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.
- Eggs 2 nos.
- Pav or Indian buns 4
- Green chilies 2
