My hubby cooks only a few dishes like, scrambled eggs, egg bhurji, Dal, sambar, pav bahaji and chicken. He told me he literally survived with all these dishes while he is studying and staying alone. He makes good chapathi’s too. He says he would alternate all the above dishes and with chapathi it will be a great taste.
I can’t eat same dishes 3 times a day, I need varieties. When I had the baby, there was no one expect the two of us here in US, nobody was there to help us. He usually made scrambled eggs in morning and we survived eating that with bread. It was a real help. I need to worry about the lunch and dinner. Now also he makes scrambled eggs occasionally.
He doesn’t like the dal which I make, he tell me that it is good still some taste is missing. One problem, if I let him to cook; he will make a mess in the kitchen by using lot of spoons, pot and pans. He cleans that too, so end result is fine. It is fun to watch him cooking, he won’t cut all the vegetable and starts cooking like I do, he starts cooking and then cut the vegetable, while oil is heating he adds seasoning like cumin seeds and mustard and then in between cut onion and add that while onion is burning he cuts garlic and so on. Occasionally stir in between. Finally I get tasty dish so I shouldn’t be complaining. I love his pav bhaji, he told me his sister is master chef and she cooks very delicious pav bhaji. Last time when we visited India she made it for us. It was okay if you ask me which one is best I will say my hubby’s pav bhaji. May be he adds some extra love in that one
Last Sunday he told he will make egg bhurji, I said okay, while looking at ingredients he found that only one tomato is there, so he asked me what to do, I told him to add some spinach. He finally added some frozen spinach and made egg bhurji this way. He used only one egg and rest of egg whites, so a healthy dish.

Onion: ¼ cup (chopped finely)
Frozen spinach: 1/ 4 cup

How he made
In a small bowl add one egg and egg white of rest of eggs. To this add salt, black pepper and turmeric and beat well until entire egg and spices incorporated.
Then add spinach, chopped onion, green chili and tomato and mix everything once again.

Switch off the flame and keep aside.
