Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, ghee or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 green or red chilli, finely sliced
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • ½ red pepper, finely chopped
  • 4 large British Lion eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • 2 chapattis

Method

1. Heat the butter or oil in a pan then add in the cumin seeds. Cook for 20 seconds then add in the chilli, spring onions and peppers and cook for a further 30 seconds.
 

2. Meanwhile, lightly whisk the eggs (Gizzi uses free range), milk and a pinch of salt together until all the ingredients are just combined and the mixture has one consistency.
 

3. Pour in the egg mixture and let it sit, without stirring, for 20 seconds. Stir with a wooden spoon, lifting and folding it over from the bottom of the pan. Let it sit for another 10 seconds then stir and fold again.
 

4. Repeat until the eggs are softly set and slightly runny in places, then remove from the heat and leave for a few seconds to finish cooking. Give a final stir and serve the velvety scramble with toasted chapattis.

For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
