EGG BHURJI or KHAGINA

What’s a quick breakfast recipe? Breakfast for me always has to be eggs! I love to have eggs for morning snack, well anytime of the day actually! :) – scrambled on toast, stuffed omelettes, sunny side up etc.. just love ‘em any style! Here’s a quick breakfast recipe – Egg Bhurji or Khagina as it is called back home. I recall having this recipe for breakfast most of the times during school days. I certainly think my mum chose to make this, because it is a quick one, and mainly because it uses eggs! Yes, I definitely inherited the liking for eggs from her!! ;)

I’ve seen various versions of Egg Bhurji, some like using lots of sliced onoins, some prefer keeping it slightly watery and so on. But I find this recipe very comfortable with parathas, bread (whip up a quick sandwich!!), or even rice! So, the next time you are planning to have eggs for breakfast, do try this one! :)

Enjoy!

Cuisine: Indian | Cooking time: 20 mins | Serving: 2 people

Ingredients
Eggs – 4
Potatoes – 1 small (thinly sliced) optional
Onions – 2 sliced
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Green chillies – 1 no (chopped)
Curry Leaves – 1 few (chopped)
Salt to taste
Oil – 2 tbsp
Coriander to garnish

Directions
Heat oil in a shallow pan and fry ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder.

Add potatoes, fry for a minute and then add curry leaves and onions and stir fry until they are soft. Mix in red chilli powder and salt. Note: you can exclude potato in this recipe. But I’ve liked this better with potatoes.

Pour a little water to avoid the mixture to burn. With the spoon make some space in between the mixture for the eggs.

Break the eggs one at a time into the spaces in the pan. Cover and cook on low for about 5 mins or until the eggs are cooked through.

Crush the eggs slightly while mixing with the onions to incorporate well. Adjust with salt n pepper if desired. Top it up with coriander and green chillies.

Serve with parathas or plain rice.
