Something we used to frequent eating at our college joint.Simple and easy to make for a hungry stomach.

  1. 2 burger Buns.
  2. 2 Eggs
  3. Some chopped Onions
  4. Some chopped Tomatoes
  5. A pinch of Chilly powder
  6. A pinch of salt
  7. and a hungry stomach 🙂
  1. In a pan heat some oil ,break an egg and make a  Bulls eye(ie flip the Bulls eye to fry it on either side- fried egg ,for people who prefer a “cooked” Bulls eye).
  2. Remove this from pan and place it on one half of bun
  3. Sprinkle chilly powder and salt.
  4. Top it with generous amount of onion and tomato chopped and cover with the second half of bun.
  5. EAT !!!

    You should try the same thing with cheese. It’s brilliant! Press cart serves the best keshto in Manipal! 😀

      Oh that might be good too,we get something of that sort in MC D, the Egg Muffin but they do not put onion,tomato,paprika so its not the same.

    Wow MIT keshto. Thank you for posting this. Made it and enjoyed it. Been about 10 years since I last had it in the MIT canteen. It all happened accidentally.
    I saw some thing saying kstew on the net. Later I found that was short for Kirsten Stewart. But it reminded me of keshto. So I googled it and found your post. I relived a 10 year old experience. And yes we could have cheese keshtow and the one I promoted during my time chakkuli keshto.

    In my day, a keshto was made with an egg sunny side up (bullseye) rather than over easy (double fried) as you describe. Of course, the keshto first started in MIT in my second or third year so it may have evolved since then.

    Also, a poached egg is one that is cooked by breaking it into boiling water. Eggs Benedict is a good example of a poached egg based dish.
