  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons red onion finely minced
  • 1 teaspoons green chili finely minced, jalapeno or other spicy chili works too
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro finely chopped
  • cup milk or water
  • 2 slices bread sourdough, multigrain or whole wheat

To serve

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup green chutney or sriracha sauce


  • Whisk together onion, green chili, turmeric, salt, cilantro and milk in a wide bowl (big enough to fit the sliced bread). Add in the eggs and whisk for a minute. Dip one slice of bread in the egg mixture and gently press down with a fork so the bread can absorb the egg mix. Flip the bread over and repeat on the other side.
  • Heat a non stick pan (you can also use cast iron) and apply ½ teaspoon of oil. Carefully place the soaked bread on the pan. Spoon and spread over some extra onions from the egg mixture on top. Cook on medium heat for a minute or until the bottom side starts to turn golden brown.
  • Turn over and cook the other side for a minute until it becomes golden brown. Repeat with the second slice of bread.
  • Serve hot with ketchup, sriracha or green chutney.
