You are watching: Anda Bhurji – Spicy Egg Brunch


Huevos rancheros, shakshuka and options All excellent egg and chili dishes. But this Indian version of scrambled eggs is a league of its own. It’s called Anda Bhurji and is likely to be at the top of your favorites list.

Anda Bhurji Butter Naan Bread

Think how you like your ‘standard’ scrambled eggs, which can be beaten with a little milk, salt and pepper, then lightly seasoned with a little butter. Now imagine mixing eggs with coconut milk and stirring them together with a mixture of sautéed peppers, onions, garlic, cumin, turmeric, and some lime juice. um!

Garnish those eggs with sliced ​​cilantro and thinly sliced ​​green onions, and you’ll take your egg brunch to the next level.

Don’t make a fire with hot peppers.

Anda Bhurji is definitely the best star when you’re pretty bold with hot peppers. In this case, cayenne pepper. Here’s why. The richness of the egg and coconut milk helps handle the sudden heat before losing control of the chili’s flavor.

The whole heat of the chili is tempered by the buttered bread served with the egg. Naan bread would be my first choice. But warm flatbread Anything with good butter goes well with it.

The rich flavor of the buttery bread adds another layer of foil to the fire of the chili. But it does not conflict with the taste of spicy eggs. For me sourdough toast or wholemeal bread are not important delicacies.

And a garnish of coriander and green onions? Now you can feel the smell, taste and appearance of coriander. The onion slices look good too, but – much more importantly – they add a little crunch to the egg and add a bit of onion spiciness.
