Quick masala egg scramble

When you don't have the time or the patience to cook, here is a simple recipe for a side-dish which goes well with rotis.

Ingredients (enough for a generous portion for 1):
1 egg
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 green chilli, slit vertically and then chopped into 2
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp aamchur (or chat masala)
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste

1. Heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat
2. Drop in the green chilli and toast till white spots appear on it.
3. Add in the onions and salt and fry till golden brown.
4. Toss in the tomatoes and cook till mostly mushy.
5. Add all the masala powders and stir for a minute.
6. Break in the egg and mix till egg is scrambled and mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
7. Cook till eggs are done (about 1-2 minutes).
8. Adjust for salt, garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.

Surprisingly delicious!
