  • 2 blocks unsalted butter

  • Crush the farmer cheese into finely with the help of your fingers.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix well.
  • Cut the garlic into slices.
  • Now, let’s start by melting the butter in the pan. Add unsalted butter in a heated pan and melt it.
  • Once the butter is melted, add the garlic into it and fry it for 2-3 minutes.
  • Now add the properly shuffled eggs in the mixture of butter and garlic and continue stirring for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the crushed cheese and again stir it thoroughly.
  • Add the salt as per your taste and chilli flakes to the mixture.
  • 1-3 minutes of stirring and cooking, you’ll see butter at the top of the dish; it means the
    meal is ready.
  •  Stir it thoroughly and turn off the flame and serve it with rice or without rice.


Don’t overheat the butter by the mistakenly overheated turn of the flame and let it cool.
Overheating butter will burn your other ingredients and also give bitter.
Keep on playing with the flame, make small when your dish starts burning and increase if needed.
You can even serve it without rice.
