Egg Masala with a twist

There are probably a thousand ways of cooking eggs and every family has its special egg recipe, well here is mine.

Unlike preparing the masala and breaking eggs in it, chop boiled eggs to pieces and add to the masala. Trust me, the same masala will taste different in both versions! So you can alternate between these two styles of cooking eggs.










Ingredients (serves two)


4 hard boiled eggs

3 onions finely chopped
2 tomatoes finely chopped
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp jeera powder
1/4 tsp sonth (Dry ginger powder)
1 tsp chinna ullipaya karam ( okay okay! don't give me that look!! it is roasted red chillies crushed with garlic pods and some jeera!! there is no fixed proportion, just try it with whatever proportion you like.)
1/4 tsp garam masala
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander
2 tbsp +1 tsp oil
salt to taste

Okay, so as the picture on the right suggests, heat oil in a pan and add onions. When onions turn transparent, add tomatoes and simmer the flame.

When oil separates, add all the masalas along with lemon juice and mix well. Cover with lid for 2 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp oil in a separate pan and fry the eggs as is till they turn golden brown. Now chop them into big chunks and add to the pan with masalas. Mix gently and sprinkle salt.


You are done! 


If you like, sprinkle some coriander at the time of serving. Serve with hot rotis/parathas :)
