Spicy Scrambled Eggies!

You guys would be very familiar with the plain scrambled egg na, where we beat egg along with required salt, finely chopped onions and green chilly and scrape the eggs. But I feel, this recipe is way too plain n not happening now a days! Hence, I tried a spicy version n this is the outcome! Eventhough it's not got its roots in Kerala, people here has made it a common dish for its simplicity and also, kids would prefer different versions of egg than the common hard-boiled version. While trying this, you can reduce spiciness for your kids. 

Ingredients :

Egg : 2 nos.
Finely sliced onion : 1 no.
Shallots : 3 nos.
Turmeric powder : 1/4 tspn
Pepper powder : 1/2 tspn
Mustard seeds : 1/4 tspn
Chopped red chilly : 2 nos.
Curry leaves : 1 sprig
Finely chopped green chilly : 1 no.
Coriander leaves : 1 sprig
Salt : as required
Butter / Coconut oil : 1 tbspn
  • Beat the eggs along with finely chopped green chilly and finely chopped shallots.
  • Take a non stick pan and pour oil onto it. Add mustard seeds and allows it to splutter. 
  • Add chopped red chillies and curry leaves and saute well for a minute under medium flame.
  • Add finely sliced onion along with a little salt and turmeric powder and saute until the onion turns slightly brownish.
  • Add the beaten egg and reduce the flame; sprinkle pepper powder over the egg; and then finely chopped coriander leaves, allow it to set for a minute.
  • Scrape the egg with a spatula/wooden spatula and sprinkle required salt after checking taste.
  • Scramble it until its just getting set. Serve hot with chappathis.
  • Its even a perfect snack!
Note : Add butter instead of oil for better taste n aroma.
