Aloo-Palak and Anda burji/ Scrambled Eggs with Potato and Spinach

We had this for breakfast yesterday with phulkas. I made aloo-palak stuffing for parathas but made phulkas instead. S wanted eggs with his phulkas and I just combined  aloo-palak with eggs and he loved it. He now insists that I make his eggs this way.

1 large potato peeled and boiled till soft and mashed
1 cup chopped washed and spinach
1 onion finely chopped
4 green chillies finely chopped(adjust)
4 -5 eggs
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste(optional)
1/4 tsp jeera/cumin pwd
1/4tsp dhaniya/corriander pwd
1 tsp lemon juice(optional)
1&1/2 tsp red chilly pwd
Salt to taste
A pinch of turmeric


1 tsp aavalu/mustard seeds
1 tsp jeera/cumin
3 dried red chillies, torn
6-8 curry leaves
A pinch of hing(optional)

  • Heat oil in a kadai/pan and add the mustard and cumin seeds. When they start to splutter, add the dried red chillies, curry leaves and hing (if using).
  • Add the chopped onion and green chillies and saute till translucent. Add the ginger-garlic paste(if using) and saute till the raw smell disappears. Add the chopped spinach, tumeric and saute for about 5-7 mins.
  • Add the mashed potato, salt, red chilly pwd,garam masala, cumin and corriander pwds, mix well and saute for another 5-7 mins.
  • Add about 2 tsps of oil and mix. Beat the eggs in a container and add it to the mixture , mix well and cook till the eggs are completely cooked. Switch off, add the lemon juice(if using) and garnish with cilantro and serve.
