There are so many ways an egg bhurji can be made anywhere from as simple as just scrambling an egg in fried onions. Adding chili powder and not even using ginger garlic paste. Since it is one of the foods that is regularly or often made at home, i got a chance to try many variations of making anda bhurji. I had a readers request for a recipe that can yield bhurji to accompany pav and this one pairs well with pav, bread, plain rice or even roti/ chapathi.

to make egg bhurji recipe, garam masala or pav bhaji masala is used to remove the raw smell of eggs. If you don’t like to use garam masala often or you like the flavor of eggs, you can skip ginger garlic paste and garam masala. I always had a dislike to use tomato for a bhurji, but finally got it right this way.
