Capsicum Egg Bhurji/ Capsicum Egg Podimas – Indian Version of Scrambled Egg

I really do not know if this is a mere coincidence or something. My last post was also an egg based one(Almond Omelette Gravy) and this one too 🙂 So much is my love for eggs. When you can make something super simple in a jiffy, why would you think of making something elaborate and difficult. Whenever I feel bored or tired, this is the one that I resort to. Yes, the super simple and easy Egg Bhurji/Egg Podimas. This is an Indian version of the so called scrambled eggs. You can make it plain with just onions but I had capsicums. So, included those too.

I can go on and on about the nutritional benefits of Capsicum/Eggs. They are absolutely healthy in short. So, the next time when you are running out of time, but want to have something tasty, go for this. I am sure most of them would be familiar with this recipe but I would also want beginners to start with something as easy as this and hence this post. The best thing about this recipe was my kid loved it and what else would provide so much happiness to a mother 🙂 🙂 There might be numerous versions of preparing this. I have used Sambar powder in this recipe. Feel free to replace with any other masala and let me know how it tasted.
