Carrot Mutta Podimas / Carrot Eggs Stir Fry

How do you increase your protein intake? Eat eggs if you can. How do you give protein to the one who doesn't eat eggs (read as don't want to)? Sneak up with something they eat. Again this method doesn't even work the slightest in DH. He can smell eggs even from a mile away. This is for the little one who I am training to eat eggs. He likes the taste but just can't stand the texture. There are only a few ways he can eat eggs, like this poriyal here mixed with rasam or curd rice. Or like in this kulambu mixed with rice.
Ingredients:
Serves - 3
Carrots - 4 - medium sized (shredded)
Eggs - 2
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Garam masala - 3/4 tsp (Can substitute curry powder)
Method:
Heat oil in a skillet and splutter the mustard seeds, urad dhal and curry leaves. Add the grated carrots and fry in medium heat until it is cooked through. Add the garam masala, salt and saute for a minute. Crack open the eggs into the skillet and mix with the carrots. Continue cooking by stirring the mixture around until the eggs are scrambled and cooked. Serve as a side or as a filling for a sandwich. Also goes good as a stuffing for a khatti roll.
