Egg Bhurji

I always feel that cooking and clicking is the easiest part of blogging.
Its writing the recipe and introduction that’s time consuming. I always get stuck when writing intros. Once you get into the flow, you will be fine. But it’s getting into the flow that’s problematic.

The difficulty multiplies with the medium which you are using. I personally find it extremely difficult to get a post published from the phone. I am talking about posts with all the pictures and the recipe written in already. All that’s left is writing the introduction and posting it. IPad comes in a close second place after the phone.

I am comfortable with laptops. There is a psychological security there. May be its just the bigger screen that makes it easier! Who knows!!?

In case you are looking for a point to all that blabbing, there is actually none. But you can check out the recipe here, which has a lot of good points to make – quick and easy, tasty and pairs well with so many dishes. The Indian style scrambled eggs – anda bhurji. This is the first of the three day series under the theme bhurji recipes for this week’s Blogging marathon. Check out this page for more recipes from other participating bloggers.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds (optional)
  • 1 green chili, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1″ ginger piece, peeled and minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 1/2 small tomato, chopped fine (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • salt and pepper

Method:

  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add 1 teaspoon mustard seeds.
  2. Once it splutters, add one chopped green chilli and 1″ piece of finely chopped ginger. Follow it up with one small chopped onion.
  3. Cook the onions till they are pink. Add half of a small tomato, chopped fine.
  4. Let it cook until the tomatoes soften a bit. Add the turmeric powder, salt and pepper. Mix well and cook.
  5. In a bowl, whisk three large eggs with some milk to moisten it. I used about a tablespoon of milk. This step is optional, you can add the eggs directly into the pan as well.
  6. Add the eggs to the pan and keep stirring it bringing it to the center of the pan, until the eggs are cooked completely.
  7. Serve as a side dish to rice or as a sandwich filling.

    This is our family favorite dish.
    Whisking in the eggs before adding to the pan might be the key to getting that perfect egg bhurji texture. Lazy me, cracks the eggs straight into the pan. Will take a minute and whisk them before adding next time :-)

    Totally agree with you that writing part becomes the most difficult sometimes. Especially the person like me who is otherwise also very reserved and don’t talk much. Egg bhurji is really such a dish that comes to your rescue if you are short of time or there are no veggies in the kitchen.

    Even I am comfortable drafting and scheduling my posts from laptop. However, off late I am making rough drafts on my mobile in Google docs. Guess when I do that? During my walking to keep up with my daily 10k step count. I do most of the rough draft on mobile, copy paste it to my blog post and make the final edits on my laptop.
    Bhurji looks great!
