Tofu Scramble (Bhurji)


Tofu scramble or in India we call it “Tofu Bhurji” which means scramble, is a great alternative to the egg scramble. Tomatoes, green onion, and cilantro makes this protein-packed tofu scramble a tasty breakfast. What is special about this recipe is that I add black salt instead of regular salt and that is what gives the tofu that egg aroma. With this recipe your family won’t even miss the eggs!


4 green onions, chopped (about ½ cup)

1 clove garlic, minced (about 1 tsp.)

½ inch ginger root grated

1 tbsp. olive oil

½ tsp of cumin seeds

¼ tsp. ground turmeric

1 green chili thinly sliced

1 large tomato finely diced

1 14-oz. pkg. medium tofu, drained and crumbled

1 tsp black salt

2 Tbsp chopped cilantro



1 Heat large non-stick skillet over medium heat adds olive oil. Add the cumin seeds and let it sizzle for a minute.

2 Add the onions and cook 7 minutes, or until just tender. Stir in ginger, garlic, green chilies, cumin, turmeric, and tomatoes and cook 3 minutes more.
