Masala Scrambled Eggs and Toast with a difference (Super Easy)

Necessity is the mother of invention – I use this like an everyday mantra. Mainly because unless it is necessary, I hardly ever deviate from mundane routine…why rock the boat when it works eh?! So when I fell ill with “man-flu” (also known as mild congestion and discomfort which may cause excessive delusion that the world is falling apart around you), I had to be creative. Nothing took my fancy but I needed nutritious food that would be filling at the same time and provide enough carbs for energy to look after my little monsters. So “Masala Scrambled Eggs on toast” was born!

Growing up I had many variations of eggs on toast…the one I remember and love and miss like crazy is an immensely palatable dish called “bread omelette”. Every time I used to be on a train (which was often in my childhood when air travel wasn’t so common) – I would have a bread omelette sold on the trains. There would probably be better variations in a Michelin star restaurant, but I wouldn’t trade that specific memory for anything!

I’ve tried to make bread omelette, and I’ll be honest, it doesn’t suck but it also doesn’t taste the same as I remember it being, so I decided to make this particular variation because I think this is the closest I am going to get!

So what’ll you need?

1 small Onion – finely chopped

2 cloves of Garlic – finely chopped

1 Small Chilli – finely chopped

2 Medium Eggs

1 Slice of Bread – Toasted and chopped into squares like croutons

¼ tsp of Turmeric Powder

¼ tsp Garam Masala

Salt to taste

A bunch of Coriander Leaves, chopped

A Small knob of butter or two teaspoons of oil

Method: 

Melt the butter (or heat the oil) in a frying pan. Add the chopped onions, garlic and chilli to the pan.

Fry until the onions are translucent and the raw smell of the garlic disappears. Should take about 3-4 minutes.

Break the egg into the frying pan and either use a fork, a wooden spoon or a whisk to mix together the ingredients. Fry for a minute.

  1. Anitha, It is somehow very true that when one is sick, we often resort to comfort food that is often associated with fond memories of travel, childhood etc and somehow the food makes us recover faster – dont you think? Being a south indian, I only crave for Rasam rice when sick and magically I am fine within a few days, ofcourse the meds do their bit too but psychologically, food is comfort esp when sick. Hope you are okay now.
