Step 1: Boiling the eggs and frying them

  • At first in a pan pour water and put on gas. Place eggs lightly and put ½ tbs of salt and boil it well. When cracks start to appear the eggs are cooked so remove in a plate and wash with cold water so the skin peels off easily.
  • Make small cuts in the eggs with knife so they don’t blast or spit oil during frying.
  • In a medium kadhai, pour mustard oil, heat up and fry the eggs till light brown and take them out on a plate.

Step 2: The gravy

  • In the same kadhai, add chopped onions and fry a little. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry till light brown in color. Now add red chili powder and turmeric and mix well.
  • Add tomato puree and mix well. Add cumin powder, garam masala, coriander powder and salt and mix everything well.
  • Place the fried eggs and stir so the masala coats the eggs well. Add about 1 cup of water, mix and cook well.

At last add fresh chopped coriander and voila your masala egg curry is ready to be served. Happy cooking!
