Folks, you’re going to love this Indian scrambled eggs recipe but first let me give you an update on what’s happening here.

So, I mentioned in my previous recipe, the Baked Sweet Potato with Feta and Orange one that, I’m currently volunteering at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

That has meant I have had to severely curtail my cooking activities temporarily over the 2 weeks the event is held.

But, I have managed to do this Indian scrambled eggs recipe for you. As well as some photographs from my volunteering time.

Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014

So, yesterday, or rather last night, it was the official opening ceremony of the games, of which I was lucky enough to be one of the volunteers.

My role was inside the stadium ushering people to their seats. It was a fantastic event and seen by over 40,000 spectators from within the stadium.

Here are just a few pictures that were the best ones I could take when you’re only able to take your mobile into the sporting event for security reasons.

Usually the Jock Stein stand at Celtic Park is for football, but at the moment it’s taken over for the hosting of the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony.

Looking towards the main stage which became the biggest ever TV before the party began.

A big welcome to Glasgow and welcome to Scotland to everyone!

Anyway, there’s more to come as I go to the Hampden Park Athletic stadium from Sunday to perform my next set of volunteering there.

But, let’s get right onto the Indian scrambled egg recipe now……

Finally The Indian Scrambled Eggs Recipe!

Indian scrambled eggs are one of my favourite weekend breakfasts. I’m a bit of a stickler with my routine during the week and mainly stick to my porridge or scrambled egg whites depending on what workout routine I’ve followed. So, this makes for a really nice and different scrambled egg option for Saturday or Sunday mornings.

Use 4 eggs and a large tomato for 2 people but keep the rest of the quantities the same. I’ve assembled everything in bowls in my recipe list, as I do with recipes when I want to make them as quick and as simple as possible.

  4. Add the diced onion and stir constantly, for about 5 minutes, until it is softened adding drops of hot water if it sticks to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add the ginger and garlic paste, chopped tomato, green chillies, salt and turmeric to the pan. Stir constantly for 2 – 3 minutes adding drops of hot water if the mixture sticks to the bottom of the pan.

  7. Remove from the heat, garnish with the fresh coriander and serve.
Recipe Notes

If you don't have ginger and garlic paste, a finely chopped garlic clove and similar sized grated piece of fresh ginger would do to substitute.

I quite like my Indian scrambled eggs served with some rye crisp breads or a piece of wholemeal toast. The choice is yours!

I noticed when researching the origins of Indian scrambled eggs online that the regions of India have different variations of this, so I’ve taken note of that for future potential postings!
