BREAKFAST: Spicy Scrambled Eggs – Akuri

My daughter Roshni says: After years of observing and searching and finally finding the right vessel in Ahmedabad, I have finally achieved Parsi akuri just like my grandmother’s! (yes, the pot/pan makes a difference). Akuri is basically scrambled eggs.

Akuri is basically scrambled eggs. You can have it for breakfast. Serve it with Rotli or toasted bread.

  • The way you make each dish changes based on the method and process used in cooking the eggs.

  • Ingredients  change the flavor of the spicy scrambled egg dish.

  • You can make it spicy, sweet and savory as in Bharuchi Akuri with dry fruits.

  • You can use akuri as a filling as in Akuri Pattice or simply rolled up in a Burrito, Rotli or Taco.

  • You can use it as a filling as in a sandwich (2 slices of buttered bread with akuri and grilled).
