Naadan Scramled Eggs

As far as i know this is my "Yummy Mommy's" invention for my school lunch box. Madakku porotta-srambled eggs combo were the most frequent occupiers of my lunch box. Very simple with a colorful  tempting look, always tastes good warm or cold.  Can go well as a sandwich filler or roll chapathis/madakku porottas with this in as the filler...

You will need...

Eggs - 3 medium
Big onion - 1 chopped
Green chillies - 2 chopped
Tomatto - 1 big chopped
Curry leaves - few
Chilly powder - 3/4 - 1 tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2 tbsp

In a non stick pan saute onions and green chillies in oil. When the edges of onions start turning brown, reduce heat and add chilly powder. Add tomatoes, curry leaves and salt. Saute well in meduim heat until oil leaves to the sides. Break the eggs into it and scramble until well cooked. Serve with chappathis, madakku porottas or use as a sandwich filler.

If the tomattoes are over ripened or added more in quantity, (they might give out more water while sautéing) the preparation might look a bit mashed, to prevent this more oil can be added while sautéing tomatoes if needed. Wait until oil leaves to the sides of the pan to add eggs.
