Spicy-Masala-Indian-Scrambled-EggWho’s ready for the weekend !!! I know I’m and this one is going to be extra special as we are celebrating Holi – Indian Festival of Color. And just before we get into that festive mode, I wanted to share these ‘Quick and Spicy Masala Indian Scrambled Egg’ recipe with you’ll which are also known an ‘Masala Anda Bhurji’ in India (Anda means Egg & Bhurji means Scramble). It’s something which is hands down our favorite go to breakfast over weekends or special days (when you want to cook slightly different). One of the thing that gets me everytime about this recipe is the flavors – the creaminess from the eggs + the kick from the masala just blend perfectly together.

Masala-Indian-Scrambled-EggThe other thing that I love about this recipe is that it’s so easy to make. You don’t need any special pots or pans or fancy gadgets, nor any special spices. Just make the basic ‘masala mix’ (detailed further), add the curry powder, eggs and you’re almost done. Just mix, stir and the dish is ready in 10 minutes (for 4 people). Now, for the masala mix, all you need is onion, tomato, garlic and ginger – that’s it. So simple yet so powerful in every bite. Indian-anda-bhurji-recipeNow, there’s just one more addition that I’ve done and that is added some bits of boiled potato (D’s Favorite) but you can absolutely use or omit that as per your choice. Whenever I make them, their one from request from hubby and that is for Indian Fried Flatbread called ‘Poori’ (which I’ll share the recipe soon) – give him that and he’s in a complete weekend bliss mode 😉  Infact, that’s exactly how I remember it’s served in many Indian homes and you can say that this is one of our comfortfood recipes. So, that’s it for this weekend and I hope you did see my special Holi Indian Dessert Post where I’m talking all things colorful and delicious to make on Holi and surprise your loved ones.
