Eggs bhurji - recipe

If you are like me, breakfast in weekends are somewhat more advanced than they are on weekdays. They often include an omelet or scrambled eggs, and often turn into a brunch/lunch/long-meal-kind-of-thing. These days, I have a big crush on a more spicy Indian cousin of my weekend eggs - (blame it on the amazing Indian cuisine), and this has become one of my top weekend egg favorites. So, if you are looking to spice up your weekend brunch/lunch/breakfast - do give this recipe a try! 

Egg bhurji

For 2-4 persons you need:
6 eggs
3 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 green chili, chopped
1-2 onions, chopped
1 tsp shredded ginger
1 tsp shredded garlic
6 curry leafs
1/2 tsp cumin seeds 
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
fresh coriander

You do:
Add oil to a pan and fry cumin seeds and curry leafs a bit. Then add onions, ginger, garlic, chili, garam masala and turmeric. Then add the tomatoes. Fry for a bit and mix well, before you add the eggs. Taste if you want salt and garnish with coriander. Serve hot with bread or rice.

Colorful, tasty and easy to make. Enjoy!

  7. Oh we haven't had this for ages! It's too hot at the moment to eat eggs here, but this one's on my breakfast menu the day the temperatures drop a bit!

  8. Dearest Eli,

  9. Looks so tempting! Feel like taking a bite from your plate :D

  10. Egg bhurji...love it! And this one looks so tempting! Will have it for my breakfast tomorrow!☺

  11. Y not try Indian cottage cheese in place of egg!!! tat too tastes good n tempts to have it daily!!

  12. Sounds interesting, as long as those chilis are not too hot. I think we might give this one a try.

  13. Hmmm, might have to give this a whirl. I have never eaten my eggs this spicy but there is always a first time for everything. ♥

  14. I must pass this onto my DD, she loves Indian food. I've only eaten it once and wasn't a fan. I've never heard of garam salsa, is it also a hot spicy? I would probably want less curry and maybe not the pepper...sounds too hot for me, but I do love a good lazy breakfast/brunch on wkends, particularly in the winter.
