Garam Masala Scramble

This new twist on eggs was inspired by a Youtube video I watched a while back. A popular street vendor in India was making some amazing scrambled eggs. All I wanted was smell-o-vision at that point. I didn’t know what spices he used so I decided to use my imagination today. Thankfully, I have a very vivid one and knack for putting flavors together in my head based on what they individually taste like and the strength of the spice.

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons of Garam Masala

2 dashes turmeric

2 dashes cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon ginger

sea salt

1 teaspoon Rick’s Hot & Spicy All-Purpose Seasoning (Spicy blend)

black pepper

tomato chopped

onion chopped

2 cloves finely chopped

mushrooms chopped

3 eggs

1/2 Serrano pepper chopped

vegetable oil

Combine the eggs, mushrooms, serrano peppers, and onions in a bowl. Sprinkle sea salt and pepper to taste. Then add the garam masala, turmeric, cumin, paprika, ginger, All-purpose seasoning.

Whisk it all together.

On medium heat in a little vegetable oil fry the egg mixture. Add the tomatoes last.

I served with half an avocado on the side.
