Mushroom Egg Bhurji

I make egg bhurji often as a side dish, it's very simple to make and tastes great too. So I was wondering how adding mushrooms to it will taste so to test it out made mushroom egg bhurji and like I had imagined, it made the dish even more delectable! From then on this has been a regular dish in my house. I almost always have mushrooms in my fridge and I make this as a side dish for rotis or even dosa and it also makes an awesome filling for sandwiches. Totally yum!

  • Mushroom - 1 pack
  • Eggs - 2
  • Onions - 1 large, chopped
  • Green chilli - 2
  • Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
  • Tomato - 1 large, chopped
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder - 1 tsp

1. Clean and chop the mushrooms and set aside.
2. In a pan, add the oil. Once the oil heats up, add the cumin seeds and curry leaves.

3. When the cumin seeds splutter, add the chopped onions, green chilli and some salt. Saute until the onions become translucent.
4. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell leaves.

5. Add the tomatoes, mix well and cook covered for a few minutes until the tomatoes are well cooked.
6. Add the turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder, mix well and cook for a couple more minutes.

7. Add the chopped mushrooms, mix in with the masala. Close the lid and allow the mushroom to cook for 5 minutes. No need to add water, the mushroom will leave out some water which is enough for cooking it.
8. Now, push the mushroom to one side of the pan and break open the eggs. Scramble at high flame.

9. Mix the mushrooms along with the eggs. Add more salt if needed.
10. Add the chopped coriander leaves and switch off.
