Egg Masala

On nights without Meredith I don't always go all-out when preparing dinner. I usually make eggs of some sort.

However, on this particular Thursday night, I decided to finally make an Indian egg dish. The week before I had seen a great one at Sunshine and Smile so I was ready to go.

The recipe called for a tablespoon of cumin seeds, and the result was a bit too cumin-heavy, so in the final recipe, I recommended 1 tsp instead. Overall, it's a nice flavourful egg dish and although it takes a short while to prepare, it's a welcome change to a folded egg with cheese.
