Masala scrambled eggs

image

I woke up this morning and really fancied some eggs and in some ways because I am soo Indian I decided to “Masalafy” them. Add to that onion, tomato, coriander and not forgetting the chilli. (I can’t get enough of chilli at the moment!)
plus seasoning and you have a spicy scrambled egg dish, laced with more flavour than you can get in the morning! What a great way to start the day! I’m ready bring it on!

INGREDIENTS

2 large eggs beaten lightly
1 tomato chopped
1/2 small onion chopped
Handful of chopped fresh coriander
Green chilli chopped to taste
1/2 tbsp mild olive oil
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp paprika
Pinch of garam masala
1/2 tsp ground coriander and cumin powder
Salt to taste

METHOD

1. Heat the oil and butter in a non stick frying pan. Sprinkle in the paprika on a low flame and mix in the onions and sauté for a couple of minutes until soft

2. Throw in the tomato and chilli plus all seasoning and dry spices, combine well and add the fresh coriander

3. Pour in the beaten eggs, keep the pan on a low flame and stir fry to get scrambled egg consistency. The tomato will release its juice so you may need to take the heat up a little to help evaporate the juice, taste the salt at this stage and add more if needed

4. Serve on two pieces of warm toast with lashings of butter and now devour!

  1. Love this! Scrambled eggs are so boring, the only way I actually look forward to them is if they’re “masalafied” 🙂 I use a recipe that also adds a little bit of urad dal and chana dal (fried at the same time as the onions) and it gives it a lovely crunch too.
