Egg Bhurji Pav – Mumbai style

When I was in Bombay (I know it is Mumbai now but I still like to call it Bombay ;)) Egg Bhruji was my favorite street food. Once in a week I would go to my regular eating joint to relish the spicy egg bhurji served with butter coated pav ( Indian buns or bread) with a golden glaze on top!

I tried to recreate the dish in my kitchen many times but I still could not get the same taste, I so relished in Bombay. Nevertheless, whenever I crave for egg bhurji, I make it and remember my good old days.

Sharing the recipe below.

Cheese Carrozza

When it comes to quick cooking, I prefer something like Cheese Carrozza. It is simple but yet very delicious dish. The reason is quite obvious, it has CHEESE! 😉

So without further ado, let’s learn how to make this dish.
