Cry Me an Onion: Indian Scrambled Eggs

April 5th, 2009

My first “Cry Me an Onion” recipe was Indian Scrambled Eggs from Beth of Kitchen Courage. Normally, I make very Italian flavored scrambled eggs… Italian seasoning, garlic salt and Parmesan. I was excited to try something new. Thank you Beth for the submission!

Verdict: DELICIOUS!!!
Cry Factor: minimal (1 onion used)
Alterations: I thought I had tumeric but I didn’t so I threw in some curry powder. I added a little salt and pepper to taste.  Also, I used 1 egg yolk and 3 egg whites.

Indian Scrambled Eggs
(original recipe from Kitchen Courage)

1 cup liquid egg replacer (or 3-4 eggs, beaten)
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp cumin
dash of chili powder

1/2 T garlic, minced
roughly diced yellow onion, to taste
sprinkle of dates, dried, pitted, and chopped

Spray a small skillet or frying pan with cooking spray. Warm over medium high heat. Add the garlic, onion, and dates. Saute for about 3 minutes, or until the onions begin to brown and grow translucent.

Add the eggs, and then mix in the remaining spices. Cook as you would regular scrambled eggs, stirring often for approximately 5 minutes, or until there is no liquid egg remaining and the cooked eggs have reached your preferred consistency.

Enjoy these plain, with a chutney of your choice, or (if you’re like me) doused with ketchup. Yum!

Serves 1.
