This recipe is for those days that you do not have time to cook or are craving something tasty but do not have the energy to make a full fledged meal. I made this recipe when we had a house full of guests for my daughter’s wedding and everyone loved it. To this date..I have nieces and nephews who talk about this dish and ask for it every time they visit! This is a very versatile dish and can be eaten with rice or any bread like naan, roti, etc.
Sesame oil: 3 tbps
Curry leaves: 20 leaves
Onion: 1 small onion finely chopped
Tomatoes: 1 small tomato finely chopped
Chili powder: 3 tbsp or to taste
Salt: To taste
Heat sesame oil in a pan (any other oil will work as well., but sesame oil is the best option. The smoky and nutty flavor of the sesame oil imparts its own special taste to the dish). When the oil gets warm, add curry leaves and let it splutter.
Add red chili powder, salt, chopped tomatoes and onions and stir well.
Cook until soft. Add few tablespoons of water to help the mixture get mushy. If you want to have this dish with any type of bread, then add quarter cup of water instead and let it boil before adding eggs.
Add eggs into this mixture.
Do not stir it immediately.
Let it cook on slow flame, fold it slowly and wait for it to cook a little more before folding it slowly again. Stir gently.
Done! Garnish with fried curry leaves or coriander (cilantro) leaves.
