Also known as Anda Bhurji, Egg Bhurji is a spicy and flavourful Indian style scrambled eggs recipe that is quite famous in the streets of Northern and Western India. It is easy to make, healthy, and tastes delicious.

Egg Bhurji is a satisfying combination of scrambled eggs and spicy onion which you can have during any time of the day. This is loved for breakfast in India, as it is not only because of its heavenly taste but also because it is super easy to make. Not only breakfast, but you can also have it for any meal of the day. It is very similar to Akuri, a Paris breakfast dish but Akuri is runnier as compared to Bhurji.

This dish is especially loved by the ones who are going out for work on a regular basis or the ones who want to make something quick, healthy, and delicious for their breakfast or for their kid’s lunch box.


Homemade Egg Bhurji Versus Street Style Egg Bhurji

The difference between the Street Style and the Homemade Version of Egg Bhurji is of the special spice powder that the street vendors add while preparing this delectable dish which is the Pav Bhaji Masala. These two teaspoons of Pav Bhaji Masala add wonders to the dish by taking its taste to the top-notch level.


Variations In Egg Bhurji:

  • If you want the street style taste, use Pav Bhaji Masala in the Bhurji.
  • Do not miss the butter, it gives it a delicious taste.
  • Do not overcook the eggs. Cook till they are just cooked, as they will continue cooking even after you switch off the gas.
  • For more fluffy eggs, add in a little milk while whisking the eggs.
  • You can add in veggies such as Mushrooms, Green Onions, Tomatoes, Bell Pepper etc for extra nutrition and to make it wholesome.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 6 eggs, beaten well,

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped,

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds,

  • 1 large green chilli, finely chopped,

  • 1 tsp turmeric powder,

  • 4 tsp oil or butter,

  • Salt as per taste,

  • Green coriander, finely chopped,


  • Heat the oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds. As it splutters, add the green chilli and onions. Stir fry until golden brown.
  • Add salt as per taste and turmeric powder and mix well.
  • Pour the beaten eggs over the onions and mix well. 
  • Leave it as is for 2-3 mins without mixing. Then start mixing and scramble the eggs.
  • Mix well and allow the eggs to cook through. You will see the water evaporating and the color changing.
  • The colour of the eggs will turn golden brown and slightly crispy.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot.

Serving Suggestions:

  • It goes really well with some hot Roti, Tawa Paratha, or even Lachha Paratha. You can also serve it with a Bread Toast for breakfast with a hot cup of Masala Chai or Filter Coffee. 
  • But, if you wish to present it in Street Style, then serve it with either a few slices of bread or with some soft and crispy Laddi Pav.
  • You can also make a Bhurji Sandwich, by stuffing this spicy Bhurji in between two bread along with a slice of cheese and then toasting it or make a kathi roll along with spicy green chutney and some onion slices.


  1. Tempting treat, really looks delicious, my fav one..

  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.
