Egg Bhurjee (Hindi - Anda Bhurjee)

Egg bhurji or egg khagina (as it is known in Pakistan) or Anda Bhurji, is a dish popular in north and western India and Pakistan. It is often confused with scrambled eggs and the Parsi dish akuri but Egg Bhurji is a different dish in totality. The difference lies in its preparation and addition of sautéed chopped onions, chilies, and optional spices.[1] It is usually served with rotis (Wholemeal bread) or Indian Naan bread.

Variations[edit]

  • Paneer may be substituted for the eggs.
  • Tomatoes can be added to the beaten eggs before adding them into the pan giving the dish a tangy flavor.
  • Boiled potatoes cut into small cubes are added to make the dish more filling.
  • Peas, carrots, capsicum and other similar vegetables can be added to the dish, improving the dish's taste and its nutritional value.
