Father's Day Breakfast ~ Eggs Bhurji

First I'd like to wish my husband a Happy Father's day!  You are
are a wonderful husband and an amazing Dad!  Thank you for 
all you do for us.  We love you very much.....  I'd also like to 
send out a Happy Father's Day shout out to my Dad who lives 
in Florida.  I wish I could have made you breakfast as well!

I was wanting to make Jim something different and very 
flavorful on his special day.  Eggs Bhurji which are basically 
Indian scrambled eggs was the first thing that came to mind.  
They are quite similar to regular scrambled eggs the only 
difference is the addition of onions, spices, chilies, garlic and 
ginger which make them very fragrant and delicious.  There is 
a little prep work involved.  Luckily, I thought aheadand did my 
chopping the night before so it came together really fast in the 

Eggs Bhurji

(printable copy)

3 eggs, well beaten
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 medium red onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. ginger, grated
1/2  jalapeno pepper, minced
1 tomato or 1 roasted red pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp. coriander powder
1/4 tsp. garam masala powder
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/8 tsp. turmeric
red chili powder, to taste
salt, to taste

Heat a skillet over med-high heat and add oil, turmeric and 
onions.  Saute for 2-3 minutes.Add garlic, ginger and jalapeno 
pepper.  Saute for a minute and add red pepper (or tomato).
Cook for a couple of minutes and add cilantro and powders.  
Stir well to combine and add the eggs.  Stir constantly until 
done to your liking. 

This mixture is also fantastic to serve inside a flour tortilla with 
some cheese and salsa for a new Indian spin on a breakfast 
burrito.   It's probably my favorite way to serve them!  In fact, 
I made extra just so we could have Egg Bhurji burritos tomorrow 
morning!  No hum drum Monday for us!  


  1. Yum! My dadda came over for dinner and I made him Mexican Lasagna. :D

  2. I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:

  3. Everything goes well in a scramble and this looks delicious - nice salute to your hubby.
