The secret to making scrambled eggs is to aerate the mixture. The mixture will become white and fluffy. Heat a pan, add the butter. Make sure the butter does not get burnt. You can also use any refined oil.

Add the egg mixture to the pan and mix it.  Keep the flame low to medium. Keep on moving the mixture with the spatula so that the egg scrambles well.
