One of the quality we adore about eggs is the ease with which you can work with them. With a single egg you can make a plethora of dishes in a matter of minutes and be intensely satisfied with the results. For most of us, perhaps an omelette was the first real dish that we mastered in kitchen, and yet, there have been times when we couldn’t even get something as simple as an omelette right – but we saved yourself from the embarrassment anyway by passing it off as ‘scrambled eggs’.
Scrambled eggs is a popular breakfast dish made by stirring beaten eggs on a pan until you get creamy chunk of egg bits. You can spruce it up further with herbs, peppers, mushrooms, chicken chunks, salami and what not. By now, you must have established that making scrambled eggs is quite a cakewalk but what if we tell you that there exists an easier way to get it done? Yes, you heard us! Scrambled eggs can be made in a microwave as well. All you need is some eggs, herbs and veggies of your choice and a microwave-safe bowl. So you waiting for, let’s get started!
