Mutta Thoran - Scrambled Egg Indian Style

Egg is not usually a part of our daily diet. My husband and son like it though. I make it occasionally. This is a Kerala twist to the usual Scrambled egg. Thoran as you might have learnt from my blog is a term used to describe dry dishes that have coconut in it.


Egg 4
Onion 1
Green Chilli 1
Curry leaf few
Coconut 1/4 cup
Pepper 1/4 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Oil and salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Heat oil in a pan. Add the curry leaves and slit green chillies.

2. When it sizzles, add finely chopped onions.

3. Saute till it starts to brown a little.

4. Meanwhile, in a cup beat the eggs. Add to the pan along with some salt, pepper and turmeric.

5. Keep stirring in a medium flame till the egg starts to cook. Using the spatula keep breaking it.

6. I like my egg not to be wet. So I cooked till almost all moisture is gone. You can leave it wet and big pieces like the western scramble.

7. Add the coconut and mix. Cook for a minute or 2.

Serve as a side for roti or rice. You can use this as a sandwich stuffing as well.
