Anda di Purjee (Bhurji)

Simple and delicious spiced Indian eggs cooked with fried vegetables. Perfect for breakfast!

Hari says

This is a hearty, healthy breakfast which is a bit more exciting then plain old scrambled eggs. Very quick to knock up and one that I'd always make for my dad, so it's very special to me. I like mine with mushrooms, spring onions, garam masala, and coriander but my husband likes his with tomatoes and chilli, so take your pick. Just have fun and use whatever you have in the fridge to wake up your tastebuds as well as you body and soul. Oh, and I've been told this makes an amazing hangover cure too... but I wouldn't know anything about that...

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 8 large free range eggs
  • 3 spring onions, sliced including green bits
  • 3 mushrooms, diced
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 or 2 chillis chopped
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Handful of fresh coriander, chopped


  1. Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk.
  2. Heat butter in a frying pan.
  3. Add the sliced onions and fry to soften.
  4. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes (and other veg) and fry for a few minutes to cook through.
  5. Add the garam masala, chopped chilli, chilli powder, salt and stir for a second then add eggs and stir to scramble.
  6. Remove from heat and add coriander.

    Love your recipes...Just a correction to Anda di Purjee - It is called Bhurji and not Purjee.

      Hi Sameer So glad you like the recipes and thanks so much for your feedback. We have always called it Purjee, I think it's a regional thing. I know it's called Bhurji by most but with most words that pronounce as Bh we tend to say P. Love the differences and im thrilled you are enjoying the website. Thanks Hari
