When cultural adaptation is performed in good taste, I'm all in -- especially when it is in breakfast-for-dinner mode. Take this recipe for spiced Indian scrambled eggs, kicked up simply with onion, tomato and the heat of a small chile pepper. I have been told that it would not be part of a typical breakfast on the subcontinent, but the good folks at Heritage India in Washington have put such a dish on their brunch menu and it is a sleeper hit.

Heritage India co-owner Mitul Tuli says if she were making them at home, she would stir in a tablespoon of chili-tomato ketchup, and that is something I plan to try. For now, my own added touch of fresh mint at the end works just fine.
