Variety of Food, Day 21: Akoori

Today we have plans to go out for dinner this evening, so I did my cooking for brunch. We had Akoori, an Indian scrambled egg curry.

From The Complete Asian Cookbook by Charmaine Solomon
8 eggs
4 tbsp milk
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tbsp butter
2 spring onions, chopped
1/2 jalepeno pepper, seeded and diced
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/8 tsp turmeric
2 tbsp chopped coriander (which is the same as cilantro)
1 tomato, diced
1/2 tsp cumin
Beat the eggs in a bowl with the milk, salt and pepper. Heat the butter over low heat in a heavy skillet until melted. Add the onions, jalepeno and ginger and cook until soft and fragrant. Add the turmeric, coriander and tomato, and few for another minute or two. Add the cumin and the egg mixture, and stir constantly until the eggs are creamy, but not stiff. Serve with warm whole-wheat tortillas or another Indian bread.

This is easy, and very flavorful, and now we're ready for our day. Get ready for tomorrow's marathon post!!

wow, I'm not even an egg person, but that sounds really good! I might have to try it... anything weird you can think of with halfing the recipe?

Can't wait for tomorrow's post. I'm glad to see that you might not just be posting the main course (turkey?). I have a request for the cranberry relish recipe :)

Half-away! I can't imagine any problems. And yes, I know some of these things have to be tried to be believed. Or just come out and visit and I'll cook wacky stuff for you!
