Egg Bhurji

I could survive on Egg Bhurji and could eat it for pretty much every single meal of my life without getting bored. Unfortunately, we don’t make Egg Bhurji so often at home (more like once or twice in the past decade we have been married) because my husband is still scarred from eating Egg Bhurji every single day that he lived in a hostel while studying for his engineering.

Once kids came along, they preferred Scrambled eggs over Egg Bhurji, and this dish got sidelined even further until I made a solo trip to Mumbai and my mother-in-law’s neighbor – Mrs. Shinde, was kind enough to offer this tired and weary traveler some home-made Rotis and hot Egg Bhurji. That made me realize how much I missed it!

Once back home, I decided to introduce my kids to this dish, and while my younger one was disappointed that it was not the scrambled eggs she loved, the older one totally devoured it! Now, I know who got my genes ;-). Anyways, Egg Bhurji makes a great breakfast, and I love the fact that you can’t go wrong with this; you know what, if your omelette breaks while you’re flipping it, turn it into a Bhurji recipe – no one will know ;-).
