Chatpata Anda Bhurji (Spicy Scrambled Eggs)


Eggs are great for breakfast! We Indians love our Anda Bhurji hot & spicy. Our scrambled eggs have to be spicier & intensely flavored with garam masala, chaat masala & not to forget our fiery red chilli powder. Above all we also like it to have the right amount of zing & tang so tomatoes play an important role in our food & its a must in this fresh & inviting Anda Bhurji. It can be relished whenever you feel like it but it tastes great on a rainy day or when it is really very cold & you long for some quick comfort food … Try this delicious spicy scrambled eggs for breakfast along with some warm buttered toast, which will definitely give a great head start to your day!
