Indian Spicy Scrambled Eggs

I found this recipe in an Indian cookbook and adapted it a little bit to suit our tastes. My fiance calls this the best way of making scrambled eggs. Scrumptious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the onion, garlic and chilli until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add mustard seeds, turmeric and garam masala and stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes and keep cooking, stirring regularly, until tomatoes start to break up.
  4. Pour beaten eggs into the pan, season with salt and cook, stirring constantly, until they are done.
  5. You can serve this garnished with fresh, finely chopped coriander leaves.
  6. Note: You can use less garlic than the recipe indicates if you don't like it that much, or even cut it out. I don't always have chillies on hand, so I leave them out - all this means is that the eggs will be slightly less spicy, but will still taste really nice.

I made this for this Spring's Pick-A-Chef. I am a big Indian food fan and I like spicy scrambled eggs. This recipe tastes like curried eggs. I used a seeded jalapeno pepper and still found it a bit bland. I gave it 4 stars because although I didn't really like the combo of seasonings...think others would likely enjoy this recipe.

Loved it. If I could give six stars, I would. My husband is still raving about this dish! I halved the quantity of garlic, since the cloves were quite large. And I added a teaspoonful of olive oil when I was frying the onions. I expect to be nagged mercilessly into cooking this again and again and again :-) Thank you for a great recipe!
