Egg Bhurjee (Hindi - Anda Bhurjee)

Egg bhurji or Anda Bhurji, is a dish popular in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. It is known as egg khagina in 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, Parathas or Indian Naan bread.

Variations[edit]

  • For a vegetarian version, 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.
