Egg bhurji Andhra Egg Porutu

egg porutu

Today iam going to share my style of making Egg Bhurji Andhra Egg Porutu(scrambled egg recipe). The regular bhurji that is usually made lacks veggies in them and my little kiddo cannot eat his meal without the sight of veggies in his plate. Instead of making a different veggie for him, I make my bhurji with capsicums and it tastes great with a good aroma. If you are like me who loves to add veggies in every dish that is made, then do try this and you will love it and will surely say this is the best egg bhurji that you ever made. Apart from the spicy andhra egg curry and Egg Roast Recipe, today’s egg bhurji is one of the most simplest to make on a busy day.

There are many styles of making andhra Egg porutu anywhere from as simple as just scrambling an egg in fried onions and just add chili powder and not even using ginger garlic paste. We at home are not used to making egg bhurji without a garam masala since it has the smell of egg.  If you are some one who dont like to use garam masala often or you like the flavor of eggs, you could skip ginger garlic paste and garam masala. The pictures you see above and below are 2 different versions of  the bhurji  both with different set of ingredients that i use which i have mentioned below
