Akuri for brunch at home

Saturday brunch always seems to involve eggs. I woke up in a mood for akuri today. Akuri is spicy scrambled eggs, Parsi style. I first learnt the recipe from my friend Daljeet in California. I pair akuri with lightly buttered toast and a glass of fresh orange juice - a sumptious way to start Saturday, don't you think?

I attempted a visual recipe for you this time. Ingredients include 1 small red onion (to give the eggs an extra kick), 1 inch ginger, 2 cloves garlic, 4 green chilis, some fresh coriander, tomatoes, 1 tsp garam masala or dhania-jeera powder, 1 tsp cumin, 4 eggs beaten well with a few tsps of milk, a little butter.

Happy Saturday!

dear anonymous
i can so guess who you are :)
i miss you! sorry i haven't visited a romanian restaurant as yet. when i think of going out, i tend to debate between japanese, chinese, thai, vietnamese, indian, italian, french or mexican usually. and i wonder about vegetarian options at a romanian place.
anyways, i have heard of a place called famous sammy's on christie street which i will check out for you soon.
when are you going to send me some figs?

lulu,you just beat me to it.actually,after reading a's comments y'day. i figured out who the invisible person was and wanted to announce to you that the identity of the mystery has been solved.but the fig man gave himself up,anyway!
talking about scrambled eggs,that was my favourite in the good old bachelorhood days.i would stop by at bg on my way to vt station,have a quick s.e.on toast(my mom permitted me to have it as a special case)parsi style and dash off to take the used to be touch and go.also after tennis sitting with bhai in the lounge,we would order s.e.o.t.gone are those days.i am a shakhahari now,confirmed,no deem(egg),no maach(fish),no maangso(meat).

Lulu, made your recipe this morning. yummm. Def as good as cafe Leopold's Akuri (the only other I have had). A ate it up and we couldn't keep little J away from it! even thought she is too young for eggs. I guess she'll be a masala lovin' baby. Thanks for the tips... Kim

Lulu...i vouch for this fantastic dish..easy to make and so delicious. Also, so eagerly devoured by the members of the Ramabadran clan, at the reunion.

My wife Sue and I made Akuri today, and it was great. I ate Akuri 25 years ago at a country club in Bombay. Sue had never tasted it. Thanks

What a bunch of fags. Sandeep "and his wife Sue" (probably his kaamwali bai Sunita) eating akuri, just like they did "at a country club in Bombay". Could you get any more pretentious than this?

Are you kidding me?? " i tend to debate between japanese, chinese, thai, vietnamese, indian, italian, french or mexican usually. " What planet do you dream up this stuff on??

Question about Romanian places - do they do a lot of good fudgepacking in Romanian places?
