Sarah – I am visiting my parents right now plus we have family over. My parents have been making varieties of food each day that goes by. One of my favorite foods is my dad’s Khageena. Khageena is a breakfast dish. Khageena is a Pakistani version of scrambled eggs. It sure is a crowd pleaser. it’s scrambled eggs with light seasonings and veggies topped with cilantro and green onions. Most people enjoy Khageena with bread or parathas, unlike Vaquas he loves Khageena with toasted croissant but that’s ok as well.
WHAT IS KHAGEENA?
Khageena is a popular breakfast dish in Pakistan. This is a Pakistani style scrambled eggs recipe made with onion, tomato, Serrano pepper, and spices. It goes well with paratha, bread, or even a croissant. It’s Pakistan version of the scrambled eggs so you know it’s filled with flavor.
HOW TO MAKE KHAGEENA?
CAN YOU ADD VEGGIES TO IT?
OMG! Yes, you can every much so. May I suggest adding some mushrooms, bell pepper, spinach and cherry tomatoes. I can imagine that would taste so good and loaded with vitamins.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OMELETTE AND SCRAMBLED EGG?
Omelette is folded in one piece and not stirred very often while cooking. Scrambled eggs get pushed around in the frying pan so you can get little chunks of eggs as the end result.
