Wow thats my favorite dish, I love Anda Bhurji with phulkas specially baked on gas flame. Very interesting names indeed, as Asha said blogging is kinda of educating yourself with all the different things unknown.
Nice and clean post with great photos

I have scrambled eggs for dinner but never with rotis. Why do you blanch the tomatoes?

Jyothi said...

Hi Saju! looks yummy and tasty. Even I will prefer for rotis only. Thanks for sharing your version and happy weekend and have a nice day.

Saju said...

Thank you all.
Blanching makes it easier to peel the tomatoes.

Saju, that has got to be the brightest looking scrambled eggs I've ever seen. I've never seen them made with potatoes.
