Eat fine before nine

Eat fine before nine


The City’s gastronomy craving just doesn’t end. While you are spoilt for choice with a variety of fine dining options, if you’re in a mood to satiate your hunger with some simple food item, here’s what you should do--head straight to the nearest bread omelette kiosk that dots almost every corner of this “hungry” City.   

Egg on : Bread omelette sellers across the City are a hit among food lovers.

The vendors all across Delhi earn their moolah by selling bread anda for just Rs 20. These vendors also sell boiled eggs served with chopped onion and green chillies. And almost everyone stops by for a bite at these stalls. It doesn’t matter if you’re a cash crunched student or a hotshot executive.

“I love bread omelette. I can have it every day. These roadside vendors have made my life easier. Whenever I feel like having bread anda I end up going to a stall and grab a plateful of bread and anda. It is cheap on the pocket with just Rs 20,” said Soumen Chatterjee, a student. 

The method is no rocket science. One has to break an egg, beat it lightly, add salt (as per taste) and finely chopped green chillies, finely chopped onions and coriander. After mixing all the ingredients together pour the mixture and fry it. Then the fried omelette can be served with a little butter on top of the egg and even on the bread.

But weight-watchers can skip that. “I put up my stall at eight in the morning as most people come here while going to office. If they skip their breakfast at home, they stop by for a bite here,” said Rakesh Kumar, bread anda vendor at Vasundhara Enclave.

Another vendor Suresh Kumar who puts up his kiosk at Mayur Vihar Phase I said, “I earn really well just by selling bread and anda. It’s a 14-hour job which is taxing but I earn well. It’s an easy item and cooks in just five minutes.”

These bread omelette outlets are life saving even for night crawlers who do not wish to spend much after partying with friends. One can also get bread omelette made to suit your taste. You can choose from spicy, non spicy, salted or less salted, with chillies or without chillies.

Another stall which is thronged by egg lovers is the one at Jhandewalan extension. The bread ande wala here is so popular that at times you have to wait to get your platter. “I work here and end up eating a plate of bread anda every day before leaving for home. It has become my habit and I just love it,” said Ram Khanna, a professional.
