Egg Curry!!! Inspired by my Senior

Yesterday my husband was not so happy with what i packed for his lunch. So,in the morning i was pretty confused as what to prepare such that even if it gets cold after 4-5hrs of preparation ,it must not loose its tatse , and furthermore i wished that each bite of food must remind him of me....
                     Yestrday on a social website i saw a post by my favourite senior Shivpriya,where she had prepared egg curry and posted the pic on wall with the punch line"Dear Hubby, This is to bribe you to come home early" and Within moment Hubby replied "am on the way to home" :-). Amazing !!!!!! :-) This whole thing inspired me to prepare egg curry, But then one thing was very much clear to me, that am not gone do it in usual way . I kinda experimented with the egss, and guesss what!!!  Ladies and Gentlemen -- I came out with colourful results. Hope my hubby would be very happy with his lunch today :-)........ Fot this preparation i used

  • Eggs- 4
  • Tomato-1 finelly chopped
  • Onion-1 finelly Diced
  • cumin seeds-1 tea spoon
  • Ginger Garlic Paste- 1 Tea spoon 
  • Hunk Curd/yoghurt- 4 TSP
  • Salt as per taste
  • Turmeric Powder- 1.5 Tea spoon 
  • Pepper Powder-1/2 Tea Spoon
  • Cumin Powder-1/2 TSP
  • Coriander Powder-1 TSP
  • Garam Masala Powder- 1 Tea spoon
  • Oil -3 TSP
  • Coriander Leaves- shredded
  • Green chillies- finelly chopped
At first I Boiled the eggs and then after removing the outer shell i Marinted it for 10 minutes.
For the marinade i used:
  •  Salt
  • Turmeric 1/2 teaspoon
  • yoghurt-1 TSP
In a pan i heated the oil and then sauted the eggs until the skin became light brown on most of its part.
Once they turned brown i took them off on a kitchen towel.
For the gravy
  • Added some more oil in the same pan.
  • To this i added 1 tea spoon of cumin seeds and fried them until they started crackling 
  • To this i added green chillies followed by onions, sauted the onions until they turned tender but not brown.
  • At this point i added ginger garlic paste and sauted till the raw flavour was gone.
  • Added tomato.
  • By the time tomatoes turned tender, i made a paste of all the masalas by adding the remaining curd .and then fried them along with the tomatoes.
  • Stopped frying until i could smell some rich aroma coming out of the masalas.
  • Added  1 and half cup of water to it  and then the eggs finally. Covered the pan and allowed it simmer for next 10 minutes.
Whoa!!!!!! Done ,,,, the egg curry was ready to be packed followed by coriander leaves on top of it.....with some normal parathas. :-) Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyy :-)

Feel free to Improvize your egg curry. You can enhance the taste by adding a paste of cashewnuts and poppy seeds or you can also add some cream to this.
