Scrambled egg in coriander curry

For last 2-3 weeks, I had been posting only Konkani Recipes. Then there were a few mails from my friends, who wanted some easy to do recipes(basically they wanted something other than Konkani food, because these friends of mine are great Konkani cooks). One of my friend is a great lover of egg and he asked me for egg recipes. So I thought of sharing some interesting recipes, which I am sure everybody will like. (Any comments welcome).

So I am back to my this weeks theme. Egg recipes.. When I was in Belgaum, my pachi(mom’s sister,I think I never mentioned it here, but she is the person from whom I had learnt all my easy-to-do cooking initially, because those were the things I could have prepared in my hostel room without using mixer) always prepared a “cauliflower gravy”. It had a very peculiar taste. I just loved that gravy. When I started cooking, I asked her for this recipe, but she was confused, because she did not know what I am referring to. She had so many different gravies and I was unable to give her any description. I just knew it had cauliflower in it. So I always kept my eyes and ears open for getting this recipe.

Recently, when I was trying different things with egg, I came across this recipe. I prepared it and it had the same taste of my favourite ‘cauliflower gravy’. I just loved it. The scrambled egg increases the taste of the gravy to a great extent.

Ingredients:
Eggs 4
Onions 2
Tomatoes 2
Coconut 1/2 cup
Ginger 1″ piece
Garlic 3-4 flakes
Green chilles 4
Coriander leaves 6-7 strands
Coriander seeds 1/2 tea spn
Oil
Salt

Method:
Heat oil in a pan and break eggs into it. Add a bit of salt and scramble the eggs. Keep aside.
Grind together 1 onion, 1 tomato, coconut, coriander seeds, coriander leaves, green chillies, ginger, garlic to a smooth paste.
Heat oil and fry onions. When they turn brownish in color, add the chopped tomatoes. Cook for 5 mins. Add the ground masala and salt. Cook till the gravy is almost done. Now add the scrambled eggs, mix well and cook for 5 mins.
Serve hot with rice or chapathi.

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 20min

Hi
I tried it for dinner last night and it turned out to be a disaster. The smell of the raw onion was too much and it went into the dustbin rather than our tummies. If i would have fried or blanched the onion before using it in the curry, then it would have been nice.
But i liked this recipe very much. so I am going to try it once again with blanched onions.

Shilpa, can i do that or do you have any suggession for me?

Shilpa: You can fry the paste for a while to get rid of smell. If your don’t like the onion smell at all, you can blanch it.

Dear Shipla,
I am thankful daily that I found your site. I have been struggling with technique for many years and your guidance is a blessing. Finally I am making proper idli, lovely dosa and roti. Being foreign born to this cuisine I needed an Indian family to show the way, and you and all the wonderful friends sending comments are the best.
The egg in coriander curry was awesome; after success after success with other recipes, I plan to eat my way through your entire repertoire!
