This recipe is quite the typical version of how people in India prefer to eat eggs! In fact, you will find many street vendors selling this version of eggs, which is eaten by many for practically all meals of the day. Indian scrambled eggs can be eaten with parantha, chapatti, or even the basic bread slices.

Heat the butter in a non-stick pan until it starts to melt. Add onion and green chili to it. Cook the vegetables for about 2 minutes or until onion turns light pink in color. Add tomatoes and continue cooking the vegetables for another 1 minute while stirring intermittently.

Season the vegetables with garam masala or cumin, turmeric, and salt. Stir in the eggs and cook everything while stirring continuously until the eggs begin to set. Stir in cilantro and serve hot scrambled eggs with plain parantha or chapati!


Do not overcook the eggs and cook it until just about set as eggs continue to cook even after turning off the heat. You can also add about ½ a teaspoon of paprika to spice up this egg preparation.
