Masala Cheese Bhurji | Spicy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs


Be it Koshy’s in Bangalore or Kyani & Co. in Bombay, the masala cheese omelette that these old school folks make is simply amazing. It’s just eggs, chillies and cheese. But the comfort it gives is what makes it so good. Add the nostalgia factor and you have a winner. The cheese slice sitting right in the centre of the omelette with little specks of green chilly scattered around..sigh. I wanted to replicate it, but instead turned it into masala cheese bhurji. Works brilliantly and made effortlessly.
