Green peas with scrambled egg

This is an easy and nutritious side dish. I made it especially for my daughter who loves greenpeas but not egg. But she loves this dish as egg comes with the peas :-)
You may also add diced carrots to this to make it more colorful and nutritious too.
This may also be used as a sandwich filling.
Easy recipe suitable for bachelor cooking too.

Onion - 1 small finely chopped
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder - 3/4 to 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Tomato - 1/2 finely chopped
Mustard and cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp each
