Spinach and Egg Stir Fry / Spinach Egg Bhurji

Spinach has always been my favorite. Well, it is such a nutritious leafy vegetable, so what is wrong in falling in love with it. I usually store it in the freezer having cleaned, chopped and sealed in a ziploc bag. So that I can use it to make this stir fry without wasting too much time.

Whenever, we get back from a trip longing to eat homely food, I usually end up making this stir fry. It is so hassle free having those stocked up spinach handy and can be prepared in just minutes.

This stir fry is our family favorite. Try it if you have not already had these and you too would love it.

  1. 2 bunches of spinach, chopped 
  2. 4 tbsp of finely chopped onions
  3. 1 green chilly, slit
  4. 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
  5. 2 tbsp of oil
  6. 2 large eggs, beaten
  7. Salt to taste
  • In a skillet, add the oil. Once hot, add the turmeric powder, chopped onions and green chilly. Sprinkle some salt and saute it till the onion turns tender.
  • Now add the chopped spinach to it. Cover it and let it cook. 
  • Once it is half cooked, add the eggs and mix it. Keep stirring it occasionally so that the eggs don't stick to the bottom of the skillet. 
  • Remove it from the heat once the egg is cooked completely.
  • Serve it with rice or chapathi.
  1. Spinach releases water once it starts cooking. If you find too much water while the spinach is cooking, let it get evaporated before you add in the eggs.
