    I put very low amounts of chilli so my daughter can eat it - and she LOVES it! yet another way to get her to eat eggs! Eggs and tomato go well together I think! and I suppose you could make this oil free and with just tomatoes, eggs and fresh coriander for a spice free dish! But I make it as above and the whole family can enjoy it (I add in WHOLE green chillies because as soon as you cut into a chilli it will release spice, whereas throw it in whole and it contains it, not affecting the dish overall.
