  • 6-7 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoon Oil
  • 2 medium Onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger finely chopped
  • 2-3 Green Chilies Chopped
  • 2 medium Tomatoes finely Chopped
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Red chili powder ref note 1
  • 2 teaspoon Pav Bhaji Masala ref note 2
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tabelspoon Butter ref note 3
  • ½ cup chopped Coriander leaves


  • Break eggs into a bowl. Add two large pinch of salt. Using a fork beat well.
  • Heat oil in a skillet. Add finely chopped onion. Saute for 3-4 minutes until it is softened. Keep stirring to prevent it from sticking.
  • Add chopped green chilies, chopped ginger, and tomatoes.
  • Cook until tomatoes are softened. Smash the mixture with the back of the spoon to bring together the onion and tomato mixture. It will take around 4-5 minutes.
  • Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, pav bhaji masala, and salt. Mix well and cook for 1-2 minutes on low flame.
  • Sprinkle a bit of water if the onion mixture sticks to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add in beaten egg. let it cook unrest for 30 seconds. Then using a spatula mix in the egg with the onion-tomato mixture. Keep breaking any big lumps of egg mixture.
  • Switch off the flame when the egg is just done. Eggs will continue to cook even after you take off the pan from heat.


  1. Because we are also adding green chilies, use red chili powder accordingly. Pav bhaji masala has also chili powder in it. 
  2.  You can also use Chicken masala instead of Pav Bhaji Masala. 
  3. If you can get hold of Amul butter I would always recommend it. 
  4.  We are adding salt to the egg and also to the onion mixture. Amul butter also has salt in it. So add salt accordingly.
