|I realize that with the new phone this kind of looks like meat, but it's not! It's eggs I promise|
I realize that this is my third post where eggs are the main ingredient. Do I have an egg fetish? No, but I think my cousin would beg to differ, heyyyy Theters! It's hard not to enjoy eggs! They are so versatile and all cultures seem to exploit them to their finest flavor.
The kura I made was a scrambled egg kura. I usually do a very basic version of this with just salt, turmeric and chili powder; however, today, I decided to turn up the flavor volume and add some garam masala and kala jeera. I also used green garlic instead of regular garlic. We had some in our freezer and I thought it would be interesting to use. If you don't have any green garlic, then regular garlic will work just fine. Behold the recipe below!
- 6 eggs
- 2 tsp kala jeera
- Red chili powder
- 2 tsb garam masala
- 2 small onions diced
- 1/8 cup chopped green onion or 1 cloves of garlic chopped
- 1/2 in. ginger diced
- Splash of milk
1. Dice the onions, green garlic and ginger and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a pan and add the garlic and ginger. Cook for 1 minute and then add the onions. Season with a small amount of salt and 1 tsp of kala jeera. Saute until the onions are translucent.
3. In a medium size bowl crack the eggs. Do 3 whites-only and 3 whole eggs, we do want to be heart healthy here people.....well, sometimes. Add the salt, milk, garam masala, 1 tsp of kala jeera, chili powder, and turmeric.
4. Vigorously whisk the eggs so that there is no white visible. I hate when scrambled eggs have a bunch of white showing. That's not a scrambled egg, that is a broken fried egg.....
|I don't know if mine is the way I like it, I think I found small bits of white when I cooked it.|
5. Once the onions are translucent, add the egg mixture. Cook on medium low. Constantly mix the eggs so they don't brown/burn on the bottom. Mix until the eggs soft and have set.

*Always serve this piping hot. Like I've said before, nothing is worse than a cold egg
*This goes well with rice, but would be equally delicious on its own or with any bread
* I mention to season the onions with some salt. The reason why I say this is so you can avoid over or under salting your dish. This is the advice I got from Giada de Laurentiis, she says "season every layer of your dish". Don't go over the top, add a small amount of salt to each layer. It's best to use your best judgement. Mistakes happen so it's not the end of the world! Unless its related to the atom bomb....then we are talking about something else.
*Also, I got a new snazzy droid that has a great camera on it, so I'm trying to take better pictures. Now I know some of the photos look odd with a weird yellow patch in the middle, I hope I figure it out in time for my next post!
Ease: Very easy to make! If you can make scrambled eggs, then add a few more minutes to prep and cook time and you can make this dish!
Ayurvedic Friendly: Yup
Yummy: I think I should have made mine more spicy, it got diluted when paired with the rice
