Want to make a quick, spicy scrambled eggs for breakfast? This recipe for egg bhurjee comes from one of the top Indian restaurants in London, and it goes great with naan or a tortilla wrap and all the ingredients are very easy to find.


2 tbsp Vegetable oil
2 medium Onions
2 Green chillies
1 inch piece Ginger
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
3/4 tsp Chilli powder
2 Tomatoes
4 Eggs
110 ml Milk (1/4 cup)
to taste Salt
1/2 Bunch coriander (cilantro) leaves

Preparation process

  • Break the eggs and add them into a mixing bowl.
  • Add 1/4 of a cup of milk, and mix them together with a whisk
  • Cut the ends of the onion, peel off the skin, cut it in half, then chop into fine pieces
  • Chop the chilies (you may want to dip your fingers in oil first to avoid being stung by the chili juice)
  • Chop the tomatoes and ginger into fine pieces
  • Chop up half a bunch of coriander.
  • Heat two tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large non-stick pan, over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onion and chilies to the pan, and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the ginger, along with 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and 3/4 teaspoon of chili powder. Fry for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and stir everything together over a medium heat until the tomatoes have turned to pulp. You might need to add a little water along the way, to make this happen. Stir and cover, and let simmer for 10 minutes
  • After the 10 minutes have elapsed, add the egg and milk mixture. Keep stirring until the egg is cooked and solid.
    Stir in the chopped coriander leaves and serve.
