Egg gravy


Boiled eggs make slits on top of each egg 
2 onions chopped
2 green chilli (i used1)
1 tsp red chilli powder
half a tea spoon of turmeric powder
Ginger garlic crushed
3/4 tsp of coriander powder
1 tsp of cumin
5 tomatoes
Curry leaves 
Coriander leaves for garnish
2 tbsp Oil
my own masala ( Pepper 1tbsp and coriander seeds dry roast both of these ingredients and powder it)

For tempering:  1/2 tsp mustard seeds or vadagam, jeera 1/2 tsp, curry leaves.


Heat oil in  a pan and add mustard seeds or vadagam and let them splutter.  Add jeera, curry leaves let that fry a second.
Add chopped onions and green chillies, freshly crushed ginger garlic and fry until light brown.
Add chopped tomatoes and fry for 5 minutes until the raw smell goes off.Add turmeric powder, coriander powder,  salt,chilli powder, my own massala  mix well and saute for a few seconds.
Add water if you like to have thin gravy. Close the lid, cook in low heat till you get the required consistency. and then finally add the boiled eggs and stir for a while, now turn off the heat, garnish with coriander.  Serve this with hot rice or rotis or idly/ dossa.
