky or scotch and a fiery sauce to kindle the party spirits.
8. Egg Balls:
Want to serve something different at the party? Try these flavorful, deep-fried egg balls. A spicy blend of dal, fenugreek seeds, red chilies, coconut, ginger, garlic, cumin seeds, and green chilies is mixed with onion, cheese, salt, and coriander leaves. Thoroughly beaten eggs are added to this mixture. Teaspoonful of this rich mixture is dropped in boiling hot oil and then deep fried to golden brown. Serve them hot alongside mayonnaise or any dip of your choice.
9. Pickled Eggs:
Pickles are loved by all and this one is a treat for the pickle as well as egg lovers. The flavors of five spice powder blends with the rich, pungent ginger and black pepper tang, rendering this pickle a truly fiery touch. While Sanjeev Kapoor has used plain vinegar here, I would opt for a chili vinegar for a pepped up flavor.
10. Egg Vermicelli:
Give your usual vermicelli upma a twist with this egg vermicelli recipe. Packed with the flavors of cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, and coriander, this one is a protein infused balanced breakfast option. Serve it alongside a glass of fresh, hot milk or a sizzling cup of ginger tea for a bright start.
