The Best Fried Eggs in the World

There is nothing like an eggs-and-toast breakfast. Here is my recipe for the perfect fried eggs

You need : 2 eggs, 1/2 an onion, 3 green chillies, butter, 4 cloves of garlic, 4 slices of bread, salt, black pepper (loosely chopped), red chilli flakes, oregano seasoning (start saving the last 2 items from your pizza deliveries).

Prep : Peel off the skin from the garlic cloves. Break the eggs into a mug (or saucer or whatever) and add the salt, black pepper and chilli flakes. Use as much as you need, of course. Chop the onions fine and add to the eggs. Beat the eggs, but gently. Dont change it to a single-textured yellow mass. Make sure that the the yolk is not completely mixed with the white.

Cooking the eggs : Heat some oil (again, as much as you need) in the pan. When it is nice and smoky, dump in the eggs. Throw in a couple of pinches of oregano (trust me on this). Start moving and scraping the eggs around so as to get them all scrambled. When the eggs start turning brown, take them out.

Making the toast : Toast the four slices of bread to a very light brown. Cut off the corners if you want. While the slices are still hot rub the garlic cloves on them till they are gone completely. One clove for each slice. Remember that the toast needs to be a little firm to take in the garlic. Then butter up the slices and sprinkle some black pepper (little finer this time) on top.

Serve : Serve the eggs and toast with some ketchup and mustard; also some juice or coffee or whatever gets you going.
