Anda Aloo Bhurji or Potato and Egg stir fry

When I was a child, egg was a life savior when fish or meat weren’t available. If I wanted something not so veggie, mom would cook this “Anda aloo Bhurji” in a jiffy and serve it with hot chapatis or dal rice. The best thing about this dish is the simplicity, faint flavors of cumin, caramelized onion and my love for Potatoes.
