‘Egg Bhurji’ also known as Anda Bhurji is a famous Mumbai street food. It’s an Indian version of scrambled egg recipe with onion, tomatoes, coriander and ground spices. In Mumbai, you can come across multiple small food stalls or trucks selling hot spicy egg bhurji for breakfast or snacks. And of course, each one has their own unique, delicious recipe. This bhurji can be best enjoyed with pav or bread loaded with lots of butter.
In this post, I am sharing my recipe of egg bhurji which my family loves to devour for weekend breakfast. In this recipe, I like to use some extra onions but little tomatoes. Onions and tomatoes will be cooked thoroughly until soft, so it won’t overpower the dish. Also, I prefer finely chopped green chillies along with ground spices. Subtle heat from chillies, adds spicy notes to soft scrambled eggs. This convenient recipe can be enjoyed hot, direct from the pan. A little coriander looks good to sprinkled over top. Serve with warm toast to make a perfect, satiating breakfast or brunch. Such an appetising and easy recipe that even beginner can’t go wrong with it. So let’s jump to the recipe !!
4 small eggs
1 tbsp oil
2 medium sized onions
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
Salt as per taste
Fresh coriander for garnishing
Heat the oil in a large pan. Once oil is hot, add cumin seeds and let them sizzle for few seconds. Add the onion and gently fry for about 5-7 minutes or until softened. Stir in chopped green chillies.
Meanwhile, break eggs into a bowl and whisk it together.
Once onions are softened, add powdered spices – turmeric, red chilli, kashmiri chilli and coriander powders. Stir it all to combine well. Once raw smell of spices goes away (it takes few seconds), tip in chopped tomatoes into the pan.
Season the onion mixture with salt & add freshly chopped coriander. Stirring frequently until everything is combined and well cooked.
Turn heat to medium and pour whisked eggs onto the pan. Let it sit without stirring for couple of minutes.
Add garam masala over the top and gently fold eggs with onions mixture. Let it sit for few more seconds and then again fold it. Repeat the same until eggs are well combined and cooked to perfection. Scrape sides of the pan and mix it well.
Once eggs are perfectly cooked, remove from the heat. Sprinkle freshly chopped coriander over the top and serve hot with buttered toast.
For some extra flavours, you may also like to add peppers, spring onions or herbs. Substitute oil with butter for that additional smoothness.
You might enjoy this egg bhurji with chapati or roti instead of bread. For best results, relish it hot and fresh 🙂
Incase you don’t prefer eggs then try this recipe with paneer or tofu which is equally flavoursome.
