Eggs Bhurji

My Dearest Komal, Anjli and Amar,

Another one of Sapnamasi’s recipes. Just up your sleeve Amar. Quick, easy and delicious. Also used to be a favourite of Neshmama’s many moons ago. Seeing all his food adventures during this Covid-19 era, perhaps he makes a mean ‘Egg Bhurji’ too. We satisfied Niki’s desires last time with the Chole recipe, this time it is Rhea’s turn. Egg Bhurji is her favourite. I have estimated this recipe to serve 4 people for a main meal.
