Egg Curry

The ‘Incredible’ egg is used by many of us in many many different ways – omelette, scrambled, boiled etc etc. For breakfast, baking, lunch, dinner and it really in true sense of the word is very VERSATILE. Don’t remember a day when the fridge was out of eggs and maybe that’s why they came to rescue when the fridge was out of supplies. So we were out of all the vegetables and had not done our grocery shopping for the week – the ‘Incredible’ egg made a tasty meal.

This is what you need:
4 boiled eggs – Deshelled and cut into half (horizontally or vertically ;))
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tablespoon garam masala powder
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 medium onion thinly chopped
1- 1/2 tomatoes thinly chopped
2 slit green chillies
2 dry red chillies
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1-1/2 teaspoon kasoori methi (dry fenugreek leaves)
1/2 cup of water

This is how you make:

Step 1: Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a sauce pan. Saute cumin seeds, onions, green chillies and red chilies till onions turn translucent. Add tomatoes, salt to taste, turmeric powder, cumin powder, ginger garlic paste and cook till tomatoes turn pulpy. This should take about 7- 10 minutes on medium heat.

Step 3: Now add in the sour cream and bring it to a boil and stir for about a minute on high heat. (This lets the sour cream cook with the onion and tomatoes)

Step 4: Now bring it back to medium heat and add water – let cook for about 5 mins. At this point, check for consistency of the gravy – it should be creamy and smooth. If it is watery cook for some more time.

Step 5: Once the consistency is creamy – add in garam masala powder and crushed kasoori methi. Bring it to a boil – add eggs. Switch of the heat and cover the sauce pan with the lid for about 5-10 mins. this will let all the flavors settle and come together.

This can be eaten and enjoyed with roti, naan, steamed rice or even with sliced bread.

Enjoy the protein 😉 – Try it and let me know if you like it.
