Aalu Bhurji (Potatoes Scrambled?) Dont go by the name, just TRY it !

Hey Friends ! I'm back again after a nice long vacation. I learnt a few new tricks this season and will share them along the way... for now lets talk about this dish -

This was a pure accident. Being jet-lagged is a horrible thing.. as I woke up one morning... pretty early... I thought of preparing breakfast instead of getting bored through my head. I began my preps for a real spicy 'Anda Bhurji' which is the Indian version of the scrambled egg.. made with onions and tomatoes and lots of spices!  Now when I reached for the eggs, I realized there weren't any. In all my huff and puff I decided to improvise and  use potatoes instead.. so here goes.. Hope you'll like it !!


Onion - 1 medium, fine chopped
Red Bell-pepper - 1/2 medium, fine chopped
Tomato - 1 medium, fine chopped
Ginger - 1/2 inch cube, minced
Green Chilli - 1 small, chopped
Potato - 2 medium, fine chopped
Fresh Coriander - small bunch, chopped
Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste


SERVING: Serves 2


1. Pour oil in a pan, heat it. Keep on high heat.
2. Add onions and fry for 1 min.
3. Add the bell peppers, fry till Onion and the Peppers are lightly browned.
4. Reduce heat to a little less than medium. Add the tomatoes, fry till oil separates.
5. Add the potatoes, mix in. Cook till the potatoes are done.
6. Add all the masalas, mix in. Cook till the flavors mingle.

7. Garnish with fresh coriander.
8. Serve with hot toast and chutneys. (Ketchup would work just as well)

Enjoy !!

TIP: Don't cover the potatoes to cook or they will become sticky.
