Scrambled Eggs - Egg Bhurji

Off late, there's lots happening on the home front. We've been having guests off and on and dinners are exotic...Mostly I'm out shopping for groceries and marinating and cooking and cleaning...etc..etc.. Phew!!! Its hectic and tiring, yet am quite delighted to do so..

This afternoon I thought of making myself some simple and basic food for lunch..and what better than a simple Egg Bhurji, served with some dal, rice and pickle...Awesome combination...isn't it..I know your mouth is watering as well :-) This is comfort food and very simple and fast to make..I love Egg Bhurji and I can eat it just as is...Delicious...

Ingredients: (Serves approx 2 persons)
4 eggs,beaten well,
1 large onion,finely chopped,
1 tsp cumin seeds,
1 large green chilli,finely chopped,
4 tsp oil,
Salt as per taste,
Green coriander, finely chopped,

1.) Heat the oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds. As it splutters, add the green chilli and onions. Stir fry until golden brown.
2.) Add salt as per taste to the beaten eggs and mix well.
3.) Pour this over the onions and mix well. Once the eggs have scrambled, keep stirring until you see the water has evaporated and oil starts to seperate. The colour of the eggs will turn golden brown and slightly crispy.
4.) Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot.

  2. Hi Jayashree,
    I posted a comment yesterday in your orange cake recipe about how wonderful and professional your blog is..As I am also from Bangalore(but not a native), I would like to know from where you buy your baking groceries like pastry flour, self raising flour, cream, heavy cream, white flour etc..It would be really helpful if you can show some pointers.
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Hi Jayashree,
    This is in continuation with my previous comment.Looks like the comment that I posted yesterday in the orange cake recipe is not posted due to some problem..I basically wrote something like this....
    I cam across your blog when searching fot bread recipes and its really a great find..What interseted me more was the fact that you too are from Bangalore..I have developed a special interest in baking and have been reading several food blogs..But unfortunately as most of the food bloggers are based in US, most of the ingredients that they mentioned are unheard of here in India..So my interest was some what put down..But seeing your recipes using the same unheard of ingredients, my interest has been rekindled with the hope that I too can get those ingredients in Bangalore itself..It would be really helpful if you can give me pointers about the shops from where you buy the following ingredients..
    white flour
    self raising flour
    oastry flour
    cream(is it the amul fresh cream?)
    heavy cream
    dark cooking chocolate(is it same as the new dark chocolate bournville from cadburys?)
    chocolate bark
    dutch processsed cocoa powder.(Actually I prepared choclate cake using the usual cocoa powder that we get and both the times the cake was so bitter that we had to simply throw away.Then came to know that there are two type are cocoa pwder--dutch processed and unsweetened)
    Do we get both the types here in Bangalore??

    I would really appreciate if you can help by giving the shop names that sell these items..

    Thanks in advance.
