Sunny Side Up Pizza With Grilled Cheese Sandwich

I have been cooking this for a while and thought you guys might like it too. Its a perfect nutritious breakfast to start your day with. So here’s how I cook it:

Ingredients

Egg (ideally 1 or 2)
1/4th of a Capsicum
1/2 a Tomato
1/2 Onion
Cheese
1-2 teaspoon Any flavor-less oil
Brown Breads (As many as you want, I eat 2)
1/2 a teaspoon of Cumin Seeds (paste or powder won’t do)
1/2 or 1 Green Chilli
Salt

How To Cook 

  • Chop capsicum, onion and tomato in equal sized small cubes.
  • Make thin slices of the green chili.
  • Heat about 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan
  • Put in the cumin seeds and fry until they start browning
  • As the cumin seeds start browning, throw in the slices of chili ( cover your nose :D), fry it for 5-7 seconds
  • Add the chopped onions and fry until they start browning
  • Now add the chopped capsicum and tomato, add a little salt and fry for about 5-10 seconds
  • Meanwhile grate generous amount of cheese on one brown bread, place the other brown bread on top and put it for grilling.
  • Spread the semi-fried veggies evenly on the pan
  • Break 1 or 2 egg(s) and evenly spread the egg while on the veggies. Sprinkle a little salt on top of the egg(s). Make sure not to break the egg yolks
  • When the egg(s) is (are) fried enough that you know it will be easy for you to transfer on the serving plate without breaking, grate the cheese on the egg(s) and let it melt.
  • Now, smoothly transfer the steaming hot goodness onto a serving plate
  • Cut the grilled cheese sandwich in half (hot melted cheese will ooze out) and place it beside the fried eggs
  • Don’t wait, eat! 😛

Alternatives

  • You can use butter instead of vegetable oil.
  • You may not use the cumin seeds, but I say, it gives personality to the fried eggs.
  • You may use finely chopped broccoli.
  • You may use pepper instead of chilies.
  • You may sprinkle some chili flakes and oregano (don’t use cumin seeds in that case) on top of the eggs.
  • You may just grill the breads without the cheese.
  • If you are working on losing weight, use just a little cheese on the eggs, but that’s a must 😉

Nutrition Value

All the ingredients here such as the  veggies (semi-fried), cheese, oil and wheat bread, are loaded with vitamins, minerals, proteins and antioxidants.

Don’ts

  • Do not do not over heat the oil.
  • Do not over fry the veggies.
  • Do not burn down your kitchen, use the exhaust fan or chimney.
  • Before exiting the kitchen make sure you have turned off everything, including the lights.

A Sunday Well Spent

I am feeling more optimistic and positive these days. The Silent Guy has a big part in it. 

In January I joined a NGO for volunteering in its various projects. Today the NGO organized a big event, around 3000 school students came from various parts of the state and took part in various competitions such as clay modelling, drawing, dancing, singing, Rangoli, sports, Just A Minute, Mad Ad etc.

I reached at 8 am sharp and I was astounded to see so many participants and volunteers. I was assigned the job of guiding the students and teachers to find their way into the various halls where a particular event took place. Later when all settled down, I went to supervise the clay modelling competition along with 3 other volunteers. It was really fun to see them model clay into something really meaningful..err..sometimes not really. But it was fun. I made some new friends and I think I will soon take on the responsibility of coordinating a monthly event of feeding the poor in my area.

The clean water guys

Just as I was taking the photographs, I saw the small yellow grass flowers. I missed them for so long! Ya, you heard me right. They are linked to my childhood. The house that I have talked about had so many of these yellow flowers and I remember sitting down on the ground, looking at these flowers and wondering why they were so small. A blue version of these flowers is also found. Anyway, I quickly took a snap, who knows when I might see them again.
