Masala Egg Bhurji / Spicy Scrambled Eggs

Isn’t it kind of boring to cook the same recipe again and again...!!! Perhaps...egg bhurji or scrambles egg is one such recipe that I cook more than often, and it comes right after my husband’s beloved Sorshe Maach. Scrambled egg is such an easy recipe that most of the nights it becomes my diner with some chapatti. And yes...I make scrambled eggs many times for my husband’s lunchbox. It’s downright quick and quite filling.

So rather than cooking the same old recipe...I just wanted to spice it up a little and ended up adding the tomato paste and the masalas. Ready-made tandoori masalas are just life saviours...if you ask me. They can lift up any boring meal to a chatpata one. And even this one was no exception!!
