Akuri Scrambled Eggs

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

This week I am sharing lots of brunch recipes!

For today I am doing an egg recipe, which is a variation on the classic Indian egg dish called Akuri (or Ekoori, depending how you like to spell it). It is a spicy version of scrambled eggs  and it goes very well with chapatis or other flat breads. I also served mine with bacon (not what I expect you would see anywhere in India, but…) I love bacon!

I was very happy to utilize some sweet  onions as well as a little egg crate that Le Creuset was kind enough to send.  And while I usually just park my eggs on the counter on a towel or in a small bowl while they warm up for cooking, this little egg crate is quite nice. I also suspect it is better for holding my hard cooked eggs in the fridge instead of letting those eggs roll haphazardly around my cheese drawer. And along with another egg crate I had got about a year ago, they will make a nice display for Easter eggs come next year.

Akuri Ingredients

Some Moms (I am one of these) love nothing more than some simple, but spicy food for a bit of brunching. And if I had a cup of spiced chai tea to go with, I might be whisked away in my imagination to some  far off land that “Smells of spice!” (as Colonel Brandon of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility might say).

I do hope you enjoy the day with your Mom or that special lady in your life.
