Indian Style Scramble Eggs


I love to eat english style scramble eggs for breakfast but sometimes I just feel like having an extra bite in my breakfast. In Emeril Lagasse’s words I like to Kick it Up a Notch.

If you need that dose try out my version of Indian Style Scramble Eggs.

Indian Style Scramble Eggs.


  • 2 Eggs
  • Handfull of fresh coriander
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 tomato diced in small cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin/geera powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (more according taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of finely chopped green chilies
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of mango or chili pickle
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil or butter


  1. Heat the oil, add the onions and fry till they are transulent.
  2. Add the tomatoes and fry till they are nice and soft.
  3. Add the eggs and add all the spices and fresh coriander and mix well till the eggs are cooked.

***Serve the eggs with white bread and/or a Paratha (Indian Bread).  These can be bought in your near by Ethnic Stores or can be made at home.

Serving Recommendation:

  • Spread the chili pickle on the roti or the bread and then add the eggs and either make a sandwhich or wrap the roti and have it like a Burritto roll or in India we call it a Khati Roll.  Sometimes the mango pickle could be in big pieces and if that is the case just chop it up in small pieces.
