Egg salad

Majority of my friends like hard boiled egg. I love them too. When i was a kid i would hear this add on the TV saying "Sunday ho ya Monday roj khayein Andey"  , Which meant eat eggs everyday. These are rich source of protein and one should take them in their diet on regular basis. This recipe is also suitable for people on diet because its really healthy. There are several ways people consume the boiled eggs. In many parts of the world eggs are served as soft boiled or in poached form while in many other parts they are usually served in hard boiled form .
I believe that the environment, ecology and weather has a major impact on the food culture of a region and it is quite interesting to note that when you walk 40 km from a place you will find that the food culture has already taken a bent as compared to the one from where you started and as you proceed to walk on, and with each 40 km of distance you will discover a new cuisine and a new food culture,"Diversity" Isn't that amazing!!!.
