Egg Bhurji as I have shared before is the Indian style of making scrambled eggs. It is made with eggs only. At times different vegetables are included with it. It not only makes it more nutitious but also makes eating the vegetable an enjoyable experience. I make this often at home as my daughter would eat the vegetable without much fuss. I have already shared varieties of bhurji like asparagus bhurji and cauliflower bhuji. This time I want to share Brocooli Bhurji.
I know many of my friends looking for ways to make broccoli after knowing about its health benefits. This is one interesting way of making broccoli for those who eat eggs. It goes well with chapathi, rice and even inside a sandwich. Be sure to try it out.
