Egg is always that easy to make and ready to serve recipe in all households I presume. The advertisement that used to be telecasted in DD National when I was young “SUNDAY HO YAA MONDAY ROJ KHAIYE AANDE” that was lovely. I loved that one very much. From school tiffin, to a side dish for the dinner table egg is always in the menu. So this time thought of tasting the egg in a different way. Here’s the recipe for you all.

Serves 2


Eggs (Dim): 4

Potato (Aalu): 2 medium sizes

Onion (Peyaj): 1 large

Garlic (Rasun):  5 to 6 cloves

Ginger garlic paste (Aada rasun bata): ½ tablespoons

Turmeric powder (Halud guro): ½ teaspoons

Chilli powder (Sukhno lankar guro): 1 teaspoon

Tomato sauce: 1 tablespoon

Garam Masala: ½ teaspoon


  • Cut the potato in large square pieces and the onions also.
  • Boil the egg and potato together.
  • De-shell the eggs and cut into halves
  • Heat oil in a wok and fry the potatoes and eggs separately. While frying the eggs do not toss them hard else the yolk will come out.

  • Heat oil in the wok, sauté the onions.
  • Throw in the garlic and again sauté for a minute or two.
  • As the onions turn golden brown add the ginger garlic paste, tomato sauce, turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt, water and cook till the gravy thickens.
  • Add the potatoes and put in some more water if required.
  • Add the eggs and toss lightly.
  • Sprinkle the garam masala and cook for a minute with a lid to retain the smell of it.

As a large egg contains alomost 43 miligrams of Calcium, I can’t stop but to send this post to Sangeeth
