Scrambled Masala Eggs

This is a Tamil recipe which I learnt from one of my friends. Here, Sambar powder is used as the masala. Let me tell you, it really tastes good and goes well with rice, rotis and dosas!

This is my entry for the Click event hosted by Bee and Jai of Jugalbandi.

The photograph was taken with a Nikon coolpix L4 camera. Lens: 6.3 – 18.9 mm. It was taken around noon in a naturally lit room.

What you need:

Eggs -6
Onion -1 big, chopped
Tomato -1 chopped
Green chillies -3 chopped
Curry leaves -1 sprig
Sambar powder -2 tsp
Turmeric powder -1\4 tsp
Salt -to taste
Oil -2 tbsp
Coriander leaves -1 tbsp chopped


Heat oil in a non stick pan. Put the onions, green chillies and curry leaves. Fry till the onions turn pink. Add the sambar powder and turmeric powder. Fry for a few seconds. Now add the tomatoes and fry for 2 minutes. Beat the eggs well and add to the pan. Also add salt. Fry well till the eggs do not stick to the pan at all. Finally add the chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot.
