I am a proud eggetarian. I can eat eggs for breakfast ,lunch ,dinner and snacks. So naturally I try to find new ways of having them. Without letting my love for eggs take me away from the recipe, here it is.
Eggs 2 boiled, 1 for scramble , 2 for poached
Potatoes diced very small pcs 2
Onion chopped 2
Tomato chopped 1
Turmeric powder, Coriander powdee, Garam Masala powder, Red Chilli powder
Heat oil in a pan add onions and saute. Add the ginger garlic paste and continue to fry this. Once the raw smell of the mix goes add the tomatoes. Saute this to soften tomatoes. Keep the flame on medium. Add the potatoes and mix well. Add the powder ingrediants and keep cooking this. Once the potatoes are slightly browned,season with salt, it will soften the potoates. Add 2 cups of water. Cover with lid and cook for 5-8 mins. Check if potatoes have softened. Break one egg into the mix and scramble it. This will slightly thicken the gravy. Let this cook for 2 mins and then break in the 2 eggs as a poach. Be careful not break the yolk while handling. You can cover the pan for 1 min to let poached egg set. Sprinkle salt on the yolks. Check for seasoning. By this time the curry should be thick and no excess water should be there. Now slice the boiled eggs and add them. Try to coat these with gravy. Sprinkle Kasuri methi and some garam masala. Take off heat and serve with roti.
Enjoy the egg-cess curry.
I do not enjoy cooking as much as i enjoy eating. But when you are ab adult you have to be able to cook to satisfy your cravings. I post my kitchen experiments often on FB but I do not share recipes mostly because I am nothing orginal to share. I have a recipe notebook given to me by my mom with all my favourite recipes of dishes she cooks for me. I have over the years added a few recipes of my choice. However,recently I realised there are some quick fix meals which are my original creations. These are simple dishes which can be prepared for one person as a breakfast dish or snack or lunch.
The 1st recipe I am sharing is a 10 min fried rice. It’s really very simple to prepare mainly for your leftover extra rice as a special lunch treat for yourself.
