#CookandChomp Indian style egg bhurji

In my tryst with perfecting the art of scrambled eggs, I realised I should share the one I have been cooking all along. This is the Indian version of scrambled eggs – with vegetables, masalas and unlike the French ones, fully cooked. Paired with pav, toasted bread, or even parantha, anda bhurji works great for breakfast, brunch or even dinner.
