Tofu Bhurji

This is one of my favorite brunch or breakfast dish. If you are craving something spicy that is healthy then this is the perfect dish. The recipe is completely vegan and keto friendly and comes together very quickly. Its a hearty meal and sometimes we enjoy this dish for lunch or dinner. Pair this with toast or chapati to make it complete.
