New mom and working mother/woman leads fast pace of life today. Choosing nutritious foods over junk food is a big challenge these days. I always admired my daughter in law for  being such a wonderful mother, who very often prepare “Egg Bhurji/Scrambled eggs(Akuri/Akoori) Pav/Laadi Pav” and similar homemade food for my grand daughter and family  and successfully avoids junk food.

On my birthday, she prepared this satisfying breakfast in a matter of minutes. Sizzling hot buttered laadi pav(a type of soft and spongy bread with thin brown but defined crust). Served with delicious egg bhurji. 

This dish originated from city of Bharuch in Gujarat, hence the name. It is very popular and favourite street food in western part of India, especially in Mumbai. Mumbaikar add loads of butter and green chilli to prepare this dish, in south India they use curry leaves and in north India they use chat masala. Nowadays everywhere roadside cart(Thelawala) use cheese too.

Healthy, delectable Egg Bhurji is basically the Indian version of scramble eggs; which is high in protein and above all very kids friendly too.
