Scrambled Egg Curry


  • 4 medium cloves garlic, finely grated or minced
  • 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated or minced
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Kashmiri chili powder (see Tip)
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 8 large eggs, beaten
  • 4 warm paratha breads or whole-wheat tortillas
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


  • Step 1

    Combine garlic and ginger in a bowl; press with a spoon to make a paste.

  • Step 2

    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in turmeric; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is light brown, 5 to 7 minutes more. Stir in the garlic-ginger paste, coriander, chili powder and salt. Stir in water, partially cover and cook until the water evaporates, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Add eggs and cook, stirring constantly, until almost set, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve rolled in paratha (or tortillas) with cilantro, if desired.


Commonly used in Indian cuisine, Kashmiri chili powder lends a touch of heat and beautiful red color to sauces and curries. Any regular- to medium-heat chili powder can be use in its place. To bump up the heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper too.
