  • 4 Eggs
  • tbsp  Oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds (Jeera)
  • Green Chili Pepper
  • Onion large, 1.5 cups
  • 1 Tomato  0.75 cup
  • Cilantro to garnish


  • Break the eggs and add to a bowl. Whisk the eggs well and set aside.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat and once it’s hot, add oil and cumin seeds. Saute for about 30 seconds until the cumin seeds change color.
  • Add onion and green chili pepper. Saute onions for about 5-7 minutes until they become golden brown in color.
  • Add tomatoes, spices and mix well. Cover with lid so that the tomatoes soften, for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the egg mixture and cook for 1-2 minutes, scrambling the eggs until cooked. Keep stirring continuously until cooked. Switch off heat.
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve with pav, roti or paratha.


Variations: You can add bell peppers, green peas or mushrooms to vary the taste of these scrambled eggs.
  • If using bell peppers or mushrooms, sauté them along with the onions.
  • If adding frozen green peas, add them along with the tomatoes.
  • If using fresh green peas, pre-cook them. 
Green Chili Pepper: I typically use Thai, Birdeye or Serrano Chili Pepper in my recipes. Don't forget to adjust to your taste. 
Reduce spice: Skip green chili pepper and reduce red chili powder.
