Breakfast in India is never boring! Akuri is the Parsee version of scrambled eggs, eaten in western Indian cuisine. This recipe is a combination of spicy scrambled eggs and mushrooms. It can be combined with green peas or thinly sliced fried okra, or it is delicious on a bed of crisp-fried Straw potatoes. Serve with good-quality bread, such as sourdough, Turkish flat bread or a baguette, or with Pooris for a proper Indian breakfast.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 large swiss brown mushrooms or other, cleaned and stalks removed, such as
1 tablespoon crushed black peppercorns
2 tablespoons sesame oil
6 large eggs
50g fresh or frozen peas
1 tablespoon coriander leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon green chilli, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
1/2-1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
30g Ghee
or 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the grill to a medium heat or preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Put the mushrooms, pepper and sesame oil in a large bowl and stir carefully to coat well. Marinate for 2 minutes.
  3. Grill the mushrooms for 5 minutes, or cook them in the oven for 7–8 minutes.
  4. Lightly beat the eggs in a medium bowl, then stir in the peas, coriander, green chilli, onion, turmeric, chilli powder and salt.
  5. Heat the ghee or oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook, stirring gently, until scrambled, about 3 minutes. Fill each mushroom with some of the scrambled egg and serve with lemon wedges.

Alternatives

  • You can use this recipe as a guide for cooking other egg breakfast dishes. For example, make a masala omelette by combining the eggs with the spices and herbs. Alternatively, make eggs en cocotte with a difference – break the whole eggs into an ovenproof dish, sprinkle with the spices and herbs and bake in an oven preheated to 160°C for 20 minutes, or until set to your liking.
