About Egg Bhurji

It won’t be wrong if I’d say, that anda bhurji (egg bhurji) is a staple food of Mumbai.

This is super simple recipe with wonderful flavours packed with nutrition and can be had at any time of day.

This recipe comes together in just under 20 minutes and is best paired with pav (Indian bread), paratha or roti.

In Mumbai, during the evening time, you will come across many food carts selling bhurji pav where the pav (Indian bread) is toasted with butter and served along with this spicy flavourful anda bhurji.

Bhurji pav is a heavenly combination and is loved by all from elders to kids.

This anda bhurji is quite similar to the Parsi dish Akuri. The main difference lies in the texture of these dishes.

Akuri is semi-dry and a little bit on the runny side whereas bhurji is dry but at the same time moist.

You can serve egg bhurji literally for any meal of the day! I often make egg bhurji for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

In case I have some leftover bhurji, I place it between the bread slices and toast them. And there you go, an egg bhurji sandwhich is ready to munch! I love to have it as an evening snack relished with tomato ketchup.

The authentic recipe for making anda bhurji (egg bhurji) calls for basic veggies that are onion and tomatoes.

At home, I usually make two types of anda bhurji. One is without any spices or herbs and the other with flavourful spices along with a hint of roughly crushed ginger.

If you want, you can tweak the egg bhurji recipe and add vegetables such as mushrooms, spinach, and capsicum to enhance the nutritional value of this bhurji.

Apart from serving this anda bhurji with bread or roti, I often like to add millet roti such as raagi roti which makes a perfectly healthy meal option, especially for lunch.

This simple anda bhurji is popular across India and made slightly differently depending upon region to region.

Note:

While cooking eggs, make sure the flame is medium.

I have used pav bhaji masala here. In case you do not have pav bhaji masala, you may add garam masala or chicken masala. I sometimes even add kitchen king masala.

I personally, break the eggs directly into the base, but you can break the eggs in a bowl add salt and gently whisk them before adding it to the onion tomato masala.

For the vegetarian version, you may substitute eggs with paneer. Just scramble the paneer by hand before adding it to the masala.
