Akuri was introduced to us by a friend who made this deliciousness for breakfast. Honestly the preparation was so delicious that we ate it like it there was no tomorrow. Of Course the it wasnt a breakfast anymore and was more of a brunch. But I kept telling myself that i have to try this amazing recipe at home making it my way which is making it a little more healthy. After a couple of hit and try, I got the correct consistency of the final dish. And we all enjoyed it with my homemade multiseed whole wheat bread.
Variations to make Akuri
- Butter/ Ghee: Butter or ghee can be replaced with avocado oil or olive oil.
- Egg Yolk: One can also make it by using only egg whites. But the final dish will not be as moist and creamy as it should be. Egg yolks add moisture and a certain level of creaminess to the food. So unless advised by the doctor, I would not recommend using only egg whites.
- Parsley: Traditionally coriander is used, but one can always replace coriander with parsley. It will not change the taste much.
- Basil: To add an extra punch, you an even add a few leaves of finely chopped fresh basil to garnish.
Step – by – step process to make Akuri
Add salt and freshly crushed pepper to the eggs. Beat them well and keep them aside. Heat some butter/ghee, saute the onions till golden brown.
Add the tomatoes, green chillies, coriander, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and saute well.
Once the vegetables are sauteed well, add the egg mixture and slowly start stirring on very low heat. Do not leave stirring as the egg will get overcooked in no time.
Once the right consistency is achieved, serve and garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Akuri goes best with warm buttered buns. But you can serve it with bread or anything else if you want to. It also tastes amazing just by itself.
Tips for making the best Akuri
- Take whole eggs. Use the eggs with its yolk. It is very important as the yolk will give the creaminess and moisture to Akuri.
- Use eggs at room temperature only.
- While sauteing the vegetables, make sure there is no water left in the vegetables as that will make the Akuri watery. So while sauteing, make sure the water evaporates completely.
- Stirring the eggs into the vegetables is a work of patience. This has to be done at very low heat constantly stirring to get the right consistency and to make sure the water in the egg is evaporated without making the egg getting overcooked.
- Serve it immediately once akuri is cooked. Do not leave it in the hot pan as the egg will continue to cook and might get over cooked.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can Akuri be made with egg whites only?
Ideally no. I mean, it can be made with egg whites but it will not taste the same in terms of texture and flavor. Egg yolks add that creaminess to akuri. without egg yolks the dish will be very dry.
Why were my scrambled eggs watery?
There could be two reasons for this. First, if you are using only egg white, then this can happen. Second, if the vegetables are not sauteed well. the water of the vegetables then separates out. Make sure the vegetables are sauteed well till all the water from them is evaporated.
How can I make sure my eggs are not overcooked?
Before adding the eggs, make sure that the vegetables are sauteed well. Reduce the heat to the lowest. Then add the eggs, this will give you time to stir the eggs while they are cooking slowly.
