Akoori - Parsi Style Eggs

This recipe comes from Monica Bhides's and is one of her favourite recipes from her upcoming book, Everything Indian.

A new young voice in Indian cooking, Monica Bhide was probably born with a mixing spoon in her mouth! Since the age of ten, cooking has been a lifelong passion for this accomplished caterer and home chef. Monica specialises in Indian cuisine and has prepared everything from an intimate dinner for two to large parties of 40. A graduate of several formal cooking courses in her native India, she is also a voracious cookbook reader and counts hundreds of cookbooks in her collection.

Frustrated by the lack of straightforward Indian cookbooks, Monica became inspired several years ago to develop simplified and healthful versions of her favorite Indian dishes. The result is the collection of mouthwatering Indian recipes in her book The Spice is Right, where Monica, in her down-to-earth and lively writing style, guides Indian food lovers on a non-intimidating and flavourful foray into home-style Indian cooking.
