20-minute recipe Serves 4
Scrambled eggs come to life with warming spices and a fragrant twist of tomato. Yes, there are lots of spices in this dish, but you probably already have most of them in your cupboard, ready to liven up dinner. For a complete meal, serve this popular Indian street food with toasted, buttered rolls, chapati or toast. For a gluten-free dish, serve with rice.

Prep: 5 mins | Cook: 15 mins
  • 1

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add 2 1/2 tbsp of the ghee, then add the onion and cook, stirring until softened, around 5 minutes. Add the green chilies (if using) and ginger garlic paste and cook for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, garam masala, salt, chili powder and turmeric, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring until the tomatoes begin to soften, around 3 minutes.

    Using a potato masher, gently press the tomato mixture to release the liquid. Cook, stirring until the tomato mixture has absorbed all the liquid and the mixture resembles a paste, around 5 minutes.

  • 3

    Reduce heat to medium and push the tomato mixture to the edge of the pan. Add the remaining 1/2 tbsp ghee in the centre of the pan. Stir in the eggs with a wooden spoon and continue stirring until the egg mixture is cooked and soft-scrambled. Stir the tomato mixture into the eggs and keep cooking until combined and eggs are no longer soft, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

    Sprinkle in cilantro, portion the eggs into bowls and serve with toasted, buttered rolls, chapati, or toast. For a gluten-free version, serve with gluten-free toast, or over rice. If you wish, offer sliced red onions and lime wedges for garnish.

    Time-Saving Tip: Skip the extra chopping with pre-made ginger garlic paste, a tasty time-saver in this recipe, as well as in stir fries, sauces and marinades. It tastes great with many proteins, from fish to chicken to tofu.
