Scrambled Eggs With Flavor

"Scrambled eggs made this way is more of comfort food, the addition of fresh cilantro and flavorful fragant green chilli makes it a Sunday Brunch favorite Or as a side dish for a light evening meal , also good for those just getting over a fever, cold as it helps kick start the tastebuds again! I go all the way and make it with Butter- Note do not let the eggs get hard or dry by overcooking them. These can be served with Hot toast. Or as a filling in for a wholewheat wrap e.g. a tortilla or Indian flat bread cook the eggs a little more"
