Akoori (Indian style scrambled eggs)

Weekends are something everyone at my home looks forward to for one reason in particular —  that i will  make some really  fun meals! Starting with a yummy substantial breakfast and to go with it of course comes a good cup of Indian chai to sip on at leisure.

This morning we woke up early to get in a nice hike before it got too hot. We enjoyed some refreshing cool air and the birds singing with expansive vistas across the valley. Upon returning home quickly whipped up these delicious eggs and served it up with some home baked crusty bread.



3 tablespoons of butter or oil 

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, minced 

1/2 inch of ginger minced 

1 to 2 green Thai or Serrano’s chilly  finely chopped

1 tsp of cumin seeds

1/4 tsp of turmeric 

1/4 tsp of chilly powder -optional 

1 large tomato , finely chopped

3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped, plus more to garnish

4 large eggs, beaten

salt, to taste

Heat the butter in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add cumin and chopped onions fry until lightly brown. Add garlic, ginger, chilly and fry for a minute until fragrant, then add tomatoes , turmeric, chilly powder and fry until soft. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cilantro, then pour beaten eggs into the pan and stir well to combine all ingredients.Cook slowly, stirring frequently, until eggs are soft but set, and season with salt.

Serve immediately with buttered bread of your choice. Yummmy!IMG_6904
