Khagina is an Indian version of the Western scrambled eggs cooked with sautéed onions and some spices and fresh herbs. It is mostly served for breakfast and since I am not a savory breakfast eater and prefer something sweet not too sweet, I serve this for dinner or lunch and sometimes make it on unplanned days:)


  • Eggs-4 large
  • Onions-2 medium, sliced
  • salt- to taste
  • Turmeric powder-1 tsp
  • Green peppers-3-4
  • Ginger-garlic paste- 1 tsp
  • Oil-1-2 tbs
  • Cilantro-1 tbs, chopped


1. Heat oil in a pot and saute the onions until they turn translucent.

2.Add ginger-garlic paste, and fry it for a brief minute and add the green peppers.

3. Add salt, turmeric powder, and the fresh cilantro and mix.

4. Crack all the eggs into a bowl and pour them on the sauteed onions and cover the pot with a lid and reduce the heat to a medium.

5. Cook for four minutes and then uncover the lid and stir gently to mix the eggs and onions.

5. Reduce the heat to the lowest and cook for a minute and turn off the stove.

6. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot.

7. Enjoy!
