Cabbage Egg Bhurji

Cabbage bhurji is the last recipe under the theme bhurji recipes, for the first week of this month’s blogging marathon # 62. This is an interesting recipe and I was skeptical when saw it online. To my surprise, cabbage blended well into the bhurji. To be on the safe side, I added four eggs instead of 3.

I have seen recipes where cabbage is used as a substitute for onion and really wanted to try cabbage bhurji, though I was skeptical about the taste. This is a nice way to sneak in cabbage into food for picky eaters. There are many recipes online and I made the bhurji to my liking. This is a standard egg bhurji recipe with an addition of grated cabbage. Once the cabbage is cooked, eggs are added and scrambled.
