Akoori (Indian scrambled eggs)


Akoori (Indian scrambled eggs)

Serves 4


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green or red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • good pinch of turmeric
  • 2 large tomatoes, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 7 eggs, beaten
  • small pack coriander, roughly chopped
  • 4 chapatis (or gluten-free alternative), lightly toasted, to serve


  1. Heat a large frying pan over a low-medium heat and add the butter. Gently fry the onion, chilli and garlic until the onion is soft – about 5 mins. Add the spices and cook for 1-2 mins more, stirring around the pan until aromatic.
  2. Add the tomatoes, cook for 1 min, then pour in the eggs and lower the heat. Stir slowly to scramble the eggs as they cook, and remove from the heat while they are still a little runny. Continue stirring off the heat for 1 min more until the eggs are just set.
  3. Stir through the coriander and serve with chapatis for a delicious breakfast or brunch.
