Spicy Scrambled Egg recipe

This is how my grandma and my mum makes scrambled eggs, and I love it. Every time I make these, it brings back memories of my grandmother who was a great cook. These breakfast eggs are excellent for any time of the day and a great hangover cure.

It’s cooked with onions, tomatoes, curry leaves and a pinch of turmeric with three types of chilies. I suggest that you use well ripe juicy tomatoes for this dish. These scrambled eggs are not too spicy but if you find that’s too much chili you could reduce it according to your taste. I serve these wrapped in a tortilla or topped on toast.

To make it kid-friendly leave out all the chili. If you can handle a little heat then you can add little chili flakes or half a jalapeno pepper chopped finely.
