Snake & Eggs
Yarali Ida (Fried Eggs)
Fry in boiling ghee two sliced onions. When light brown put them to the one side, and fry six eggs on both sides, sprinkling tops and bottoms with a mixture of half a teaspoonful of turmeric, half a teaspoonful of coriander, quarter of a teaspoonful of ginger, a quarter of a teaspoonful of red large chilies, and a teaspoonful of salt, all ground and carefully mixed. Trim off the ragged edges and eat with bread &c.
