For the Tzatziki fried eggs –

  • Organic egg – 1
  • Leftover (or not) kulcha – 1

Method –

  • Pour in the yogurt in a muslin, and keep it for a minimum of 4 to 6 hours to ensure all the water has drained out. You can also do this the night before.
  • Also, wash and peel the cucumber. Cut into half and grate the whole cucumber. Take another muslin and put in the grated cucumber and press together so that most of the water is absorbed. Take a kitchen towel, and pat dry.

  • Take a large bowl and mix the yogurt, cucumber, and garlic. Season with some pepper as per taste. Keep it in the fridge to chill.
  • In a pan, add a few drops of oil break the egg. Take a spatula and move it to one side to form the crescent moon shape.
