Egg Bhurji

Egg Bhurji

This is a fun twist on a classic Indian breakfast, replacing scrambled eggs with hard boiled eggs.

While grabbing a post workout meal in India a few years back, we were lucky enough to stumble upon this dish. Needless to say, we devoured it and knew we had to recreate it once we were back home. Since then, egg bhurji has become a weekend brunch staple and a hit amongst our friends!
