Mushroom and Egg Tarkari

Contributed by Siddiqua Haswarey

This recipe is more or less a personal creation. A "Tarkari" in the Indian language is basically a side dish eaten with whole wheat bread. I normally cook without measurements, so you may want to play around with the veggies quantities a bit, or even the spices for that matter. One thing's for sure though, its light, healthy, nutritious, delicious and fun to cook. I am sure you all will enjoy it. InshaAllahu Ta'ala. - Siddiqua

Preparation Time: 15 mins.
Serves: 6


200 gms Button Mushrooms - Chopped
200 gms Capsicum - Diced
8 Eggs - Boiled and Diced
2 Large Onions - Diced
3 Green Chillies - Chopped
Olive Oil (preferably Extra Virgin Olive Oil) - to fry


1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
2/3 Tsp Cumin Seed Powder
1/2 Tsp Ginger paste
2/3 Tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Fry the Onions in the Olive Oil until soft and translucent. Add the chopped Green Chillies, Ginger paste and stir-fry for sometime. Add the rest of the spices except the freshly ground black pepper. Stir fry for a about a minute and a half. Add the Mushrooms and stir-fry until dry. Add the Capsicum and salt. You want to cook this until it is dry and the Mushroom is tender. Add the eggs and stir-fry for about two minutes not too long though, because then the yolk pieces begin to break up too much. Add the Black pepper and serve. Al-Hamdulilaah!

Note: You can make your own changes according to taste by adding less spices etc. Or even cooking the Capsicum just a little bit to keep the crunch in them, I like them that way. You can also leave out the ginger all together, that can make a big difference in the taste, but it still will be just as delicious, InshaAllah.

Say Bismillah and eat!
