    Thanks for peeking in.

    How are you going to grind those spices? Grinding is necessary.
    Also, make sure to use very less oil while frying the eggs, so that
    their yolk doesn't dismantle.

    BTW, ever since I saw the PETA videos about animal slaughter,
    I stopped eating flesh, so I don't know any Chicken/Meat recipes.

    See this video:
    http://www.peta.org/features/agriprocessors.aspx

    You still feel like eating flesh?

    How I am going to grind.? Good questions. How you know i am not able to do that? LOL

    Anisha, I used to live for 32 years in a village of Punjab in India. I was used to get food cooked by my mom and sisters even after my marriage. I never cooked by my self. I knew nothing about cooking. Now I am living in a city in North America.My mom is still in Village in Punjab. I am learning to cook. I am not very good in cooking . But, at least, I can cook something, so that I am not hungry.

    I will grind all that in grinder/mixer. LOL. I have to try.

    I never eat meat in my whole life. I used to have animals at my farm in my village in Punjab. I have seen a cow/Buffalo in tears when its newly born baby died after few days. I can never think to eat meat. I had compassion for those animals, I used to have at my farm house in Punjab. I even got scared, when they talk about killing animals for meat. I am never going to watch that video.I wont be able to watch either. I have seen chicken being killed. I stop eating chickens,fish, eggs for almost 10 years. After 10 years i tried again and I eat very rare. I know it is blood and it is in-human and height of selfishness to kill birds/animal for the taste of tongue.

    Let my try the recipe.

    Can you please post recipe for Cheese chile.? Nice to know you don't eat flesh. Also thinking to get rid of this bad habit.

    That's not practical. The amount of spice here is very small,
    you won't be able to grind this small amount of spice in the
    standard mixer.

    Well, I don't think I would have bothered that much if animals
    were killed through "Cyanide". It is said that Cyanide kills
    in 1 or 2 seconds? ;-)
    It is the pain caused to animals that has completely turned
    me off from flesh.

    to try too hard to get rid of this habbit?
