Soya-Egg Bhurji

Ok, let's have some soya power again,and this time with egg bhurji!!Egg bhurji is a sort of scrambled eggs with vegetables and spices, so you can say it is an Indian version of scrambled eggs. Now, how the idea of adding soya granules to the egg bhurji came into my mind. Well, one day we were about to have breakfast when some guests came over and to my worry, those were the last eggs I had cooked. No more eggs means I had to cook something else for them and I was feeling very lazy that morning. And then, I saw "the rescue" pack- soya granules and some vegetables. *TADDA* problem fixed!!! Soya is a protien power food and so are eggs. Everyone enjoyed the protien combo a lot that from then on, I never cook bhurji without soya granules(which look almost as same as bhurji). The recipe is simple but I wanted to share it with you all! You can add any vegetable of you choice. So try it someday and cook the natural way!! Hope you like it!

You need
5 eggs
1/2 cup soya granules
3 onions (chopped)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
1/2 cup broccoli (chopped)
1/2 cup peas
3 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon garam masala (optional)
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon oil
salt and pepper to taste
coriander leaves (for garnishing)

1. Whisk eggs gently in a bowl and keep aside.

2.Boil soya granules in salted water for 3 minutes. Drain the water. Squeeze out the excess water, when cooled. Set aside.

3. Dry roast cumin seeds and crush them coarsely when cooled. Keep aside.

4. In another vessel, boil broccoli and peas in salted water for 5 minutes. Drain the water.

5. In a pan, heat oil, fry onions till translucent. Add garlic, peas, tomatoes and broccoli. Cook for few minutes. Season with garam masala, salt and pepper.

6. Now add soya granules and eggs. Stir continuously till eggs are done.

7. Lastly add cumin seeds and lemon juice. Mix well.

5. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve with bread, roti or prantha!!
