South Indian egg bhurji recipe

A few weeks ago, I shared my chorizo and egg bhurji recipe. I love a good bhurji; you can tweak these Indian spiced scrambled eggs in so many different ways, making for some very yummy and varied brunches. This is my husband's South Indian Egg Bhurji recipe. 


  1. Eggs - 4
  2. Onion - 1 medium
  3. Curry leaves - 1 sprig (10-12 leaves)
  4. Mustard seeds - 1.5 tsp heaped
  5. Urad dal - 1 tsp
  6. Red chillies - 2
  7. Olive oil
  8. Salt
  9. Pepper


  1. Peel and finely dice the onion
  2. Beat the eggs with a fork
  3. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a saucepan on medium
  4. When hot, add mustard seeds
  5. When the seeds start to crackle, add the urad dal and red chillies and saute till the dal starts turning brown
  6. Add the curry leaves and saute for 30 seconds
  7. Stir the diced onion into the egg mixture
  8. Add salt and pepper
  9. Stir and pour into the pan
  10. Using a back and forth and side to side motion, scramble the eggs
  11. All done!


  1. These South Indian style scrambled eggs taste great with toast, or rolled in a paratha or chapatti
