This recipe makes a fine scrambled egg breakfast. I'm not sure how or when Nepalese serve this dish, but it wouldn't be for breakfast. Chickens and eggs are very costly all over the Indian subcontinent and reserved for special occasions. This recipe will serve two for breakfast alone, 4 with sausages (but that wouldn't be exactly Nepalese).

  2. Fish out the Ginger and Garlic and discard.
  3. Stir in Spice Mix and fry stirring another 1/2 minute.
  4. Slowly stir in Eggs until they are well distributed. Continue to cook over low heat stirring frequently for about 5 minutes, then stir in the Peas for about 2 minutes (longer if they were fresh).
  5. Serve warm.
NOTES:
  1. Chili Powder:   Since this is a northern dish, relatively mild, flavorful Kashmir powder is appropriate - or use what you want and adjust heat to your desired level. 1 t Kashmir makes this dish very mild, 1 t Reshampatti, not so mild. For details see our Chili Page.
  2. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste, lrg=large
