directions

  • Beat eggs until well mixed.
  • Add the milk, salt and pepper.
  • Heat ghee or butter in a large, heavy frying pan and cook the onions, chilies and ginger until soft.
  • Add turmeric, coriander leaves and tomato, if used, and fry for a minute or two longer, then stir in the egg mixture and the ground cumin.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring and lifting the eggs as they begin to set on the base of the pan.
  • Mix and cook until the eggs are of a creamy consistency-they should not be cooked until dry.
  • Turn on to a serving plate and garnish with tomato and coriander.
  • Serve with chapatis, parathas or toasted bread.
  • I Squeeze some lime too and scramble it some more until it resembles crumbs for a filling for a chappati or to be had with a loaf of fresh soft/hard bread.

    Oh my goodness but these are such good eggs! Completely different, delicious burst of flavors & bright colors. I scaled this down to just one serving for a quick and incredible breakfast - super flavor, easy to fix,& will be a new standard in my house. I stuffed mine into a pita bread pocket.

    Great flavor, I did make a few modifications to lower the fat but stayed with the basic recipe/technique. This is easily prepared and would be great for any meal of the day. Thank you for sharing (modifications: sprayed pan w/ nonstick spray and used eggbeaters)

    These were good and unique but not wow but we had to make due with what we had on hand so I felt it would not be fair to rate it less than 5 stars
