Egg Bhurji ~ FANCY Scrambled Eggs

It feels like time hasn’t stopped since this past weekend. We have been on a roll since Friday and with all of our busyness – there has always been the need to cook something QUICK but yet delicious…. So here is a twist to regular scrambled eggs and thus it gets a glorified named “BHURJI”… I came across this recipe ages ago, and when I was working out, I remembered this; since I had an hour to come home, shower, make dinner, eat dinner, get ready and leave – so here is what I quickly whipped up…. a fancy scrambled eggs 🙂


  • Eggs – 3
  • Milk (Optional – I use this for scrambled eggs, so just like this be)
  • Onion – 1 medium chopped
  • Spring onion – 2 strands – I did this for color, so its definitely optional
  • Bell Pepper – I wanted to use red, but it didn’t look edible, so I went with yellow. Green works great too
  • Green chillies – 2 chopped fine
  • Cumin Seeds
  • Garam Masala – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric – a pinch
  • Coriander – Freshly chopped 🙂
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Alright, so I heated the pan with some oil and added the cumin seeds. Next went in the onions, green chillies and the spring onions. I let it cook for a while. Next I added the pinch of tumeric and the garam masala powders. You can less or more of the spice. I added a bit of water to help the cooking process.

I whisked the eggs with a little milk while the stuff in the pot was cooking. I added the Capsicum / Bell pepper and let that cook until it was almost done. Then for the grand finale the eggs. I pushed all the ingredients in the pan to one side and made room for the eggs and let it cook for a little bit on its own, before I mixed everything up.

Add the required amount of salt and pepper and it was ready to be served!!!!  Garnish with some freshly chopped coriander. I had some wholemeal pita at home, so it went along great!!!

Note: You can always substitute the egg with Paneer or Tofu and make a cool dish out of that!
