Akoori – Parsi Egg Bhurji

It’s a Sunday Morning! And our tummies are hungry to much some eggs. Bored of eating the regular boiled egg sandwich or the omelet or egg scramble, I decided to toss up egg in a different manner today.

Parsi Egg Bhurji or the “Akoori” as famously known in all Irani restaurants in the city of Mumbai, will surely feed you well and give you the exact feeling of a lazy relaxed holiday.

This Recipe Serves 4

Ingredients :

  • 4-5 Eggs
  • 2-3 Big Chopped Onions
  • 2-3 Big Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 Big Green Chillies Cut
  • Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1/4 litre milk
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1tsp chilli powder
  • Chopped Coriander leaves
  • Salt to Taste
  • 2-3 tblsp cooking oil/ghee/butter

Preparation :

Time to Prepare : 5 minutes

Time to Cook : 10 minutes

  • Heat the pan and add oil to it. If you would like it a bit rich and heavy, you may add ghee or butter in similar proportions.
  • Now Add chopped onions and green chillies to the oil
  • Sortè for 1-2 minutes on medium flame and add ginger garlic paste to it
  • After mixing well for a couple of minutes add chopped tomatoes to the pan

  • Cook well for 2 minutes and then add 1/4 litre milk to the pan                                                [be careful while pouring the milk as it might spill on you from the hot pan]
  • Let it cook for a couple of minutes and when it starts simmering, lower the flame
  • Beat all eggs with a fork in a bowl and add the batter to the pan
  • Once the eggs are added, start mixing them well with a spatula until they mix with the full masala and cook well

Do serve it HOT right away with 2 slices of toast butter
