- Sweetcorn: 2-3 Table spoons (optional)

- In a frying pan, add a little olive oil (or any other oil). When it’s hot, add sliced onions.
- Once onions start to get just a little bit golden, add ginger and garlic paste.
- Add meat and seasoning and let it cook till meat is tender.
- Then add tomatoes and let them cook for a few minutes till they get soft.
- Add Bell pepper, mushrooms, red and green chilly and give it a few minutes.
- After that, add olives, jalapeños, lemon juice, sweetcorn and coriander.
- Now with a spatula, move the mixture to one side of the frying pan and add mayonnaise and ketchup to the empty side and let it boil just for a minute
- Now mix ketchup and mayonnaise with the spatula till they blend fully.
- Now mix it all together.
- You can either separate the mixture and fry the egg on the side of the frying pan and mix it in the mixture or fry the eggs separately (which is best for burgers, sandwiches, & panini)
Now mixture is ready which can be spread on toasts, sandwiches, panini, stir-fry, burgers, pizza, lasagna, quesadilla or pasta.
For sandwiches, just spread out both sides of bread. Put butter on one side, mustard, ketchup and mayonnaise on the other. Put this mixture on one side. Add a fried egg on it and a slice of cheese. Now combine both the slices. Warm it up a little bit either in panini maker or a toaster so cheese in it melts and burger is a little crispy. It can be served with salad, fries and juice.
