  • serves 2
  • A little effort

Whip up Indian-style scrambled eggs to make a healthy, filling meal for two. Make it spicy with chilli and scatter with coriander for a twist on a favourite.



  • onion 1 small, finely chopped
  • oil
  • green chilli ½, seeded and finely chopped
  • ginger grated to make 1 tsp
  • turmeric a pinch
  • tomato 1, roughly chopped
  • eggs 6
  • butter
  • chilli powder a pinch (if the green chilli is not hot)
  • coriander a handful of leaves, chopped
  • paratha 2, warmed through to serve


  • Step 1

    Fry the onion in a little oil in a frying pan until it softens, add the chilli, ginger and turmeric and stir for a minute, then add the tomato and season well. Beat the eggs lightly together. Add a knob of butter to the pan and the chilli powder if you need it, then add the eggs and stir them so they scramble with the other ingredients. Scatter on the coriander and serve with the parathas.
