  • Author: Vasanti
  • Yield: 3 servings 1x


Spice up your breakfast or brunch with Indian-style spicy masala scrambled eggs on toasted sliced bread with salty, buttery cheese.



For the Anda Bhurji/Egg Scramble

  • 2 tbsp ghee/butter/neutral cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp asafetida
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • salt, as needed
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste (or 1 medium garlic clove + 1/2 inch ginger, grated)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp Everest Egg Curry Masala (see FAQs & Notes + Variations)
  • 1 medium tomato, diced
  • 6 large eggs (see Variations)
  • 45 sprigs of cilantro/coriander leaves, chopped, for garnishing

For the Bruschetta

  • 6 slices of sourdough or any other bread of choice, toasted
  • 2 medium green onion, thinly sliced, for topping
  • Grated Indian Amul or any other shredded cheese of choice, for topping, as needed


  • In a nonstick skillet heat ghee/butter/oil over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and asafetida. When the cumin sizzles and the asafetida froths, add in the diced onion. Sprinkle some salt to help the onion soften and sweat.
  • Sauté the onion for 4-5 minutes till it turned light brown and then add the ginger-garlic paste. Stir and continue to sauté for a couple more minutes.
  • Stir in the turmeric and the Everest Egg Curry Masala and sauté for 30 seconds to let the spices bloom.
  • Stir in the diced tomato and combine well.
  • Continue sautéing, stirring frequently, for about 2-3 mins till most of the moisture evaporates.
  • Turn the heat down to low. Crack 6 eggs directly in to the spiced onion-tomato mixture.
  • Whisk with the cooking spoon while combining the eggs with the onion-tomato mixture.
  • Cook the eggs stirring continuously over low heat. 
  • Keep scraping the sides and the bottom of the pan as the eggs cook.
  • Turn the heat off once the eggs firm up and have cooked but are still soft and velvety in texture.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro/ coriander leaves and green onion, if using.
  • Spoon the prepared bhurji over toasted slices of whole wheat bread and sprinkle with sliced green onion and grated cheese.
