    I counted four instances of bhurji dishes mentioned here: egg bhurji, paneer bhurji, mutter paneer bhurji, and mooli ki bhurji. Would you please explain the term “bhurji” in English? Is it a term that describes a particular Indian culinary style, or does it (also) mean “in the style of the Bhurji caste”? Thank you.
