This mildly spiced Indian scrambled egg recipe makes a great light lunch or light dinner. Tuck the curried eggs into a warm whole-wheat tortilla or an Indian flatbread, like paratha, which can be found in the freezer case at Indian markets. Serve with a dollop of yogurt.

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander

  1. Combine garlic and ginger in a bowl; press with a spoon to make a paste.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in turmeric; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is light brown, 5 to 7 minutes more. Stir in the garlic-ginger paste, coriander, chili powder and salt. Stir in water, partially cover and cook until the water evaporates, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add eggs and cook, stirring constantly, until almost set, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve rolled in paratha (or tortillas) with cilantro, if desired.
  • Commonly used in Indian cuisine, Kashmiri chili powder lends a touch of heat and beautiful red color to sauces and curries. Any regular- to medium-heat chili powder can be use in its place. To bump up the heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper too.
