King of Eggs

A story about a man in Udaipur (northwestern India) who runs a very successful food stall that serves only egg dishes. He calls himself the king of eggs … well, someday, he says.

“Udaipur’s Emperor of Eggs” (from Roads & Kingdoms)

It doesn’t look much like Mr. Valecha’s most popular dish, but here’s an English recipe for a dish with the same name, if you’d like to try it: Egg Bhurji

Some of those ingredients may be hard to find in your neighbourhood, though. I browsed some Japanese recipes for egg bhurji, and they included more readily available ingredients like ピーマン (green pepper), curry powder, and red pepper flakes. It may not be authentic egg bhurji, but maybe think about it as scrambled eggs with onion, peppers and spices.
