Tentative steps back into the kitchen today…and this is what I make for breakfast!! Don’t roll your eyes...I did say in the intro that I am LAZY!!...and btw, I don’t like the regular phoren style scrambled eggs…IMO ( H missing deliberately since I don’t do Humble!!) Indian Style Scrambled Egg Roll or Anda Bhurji Roll as us LS desis call it, are heavenly when cooked to death with a desi touch…I don’t like tomatoes in mine but feel free to add if you want...and yes I know I went a little crazy with green chilies but then if you notice seeds were removed and I had a huge mug of cold coffee to chase down the chilies!!

Anda Bhurji Roll/ Indian style Scrambled Egg Roll
- Eggs, 4
- Milk, 1-2 tbsp
- Onions, chopped, 2
- Tomatoes, chopped, 2 (I don’t add, but most people do)
- Garlic, finely chopped, 4-5 cloves
- Ginger, grated, abt 1 tsp
- Green chilies, chopped, 2
- Salt, to taste
- Red chili powder, ½ tsp
- Fresh green coriander, 2-3 tbsp
- Oil, 2 tbsp
Instructions:Heat oil in a pan. Sauté onions and garlic till soft. Add tomatoes (if using),ginger, green chilies and continue to cook on low heat till onions turn light golden brown.
In the meanwhile, in a separate bowl lightly whisk eggs with milk, salt and red chili powder.
Pour the egg mix into the pan and cook stirring continuously till egg mix starts setting. Lower the heat and continue cooking till the mix is completely dry (i.e. there is no life in it!!). Add coriander and mix. Done!! (tastes best when hot)
For the roll…
- Parantha/Roti/ Tortilla
- Mustard or Kashundi
- Extra green chilies, finely chopped
- Lettuce, to make you feel healthy !
- Tomatoes, if you want to feel even more healthier!!
Take the bread of your choice and warm it up. Spread ketchup plus mustard. Add lettuce, tomatoes, a fair amount of bhurji and then some more. Top it up with some more green chilies, roll it up and gobble gobble!!
