Eggs for Breakfast collection No.4: Parsi Pora


A heavy spiced omelette , the Parsi pora is a Sunday breakfast favorite in Mumbai. For those who haven't heard, Parsis are Iranian descendants who settled in India centuries ago. They brought with them a beautiful interesting cuisine which has set a trend especially in Mumbai.


  1. 2 eggs

  2. 1 medium size onion

  3. 1 medium size tomato

  4. 2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander leaves

  5. 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste

  6. 1 green chilly finely chopped

  7. Chilly powder (Kashmiri chilly powder for better color)

  8. Turmeric powder

  9. Salt to taste

  10. Black pepper

  11. Oil/Ghee


1- Beat the eggs well in a bowl until light and frothy. OPTIONAL: Add a dash of cold water/milk. Season with salt.

2- A tip from an old Parsi lady: With your fingers, mix and mash well ingredients NO. 2-10. Set it aside to rest for 15 mins.

3- Add it to the beaten eggs and mix well.

4- In a pan heat some oil/ghee and pour the mixture. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 5 mins on each side until well cooked inside.

(Its ok if it breaks while flipping, the taste remains same :D )

5- Serve with butter smeared toasted bun/bread. Traditionally served with soft pav breads and sometimes even with fruit bun and jam!
