Easy Egg Bhurji "Indian Style Scrambled Eggs"

Print  Friendly and PDF
Bhurji: A damp curry. Egg Bhurji: Indianized scrambled eggs.

Egg bhurji is made with onions, green chili with optional use of spices and tomatoes.Its so versatile that its wide open for a multitude of adaptations. The preparation is very easy that even my 3-year old can do it, if I allow him that is. When I am at loss for what to make, this is what I end up doing as eggs are something that I have in my fridge always. Always.

  • 5 Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Whole milk
  • 1 Small Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Green Chili, finely chopped
  • 2 Stalks Cilantro, finely diced
  • A few grinds of the Pepper mill
  • Salt as needed
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil or more
  • Break the eggs into a bowl.
  • Add the cracked pepper, salt and milk.Whisk them to a frothy mixture.
  • Heat the Olive Oil in a pan. Add the green chili and chopped onions. Saute till the onions are well browned.
  • Add the egg mixture, stirring constantly with a spatula till they start forming into small clumps or even before. I like them well cooked.
  • Switch off the stove and add the chopped cilantro.
