CAPSICUM EGG PODIMAS | MUTTAI PORIYAL | EGG STIR FRY

This stir fry is easy to make with eggs and goes well with rice, chapathi, bread. This can be had as side dish for breakfast, lunch or as snack in evening. I have prepared it today with Bisibelabath (sambar sadam). Capsicum added to eggs gives a spicy taste. This is really a very quick recipe to do within minutes.
