Egg Bhurji Recipe

We love egg bhurji in our home, it is so flavorful and so filling. I have already posted a simple scrambled egg recipe, this one has more masala, more spice and is more tasty. 

We make this as a side dish for roti or for bread sandwich. Egg bhurji is the non vegetarian version of paneer bhurji. Both tastes awesome and is very famous all over India. 

Preparation time 10 mins | Cooking time 15 mins | Serves 2

  • Eggs - 2
  • Onions - 2 medium (chopped finely)
  • Tomato - 2 medium (chopped finely)
  • Green chillies - 2 (chopped)
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Garam Masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

1. In a pan, heat oil. Once the oil heats up, add the mustard seeds, urad dal and cumin seeds.
2. Once the mustard and cumin seeds splutter, add the onions, curry leaves, green chillies and salt.

3. Saute until the onions become translucent. Then add the tomatoes and allow to cook in medium flame until the tomatoes are nicely cooked and mushy.
4. Add all the masalas and mix well. Allow to cook for a couple of minutes.

5. Push the masala to one side and break open the eggs and scramble them well. 
6. Mix the eggs with the masala.

7. Once everything is mixed well and cooked, switch off.

1. You can add more vegetables to this. Peas, potaotes, mushroom can be added.
2. Ginger garlic paste can also be added.
3. You can add some left over rice to this mix and make it into a quick fix egg fried rice.

Until next time,
