Delicious Indian spiced eggs. I used canola oil instead of vegetable to be soy free, fresh ginger, cayenne powder for the chili to taste, freshly ground coriander, recipe#279714, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper plus the rest though I served ours with rice crackers to be gluten free. Made for MAKE MY RECIPE~Tag Game/Christmas 2010.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chili (red or to taste)

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and add the garlic, ginger and chilli and cook them until they are aromatic and then add the spices and continue to cook for 2 minutes.
