Egg Bhurji | Scrambled Eggs with Onions and Tomatoes

When we were kids my dad makes this often for chapathis and we loved it. But he usually skipped the tomatoes. When I got married and the first time my MIL made this dish, it was so different to me but I liked the taste. The tanginess of the tomatoes was so pleasing and took the entire dish to the next level. When my MIL told that this was my huss's favorite, I didn't have another option but to adapt this.

~*What U Need*~
Large eggs - 2
Finely chopped Onion - 1 cup

Finely chopped Tomato - 1/2 cup

Curry leaves - 1 sprig

Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

Red chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp

Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp

Oil - 2 tablespoons

Salt - to taste

How I Made it:

Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Add the curry leaves and allow to splutter. Now add the onions and saute till glassy / transparent. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute till done. Add the tomatoes and saute till oil starts oozing out. Add the turmeric powder and chilli powder and fry. Add salt and combine well. Break open the egg and add it to the mixture. Fry till the egg mixes well with the onions and becomes scrambled. Do a taste check and turn of the flame.

Serve hot with Pooris / chapathis.
