Ande-Simla Mirchi Bhurji – Tastefully Simple:)

Scrambled Eggs with Bell Peppers:

Other Names: Scrambled Eggs with Capsicum. Kudaimilagai -Muttai Podimass.

People often misjudge me, that I am an active girl! Many keep handing down their responsibilities to me at work front and at home!! Come on, man…I am super lazy at times!! Well, I am actually smart enough to trick people’ to think that I am energetic and active, hehe:) So, just like anybody else, I too have some good and bad days! Actually some worst days…where I find myself, hard to drag to do anything! Feel like breaking all the bonds, commitments and abscond away to Himalayas:( You know what, sometimes…I could spend an entire day reading journals and listening to music, endlessly…without moving a finger:) Those are the days, I don’t even bother to fix a meal or step out for dinner! I would just console and comfort myself with leftovers or abandoned box of cookies like a loser:(

Anyhooo, as soon as I get enough motivation through books, blogs or friends…I would realize that it is not an excuse to feed myself with junk! Then, I would be don with fresh apron, walk to the kitchen, try to swap few ingredients and fix something exciting:) So, if you are like me, wondering what to fix for breakfast-lunch-dinner in less than 2 minutes. It is always easy to make scrambled eggs using only the staples from your pantry.


Eggs 4
Bell peppers/Capsicum 1-2 chopped
Green chilies 3 chopped
Onion 1 large chopped
Ginger 1″ grated
Turmeric 1 pinch
Pepper powder 1 teaspoon
Oil few spoons
Mustard seeds few
Chana-urad dal 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves few.


In a wide wok, heat oil and add the tempering spices. Followed by chilies, ginger, onions and bell peppers. Fry real good till fragrant.

Add enough salt, turmeric and pepper powder.

Then add the eggs as well and scramble them over high heat.

Serve warm as a breakfast, or as a side dish to your lunch or dinner.
