Indian style Scrambled Egg Roll...YES, I am really posting this one!!!

Tentative steps back into the kitchen todayand 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 eggsIMO ( 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 touchI 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!! J

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


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
  • Ketchup
  • 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!!


  1. And what's wrong with posting an anda bhurji recipe? You do it differently from me (I don't add ginger or garlic), and IMO (I don't do humble either), your way is better.

    1. you are sooooooooooooooo good for my ego Natasha :-) <3

  2. Woooh! those are way too many chillies for me.I won't use any in mine :) Many thanks for this Egg bhurji roll recipe, i like the simplicity of it, and will surly give it a try

    thanks again

    1. LOL...exactly my thoughts when I saw the pic after eating the roll!! :-D ..but seriously try with only green chili and remove the seeds -it adds a brilliant taste without the heat...do try and let me know how did it go...

    2. You've said exactly what my mom says after i find green chillies in my food, "won't be spicy, its just for the taste, Ive removed its seeds you know".
      But guess what still spicy :-o but that's just me,everybody else swears by this seed removing technique.

      Take care :)

    3. hawww..so you have heard it all and are still not a convert!!!! :-(

    4. No, just cant, tolerate them :), the more rich, creamy and bland the food is, the better.just like the Fried Crumbed Chicken you have on your website

    5. oh well, as you are you are chking out the rest of the blog ;-)..thank you :-) ...btw, a cpl of rich, creamy and not too spicy dishes coming up this week
