Egg with garlic chives

Had brought a bunch of garlic chives during last visit to farmers market...The plan of buying was to click...But got hooked with many other things that I totally forgot about it. That lost its beauty being hidden in my refrigerator...Anyways cooked it up with egg to make a delicious side...

Eggs-3 nos
Onion-1/2 of big one(chopped to small pieces)
Tomato-1 small(finely chopped)
Green chili-1 no
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Spring onion(green part)-2 tbsp(chopped)
Salt to taste
Garlic chives-3 tbsp(chopped)
Pepper powder-1 tsp(finely crushed)
Oil- 2 tsp

Method of Preparation:
1. Heat oil in a pan. Add the chopped onions and fry till it turns translucent.
2. Add the green chilies,turmeric and mix well, then add tomatoes. Cook for few minutes till it turns soft.
3. Add the garlic chives to this and mix well.Cook for a minute.
4. Add the required amount of salt.
5. Now reduce heat to low and break the eggs into it. Mix it well with all the other ingredients till it gets cooked.
6. Add the pepper powder and mix well. Don't heat the egg once it sets. If overcooked  egg turns out dry.Serve warm with rice/flat breads.
