Curried Scrambled Eggs

You can take your scrambled eggs to a whole another level by adding some amazing weight loss spices such as paprika, turmeric, Asafoetida, green chilly peppers, and other vegetables!

Important: Do not worry about all of the “extra” ingredients for the curry flavor. Try to make it with whatever you have in your pantry and refrigerator. It is a super-forgiving recipe.

Ingredients:

[Serves 4]

  1. Eggs – 8 Large or 12 Medium
  2. Onion, chopped – 2 cup
  3. Bell Pepper chopped – 1 cup (use green/yellow pepper or any other sweet pepper you can find)
  4. Other choices of veggies from the approved vegetable list – 1/2 cup (I used a handful of fresh green peas and spring onions today)
  5. Tomato, chopped – 1 cup
  6. Cilantro or Coriander, chopped – 1/2 cup for garnish
  7. 2-3 Green chili, chopped long and thin (optional if you don’t like spicy, skip this)
  8. Tempering Spices | Pinch of Asafoetida, Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp, Mustard Seeds: 1/2 tsp, Nigella Seeds 1 tsp
  9. Salt – to taste
  10. Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
  11. Black pepper powder – 1/4 tsp
  12. Cayenne pepper or red pepper powder- 1 tsp (optional)
  13. Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  14. Olive Oil (or alternate Ghee or coconut Oil) – 1 tbs
Method:
  1. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them with salt and black pepper and set them aside.
  2. Heat Olive oil over medium-high heat in your largest non-stick pan.
  3. Once the oil has warmed up, add the tempering spices, immediately followed by onion green peas, green chilies, and tomatoes (or other choices of veggies).
  4. Fry until onions are browned. Then, add salt, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper, and coriander powder.
  5. Mix well and add the eggs mixture and stir and cook for about 3-5 minutes while stirring and letting the egg cook through and scramble
  6. Add spring onion and cilantro, mix well, and turn off the heat.
  7. Serve immediately with a side of whole-grain bread, whole-grain tortilla, or use for lettuce wraps!
  8. Make extra to pack in your meal prep boxes for later.

Pictured below is a version I made the other day with lots of colorful vegetables and it turned out great as a complete one-pot weight loss meal!

I make mine with a lot more vegetables to make it a full meal!

If you have ingredients on hand, here is another recipe you could try. A curried scrambled tofu is delicious, so is this curried scrambled paneer (cottage cheese).
