Indian style scrambled eggs (boorji)

This is another well-loved breakfast dish in my household. Spicy scrambled eggs eaten with toast and ketchup! Once you try it you’ll never look back.

PREP TIME 15 minutes

COOK TIME 30 minutes



  • 2 large red potatoes, diced
  • 2 medium onions finely chopped
  • 4 tomatoes finely chopped

4 Green chillies finely chopped

1 cup coriander chopped

  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • Half a tsp tumeric
  • 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
  • 8 eggs, beaten


Heat the butter or ghee in a large frying pan (one with a lid preferably), and add the cumin seeds. Let them splutter for a few seconds before adding the onions, potatoes and green chilli. Sprinkle in some salt, cover and cook until the potatoes are nice and soft.

Add the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.

Add the ginger and garlic paste and cook again for about 10 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and sizzle away for a few minutes before pouring in the beaten eggs.

Stir the eggs and cook on a gentle heat until they are set but still soft.

Before serving sprinkle in the coriander and garam masala.
