Egg chaat

I studied my Engineering from Belgaum, Karnataka. Most of the people I know (both friends and relatives) have also done their BE from the same place. It is the place where I had the chaats for the first time(except Pani Puri. My mother and grand mother are experts in pani puri and I grew up eating it). You name any chaat and Belgaum had the best of it. One thing I missed eating there was the famous omlet available at the railway station. I don’t know why it was so famous ;). All the guys knew about it. They had this omlet at 12 in the night while returning home from their studies (or taking a night walk to overcome their sleep!!!).
Though I never went out and had egg chaats/omlets in roadside stalls, my brother, hubby and some of my friends very well knew about this famous egg chaat. Since I never tasted it before, I had to completely rely on my hubby’s description for this recipe. Now I can say I am a big fan of this chaat.

Ingredients:
Eggs (boiled) 2
Onion 1
Tomato 1
Lemon juice 1 tbl spn
Chaat masala 1/2 tea spn
Chilli powder 1/2 tea spn
Coriander leaves 3-4 strands
Salt

Method:
Finely chop onion, tomato and coriander leaves. Add chilli powder, salt, chaat masala, lemon juice and mix well.
Cut the eggs into halves. Keep the mixture on the egg and serve.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 15min (including the time to boil eggs).

  1. Hi Shilpa,

    Belgaum, eh? The world is indeed a small place. I was born in Belgaum and had maternal grandparents living there for many, many years so it was a must-visit place on many weekends from Goa. We still have so many friends, cousins there that it is like my second hometown.

  2. Interesting recipe! isn’t it surprising that some of the best foods that you have ever tasted is usually sometime after midnight and that too off of street carts 🙂

    cheers!

  3. Small world, indeed! Both my parents grew up and studied in Belgaum. I have very vague memories of Belgaum and another town called Bailongal (sp?).

    😀

  4. Deepa, Manisha, I am happy to know that you too are connected to Belgaum in some way :). Its like a second home for me too, basically because of my Pachi(mom’s sis). She was/is like a second mother for me. (Manisha,I have heard of Bailhongal, but never been there. I had a few friends from that place).
    Vineela, SH,Santhi,Gini, Thanks for the comment. I hope you will like the taste when you try it :).

  5. Nice one Shil. Ya..we still fondly remember our Belgaum days..and that dabba shop near the railway gate.

  6. Shilpa,

    I was looking for some odd egg recipes for tonight and i came across this one….Hey, I have tried a similar version of this.But for a different case, due to heart problems Dr had advised my abbu not to take the egg yolk, but poor abbu liked eggs much so i tried this recipe to make him happy. (& Tat was long back..)…the same ingredients of t chaat over here…along with some mustard to season and 1/2 teaspoon rasam mix..(my mum usually prepares n keeps this rasam mix handy) The mixture is powder form dry fried curry leaves, zeera, asafoetida,black pepper. Boil as many 3/4 eggs, discard the egg yolks, cut lengthwise pieces of the white layer, in a wok, heat oil(coconut oil plays good), sprinkle some mustard and curry leaves, when they splatter, add chopped onions, tomato, chopped greenchillies, and fry well….after 5/6 mins add the egg slices…and adding turmeric is optional…and tat’s all…done…wish i attach photoes too…neways let me know if u like liked it.
