The Table, Akoori
In the summer of 2020, Sophisticated Living Columbus endeavored to support some of our favorite fine dining establishments by publishing a special section that included recipes for their signature dishes. This recipe was included in that feature. Click here for more recipes, and please - support the capital city's vibrant food scene.
The Table is a locally sourced, picturesque restaurant downtown on 5th Avenue. This local favorite has had an impressive response to the needs of its staff and the greater community. One of its owners, Sangeeta Lakhani, has teamed up with others in the Franklin county restaurant industry to create “Service!,” a relief effort for Columbus-area hospitality workers.

Finely chop the shallot.
Dice the tomatoes.
Finely chop the cilantro. NOTE – should be approx.1/2 cup packed.
Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and set aside.
Lightly toast cumin, coriander and fennel seeds in a dry skillet. Keep your eye on them so they don’t burn.

Add the tomatoes and chillies and cook for further 5 minutes until softened, and let the juices cook off (you don’t want wet eggs!)
Add the garlic, turmeric powder and chilli powder. Fry for 2 minutes until fragrant.
Reduce heat to low and add beaten eggs. Stir well to mix onion paste and eggs. Cook for 1-2 minutes, depending on how you like your scrambled eggs (soft or firm).
