Egg curry

egg-drop-curry
Tasting food from friend/colleague’s lunch boxes has its own benefits. It is a way to learn new recipes for me. I tasted a very nice egg curry from my colleague’s lunchbox few days ago. I absolutely loved the taste. It brought back a lot of memories, as I used to make this delicious spicy and easy curry few years ago. I don’t know how it completely disappeared from my list.

As some of you already know, I like to make freshly ground masalas at home. My aayi gave me a very cute mortar and pestle last time when I visited India. So the powder gets ready in a few seconds. This is one flavorful, easy curry, which is a best fit for weekdays.

Ingredients:
4 eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
3-4 medium sized tomatoes (blanched and skin removed)
1 tea spn chopped ginger
1 tea spn chopped garlic
1 tea spn red chilli powder
4-5 curry leaves
1 tea spn mustard seeds
4-5 coriander leaves
Oil
Salt

Spice powder(Grind to powder)
: (Or use garam masala powder)
1 tea spn coriander seeds
1 tea spn cumin seeds
1 tea spn poppy seeds
3-4 cloves
1″ cinnamon

Method:
Heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they start popping, add curry leaves.
Add ginger, garlic, onions.  Add half of the spice powder, salt, chilli powder.
Chop the tomatoes and add it to the onions and fry till the tomatoes become a paste (you can just puree it and add it to the onions). Add 1/2 cup water and cook for a min.
Break the eggs and and add it to the curry. Add the remaining spice powder, close the lid and let it cook (without disturbing it).
Add coriander leaves and serve.

Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 25mins
