Indian scrambled eggs

A brilliant brunch that's as easy to make for two as for a crowd.
Serves 2.

? a knob of butter
? half a red onion, finely diced
? 1 tin chopped tomatoes
? 4 eggs, lightly beaten
? 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
? salt and pepper, to taste

1 In a frying pan, heat the butter and add the onion. Cook until soft, then add the chopped tomatoes.
2 Stir well, then cook on a low/medium heat until the liquid has reduced.
3 In the meantime, in a clean and dry frying pan, toast the cumin seeds. Remove, then grind slowly with a little flaked salt.
4 Once the tomato-and-onion mixture has reduced, heat a little more butter and cook the beaten eggs in the pan that you?toasted the cumin in, stirring occasionally.
5 Once cooked to your liking, combine the eggs with the tomatoes.?6?Plate up and sprinkle over the cumin-salt mixture.


Tip: Use the tomato mixture above to make your very own baked beans! Instead of the eggs, add in a tin of cooked butter beans and stir through. Serve with toast and a poached egg. Lip-smacking!
