Lady Arrabella can’t even boil an egg but yesterday I invented a new recipe for cooking them. The two hens are laying two eggs a day, so it is vital I think up new ways of cooking them (the eggs not the hens). You need yoghurt. If you haven’t made my recipe (Dahi) just buy some. Mustard oil, thoroughly heated then cooled is lovely for this dish, but if you don’t like it, or can’t get it, use double virgin olive oil, a teaspoonful per egg. Take one or two hadboiled eggs per person, and mash them up into a yoghurt, a couple of table spoons per egg. Add oil, chopped corriander leaves, fresh ground black pepper, salt and a little chopped green chilli. Eat it warm with rice, cold with salad, or as a filling for a sandwich.
