Indian Scrambled Eggs on Naan Bread

Pin It
I should begin by saying I am all for eating breakfast for lunch & dinner. I am also up for dinner that can be thrown together and be ready to eat in under 10 minutes. I would recommend trying to track down a good quality naan bread, I used a garlic & coriander one from Sainsbury's but you could always make your own if you fancied the challenge. I would have photographed the whole process but the meal was finished in a flash, almost as fast as we both scoffed it down!

Serves 2
You will need-
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/2 green or red chilli, deseeded & finely diced
  • 1cm square ginger, grated or finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander plus extra for serving
  • 1 tomato, peeled and cubed
  • 4 eggs, beaten lightly
  • 2 Naan breads
Preheat your oven to 180C and then get a frying pan with the oil in on a medium high heat. Whilst the frying pan is heating place the naan bread in the oven. Add the chilli, ginger, spring onions, cumin, turmeric, salt & pepper to the pan and fry for a 5 minutes before adding the coriander & tomato. Give everything a good stir and cook for another minute before adding the egg. Keep stirring the egg and take off the heat as soon as they're cooked. This shouldn't take more than about 2 minutes. To serve, spoon the egg mixture onto the naan bread and top with some more coriander.
Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am!


  1. This looks delicious! I love making naan, but don't always know how to turn it into a meal. I'll definitely be trying this.

    1. I'm yet to make my own naan, would love to hear some pointers!

  2. I've just made an improvised version using slow roasted tomatoes left over from last night, I also used the sunflower oil they came in to fry it all together. I used half a tsp of ground ginger and half a small onion. My chilies where pickled and from a jar but tasted great and they last much longer than fresh ones. I dropped the turmeric and coriander as I don't have any. I put my salt and pepper on at the very end just before eating and let me tell you it was dammmmm good :D

    Thank you for the idea :)
