Food is memories. I never forget good food that I had somewhere. I had this egg masala at my friend Jenela’s place decades back when I was in school. She was my school mate. Life moved on but the memory of this egg masala stuck on to me forever. I still remember her mother serving seconds and thirds to everyone at that farewell party. She just stood next to us and made sure that everyone was stuffed. In India, food is love. β€œIn the childhood memories of every good cook , there’s a large kitchen, a warm stove, a simmering pot and a mom.” Β  This recipe is one of Jenis mom, Bagya auntie’s masterpiece. This egg masala needs to be there in everyone’s repertoire.Β  Its simple, its easy and its finger licking good. Below is a pic of Bagya auntie and her husband. Those hands cook magic.
