Crispy Eggs

I learnt this recipe from my friend Darshana, she used to bring it in her tiffin and I hogged on it!! I have named it myself for the blog :P
4 egg whites (I have become calorie conscious, thanks to my friend Shuchita :P)
1 onion finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
2 to 3 tbspn. Fresh coriander finely chopped
Oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafetida, turmeric powder for tempering
Red chilly Powder (according to your taste)
Salt to taste
Beat the egg whites slightly. Keep aside.
Take oil in a small frying pan; add cumin & mustard seeds, after they sputter, add turmeric, asafoetida and chopped onion. Fry for a few minutes, add chopped tomato, let it cook for a while, now add chopped coriander, mix well, now add salt, chilly powder, mix well again. Now, pour beaten egg whites, and cover the pan for about a minute, it should become really nice golden brown, and crisp. Now switch off the flame and fry the other side without the flame, your pan is hot enough to cook it.
The idea is to cook one side till crisp and the other side soft. It tastes really delicious, try it for sure! Serve it with hot chapatis or with brown bread in a sandwich form!
