Akuri (Parsi-style scrambled eggs)

Akuri is a variation of scrambled eggs which is a traditional Parsi breakfast. Traditionally cooked with spices such as; turmeric and chilli powder alongside fresh tomatoes and red onion.

This dish is a special one for me, coming from a Persian background, my mum's side of the family, we grew up eating lots of delicious Parsi food which my Gran always lovingly made. I was so excited to ask my Gran for her Akuri recipe when I called her the other day, and I can't wait to call her and let her know how much we really enjoyed eating it!

To add some variety and spice to your breakfasts, Akuri is definitely a good choice.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil

  • 1/2 red onion

  • 1 beef tomato

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder

  • 1 tsp very lazy chillies

  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, dried is fine too and some extra for garnish

  • Pinch of salt

  • 4 eggs


  • Chop the onion and tomato and put in a bowl then add the very lazy chillies, turmeric, chilli powder, coriander and salt. Mix it all together and set to one side

  • Crack four eggs into a mug but don't mix them

  • Heat the oil to a medium-hot temperature in a large pan, once hot enough, add the onion mixture and continue to stir for one minute to ensure nothing sticks

  • Then add the eggs and stir to begin to scramble

  • Count to five, then mix again, repeating this step for about 3-5 times

  • Once your eggs begin to come together, remove from the heat as they will continue to cook

  • Now your eggs are ready to serve alongside a freshly made chapati or a thick slice of toast

I truly hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do. Enjoy x
