Spinach and Egg Mezhkkupuratti

This simple and healthy recipe comes from my mommy. It has subtle flavors but works wonderfully well as a side dish with rice or rotis. 


1. Spinach - 4-5 cups finely chopped
2. Eggs - 3 large
3. Garlic - 4-5 cloves finely chopped
4. Red onion - 1 medium sized finely chopped
5. Green chillies - 3-4 finely chopped
6. Black mustard seeds - 1 tsp
7. Vegetable oil - 2 tbsp
8. Ground turmeric - 1/2 tsp
9. Ground black pepper - 1 tsp
10. Curry leaves - 1 sprig
11. Dry red chillies - 3-4 Preparation: 

1. Heat oil in a pan or wok and splutter mustard seeds and red chillies. 
2. Add chopped garlic, onion and green chillies. Saute for a minute. 
3. Add turmeric and black pepper powder. Saute for about a minute. 
4. Add spinach and salt. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until spinach is cooked. 
5. Make a small depression in the middle of the pan and crack the eggs into it. 
6. Scramble slowly from the middle outwards until the eggs blend in with the spinach and is cooked completely. This would take about 5 minutes. 
7. Add the curry leaves. Remove from the heat. 

Tip: I occasionally add 1/4 cup of grated coconut towards the end to make a spinach egg thoran. 

Enjoy! :D
