Egg Bhurjee | Indian Style Scrambled Egg

This post was published on 9 June 2011. It has been updated today after 6 years on the same day with fresh images and re-posted. I did not want to change the text that I wrote in 2011 due to some lovely memories and hence leaving it as it is 🙂 Enjoy the recipe.

This weekend was a very hectic one. We had to travel to Goa and return back to Bangalore. I could not enjoy much in Goa as an All Goa Bandh was declared on Monday the 6th June 2011. But I enjoyed the rains and had a good time with my family.


Egg Burjee

We thought of returning back to Bangalore by bus as we could not get train tickets. Though, we travelled back by a Volvo bus, we were damn tired. I could neither sit properly nor could sleep properly. Just that I had to spend 12-13 hrs in the bus. For time pass in the bus, we saw the Bollywood movie – 3 Idiot’s. This was the 2nd time I saw the movie and still I feel I should watch it again.

As soon as we reached Bangalore we rushed to office. Evening when we returned home, I could not even walk. I just slept off in the couch. My hubby had to attend a meeting till 10.00 PM. Soon after his meeting he woke me up and asked whether he should get something from the nearby hotel. I told him that we won’t get anything at this time.He immediately suggested that I prepare his favorite Egg Bhurjee. Egg Bhurjee means scrambled egg. He helped me prepare chapatis and I cooked the Egg Bhurjee. We had a wonderful dinner at the end of the tiring day. If you like this recipe, do try the egg bhurjee with broccoli and egg bhurjee with prawns which were successful experiments in my kitchen.
