Fried Egg with Green Onions and Chat Masala (Indian seasoning)

Here’s a recipe for a fried egg that pops with flavor from the Indian spice mixture, chat masala. If you have 5 minutes and 4 easy-to-find ingredients, you can whip up this quick healthy dish — perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

INGREDIENTS + DIRECTIONS

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon avocado oil to pan. When oil is hot, add 1 large handful of thinly sliced green onions.

Sauté green onions until hot and starting to soften. Remove sautéd green onions to a plate and reserve.

Add another teaspoon of avocado oil to the pan. Heat oil until hot. Crack one egg and let it slide onto the hot pan.  Sprinkle the reserved green onions over the egg.

Cook the egg to your liking. Then remove the fried egg and green onion OR flip the egg over and fry it on the other side.

Serve sprinkled with chat masala — one of my favorite Indian spice mixtures, made with exotic ingredients like black salt and green mango powder. You can find chat masala at an Indian grocery store, a Korean supermarket, or on Amazon. And, you can make your own chat masala using a recipe like this one from Lisa’s Kitchen.

Serve with spinach (such as the frozen Trader Joe’s organic or pesticide-free chopped spinach, just heated through) and fresh marinated red onions, a wonderful Peruvian condiment. To make the marinated red onions, I follow  the recipe shown here, but I use only red onions, lime juice, and salt — which is the “recipe” I was given by a waiter at La Canela, a very nice Peruvian restaurant in Rockville, Maryland.
