I love the smell of fresh dill. It smells like my mother vegetable garden, clean and fresh. So whenever I cook anything with dill, it gives me a really wonderful feeling. The similar thing happens to my husband. Dill has become one of his favorite vegetable. The smell of any dish with it reminded him of sitting somewhere in a far village.
We used dill both as herb and vegetable. This stir fried dill and egg is absolutely my favorite dishes. It is very healthy and good for digestion. My favorite way to cook is stir frying it with eggs. It may sound like a strange combination, but this is what I grew up eating. This dish is so simple and takes less than 5 minutes to make.
