This super delicious Egg Bhurji is so easy to make and requires very basic ingredients. Ideally served with Dinner Rolls, making it the famous Bhurji Pav from Mumbai, this also tastes great with Roti or Bread. And if you are on a restrictive diet, you can have this with easy Coconut Buns (that I make at home) or simply eat as it is. A great breakfast idea, I make this at least twice a week. This also tastes exactly like the Mumbai street style Anda Bhurji, but since it’s made fresh at home with healthy ingredients and less oil, you can enjoy this recipe every now and then.
Before I forget to mention, this desi egg scrambled delicacy is Keto and Paleo Diet friendly. Ideal for Diabetic and Weight-Loss watchers, it also makes a great inclusion in Anti-Inflammatory and Gluten Free diet plans. Just replace the bread with Coconut buns and enjoy a hot plate of Egg Bhurjee!
This is a quick, easy, tasty and healthy recipe for breakfast or lunch. This masaledaar bhurji is a great alternative for vegetarians. This protein packed recipe is an ideal breakfast option. I’ve tried this with Malai Paneer, but you can use regular fresh Paneer as well or replace with eggs to make Anda Bhurji.
INGREDIENTS 200 Grams Malai Paneer / 3 Eggs 2 Tsp Oil 1 Tsp Cumin Seeds 1 Onion 1 Tomato 1 Green Chilli 1/2 Inch Ginger & 3 Garlic Cloves Paste 1/4 Tsp Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder 1 Tsp Turmeric Powder 1 Tsp Tandoori Chicken Masala or Garam Masala 2 Tbsp Coriander Leaves Salt
In a wide pan, heat oil. I used Olive Oil.
Splutter Cumin Seeds.
Now add the chopped Green Chilli.
Add a finely chopped Onion.
Sauté for a few minutes.
Now add the Ginger Garlic paste.
Sauté until the onions brown a little.
Add finely chopped Tomato.
Add Salt to this and sauté until the Tomatoes soften.
Now add the spice powders – Turmeric Powder, Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder and Tandoori Chicken Masala. The Masala is 100% veg. If you don’t have this, use Garam Masala. Adjust the spice accordingly.
Mix everything well and cook for a minute.
Now scramble the Malai Paneer and add to the masala. You can use eggs instead!
Gently combine everything. Malai Paneer is extremely soft as the name suggests and very dense, quite creamy. So you don’t want to mash everything and make it look all pasty. So be extremely careful while mixing it. You can use normal fresh Paneer too. Avoid packed Paneer since they are a little chewy and hard.
Cook for a minute more and add chopped Coriander Leaves.
Serve hot with crispy bread toast or serve in a Pav (Dinner Roll) for breakfast or you can eat this at Lunch with Roti or Naan.
