Tofu Bhurji Or Curried Scrambled Tofu

​Here comes another variation curried scrambled eggs, if you so want to avoid eggs.

Prepare a wonderful tofu scrambled curry to have a fulfilling and energizing breakfast or lunch.

What's even great is you can prepare this beforehand!

So, no more excuses to miss breakfast because you are late!


  • ​1 Block of Extra Firm Tofu: Quick chop in small Cubes with a large knife, in Cubes. (Grating in food processor doesn't quite work with Tofu)
  • ​Onion, chopped - 2 cup
  • ​Bell Pepper chopped - 1 cup (use green/yellow pepper or any other sweet pepper you can find)
  • ​Other choice of veggies from the approved vegetable list - 1/2 cup (I used a handful of fresh green peas and spring onions today)
  • ​Tomato, chopped - 1 cup
  • ​Cilantro or Coriander, chopped - 1/2 cup for garnish
  • ​2-3 Green chilli, chopped long and thin (optional if you don't like spicy, skip this)
  • Tempering Spices | Pinch of Asafoetida, Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp, Mustard Seeds: 1/2 tsp, Nigella Seeds 1 tsp
  • ​Salt - to taste
  • ​Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  • ​Black pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
  • ​Cayenne pepper or red pepper powder- 1 tsp (or to taste if you don't like the hot n spicy)
  • ​Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • ​Olive Oil (or alternate Ghee or Coconut Oil) - 1 tbsp


  • 1
    ​Heat Olive oil over medium-high heat in your largest non-stick pan.
  • 2
    ​Once the oil is warmed up add the tempering spices, immediately followed by onion green peas, green chilies, and tomatoes (or other choice of veggies).
  • 3
    ​Fry until onions are browned and add salt, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper and coriander powder.
  • 4
    ​Mix well and add tofu cubes and stir and cook for about 3-5 minutes while stirring and letting the mixture cook well.
  • 5
    ​Pictured above, I ran out of spring onions and cilantro. But don't forget to garnish!

    ​Another Pro tip for eating this is, right before serving squeeze in some lemon juice and chaat masala for an additional zing. Serve with your low carb Rotis on the side or make a quick Tofu Roti Roll for a quick breakfast.
