  • Low calorie oil spray
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp ginger and garlic paste*
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp Finely chopped fresh coriander


  • Have a freshly boiled kettle of water ready to the side.
  • Spray the bottom of a non-stick frying pan with 5 sprays of the oil spray. Turn the heat up high until the spray begins to bubble on the surface of the pan, and then turn down the heat to a medium heat.
  • Add the cumin seeds and move them about in the pan to toast them and then add a splash of hot water.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add the beaten eggs and cook, stirring constantly until the eggs are scrambled and cooked.
  • Remove from the heat, garnish with the fresh coriander and serve.


*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.
