Egg roast!

Hello all...Hope u guys had a great weekend..Mine was relatively quiet as usual (no surprises there!). So Sunday being a lazy day and all, I decided to cook a lazy meal..and for me, any meal with egg constitutes to a lazy meal..he he! It's just for the simple reason that it takes hardly any time to cook. I have posted a recipe for egg curry with coconut milk at the bottom..and yes, I do promise to sort them out in categories, but for now, let's see how to prepare a nice,easy going egg roast!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 eggs hard boiled
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4 teaspoon
  • Red chilly powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander powder- 2 teaspoons
  • Garam Masala powder (All Spice powder)- 1 teaspoon
  • Ginger Garlic paste- 1 teaspoon (I bought this at the store. Alternatively you can substitute with 2 cloves of garlic smashed and a small piece of ginger smashed).
  • Green chillies- 2 finely chopped
  • Onion, medium sized- 1, finely chopped
  • Curry leaves- Generous amount
  • Coriander leaves to garnish
  • 1 tablespoon refined oil
  • 4 teaspoons water (1/4 cup)
  • Salt to taste
METHOD
  • Boil eggs for about 20 minutes on a medium flame with a pinch of salt.
  • Once boiled, drain out the water and let it cool before removing the shell.
  • In a separate vessel, add the oil and wait for it to heat up.
  • Once heated, splutter the mustard seeds.
  • Add a few curry leaves, followed by the ginger garlic paste and green chilies.
  • Add finely sliced onion along with some salt to cook it faster. Wait for the onions to turn a golden brown. DO NOT burn them.
  • Once this emits a nice aroma, add the turmeric powder, red chilly powder and coriander powder. Reduce the flame when doingg this, otherwise the powders will get burnt.
  • Once they emit a nice aroma, add 2 teaspoons of water from a recently boiling kettle.
  • Add salt and let it cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Now add the deshelled eggs, which have been cut into half (totally 4 pieces).
  • Coat them gently with the masala and allow it to cook for another 3 minutes on a low flame.
  • Finally add the all spice powder. This step can be omitted if you wish.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve piping hot with bread, chapathys, naan or parathas.
A little snap for your viewing pleasure..:)

There we are...try it out and let me know what you think. i have a request for a tiramisu from my cousin, so I shall be posting that some time soon. Watch this space for more. Until then, take care and God bless!
