Love is the secret of good food. When a dish is prepared with love for the eaters, it fills not just the stomach but the heart of the eater as well. Not only so, the dish cooked becomes a special, precious creation which lights up the eyes and tickles the palate of the diner.
When food is cooked in a good mood, with love in every turn of the ladle, the food becomes imbued with positive energy and uplifts the spirit of the enjoyer. I feel that this is the basic lesson which should be taught in all cookery classes. When I cook for my loved ones, I always try to cook up a surprise, something new and interesting, possibly adventurous too!
When children visit my table, I enjoy seeing their eyes widen, ready to pop, at the magnetic sight of the marvelous dishes. When they happily stuff themselves, nodding their heads in joy, I have my reward. Of course, it spoils them, but endears them to me as well! Here is one such beautiful, healthy, mouthwatering recipe.
Egg mint ‘matoes were a spur of the moment creation, when my son asked me to make some mini egg omelettes for him. I had already prepared green mint chutney to go with freshly baked bread when this idea dawned upon me. Needless to say, the snack turned out to be a smashing success! To make this delicious appetizer, you will need around half the quantity of mint chutney given in my green mint chutney recipe. You will also need a non-stick kuzhiyappa chatti to fry the mini omelets (egg appams).
As you put an egg mint ‘mato in your mouth, you can feel a marvelous explosion of flavors on your tongue – the freshness of tomatoes, the fragrant aroma of the hot and tang mint chutney, the crunchiness of the onion in the mini omelettes, all blending perfectly together to give you a taste of heaven! Be sure to make and enjoy! Don’t forget to tell me how you like your egg mint ‘matoes! I’d be delighted to reply to all your comments.
