My 5 year old son calls it LADYFINGER PIZZA!!  

This is a very popular dish in Parsi Cuisine. Parsis love anything and everything with eggs !

High in proteins and teamed with veggies makes this a very healthy and power packed meal for children and adults!


Bheeda par edu was an immediate hit with my kiddo and my hubby who wiped off the whole plate in the blink of an eye J J   It is an easy dish to make and carry for picnics and whilst travelling.


4 large eggs
250 gms ladyfinger (chopped)
2 large onion (chopped)
1 tomato  (chopped)
2 green chillies (finely chopped)
½ tsp cumin seeds
3 tbsp clarified butter / cooking oil
Salt to taste

½ tsp red chilli powder
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp coriander powder
¼ tsp garam masala

Handful of fresh coriander (finely chopped)


Chop the Okra into medium sized pieces.

In a non-stick frying pan, heat the ghee and add the cumin seeds till they splutter.

Next fry the onions and green chilies till pale golden in colour.

Add the tomatoes and sauté till they have softened.

Prep all the spices.

Next, add all the ground spices. Saute them on low flame for around 5 mins.

Add the chopped Okra and mix well.  Add salt, cover and cook on low flame for 5 minutes.

Remove lid and check if the okra is sticking to the pan.  In case, it is sticking, add 1 tsp oil and mix.
Cover and let it cook for another 10 minutes or till the Okra is well cooked.

While the Okra is cooking , break the eggs and add a pinch of salt and the chopped coriander to it.
Beat the eggs till frothy.

Spread the eggs evenly over the Okra after the Okra is cooked. 

Cover and cook on low heat for around 7-8 minutes or till the eggs are set.

**Alternatively, put the vegetable mixture into a shallow pie plate and spread the egg mixture evenly over it. Bake at 180 degrees for 10 mins or till the eggs are well set.**

Cut into medium sized wedges and serve immediately.

You can enjoy this Parsi delight by itself or with some green chutney and ketchup on the side !
