I wish all of you have a great vacation, and the New Year brought more joy to all your lives.

Here in India the only two of vacation in winter are Christmas and New Year, and so there is no bypassing the daily routines. Each night I think of the easiest ways of cooking things. Last night, it was the turn of eggs to be cooked in an easy but tasty way.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Eggs (Dim): 4

Potato (Alu): 2 medium sizes , cut into quarters

Onion (Peyaj): 1 medium size, chopped finely

Ginger- garlic paste (Ada-rasun bata): ½ teaspoon

Garlic (Rasun): 3-4 cloves

Garam Masala: ½ teaspoon

Chili powder (Sukhno lankar guro): ¾ teaspoon

Turmeric powder (Halud guro): ½ teaspoon

Mustard oil (Sarser tel): 1 tablespoon

Preparation:

  • Boil the potatoes and eggs for 10 to 12 minutes, or till the eggs are hard boiled
  • As the eggs are boiled, take out the shells and keep aside
  • In a wok heat half of the oil and fry the eggs and potatoes separately. Do not over fry, just fry till a golden layer is formed over the eggs and potatoes. Keep aside
  • Pour in the rest of the oil in the wok, and sauté the onions
  • Throw in the garlic cloves and ginger garlic paste to the sautéed onions and fry for 1 minute over medium flame
  • Add the spices excepting garam masala and fry for half a minute more
  • Pour in 1 cup of water, or if you want more gravy then pour more
  • Let the curry gets cooked and thickened
  • When the curry is of your wanted consistency carefully drop the eggs and cook for 2 to 3 minutes
  • Sprinkle the garam masala and take it out of flame

Egg curry goes well with rice, paratha or roti. So, have it as a side with anything of your choice.

I love the smell of mustard oil, and so use it for making curries, those of you who don’t like it can also try preparing with sunflower or vegetable, in that case any oil of your choice.

    Would you believe me if I told you I would eat this as a main dish, not as a side? It looks that good and delicious!!! I’ve never used mustard oil before, will keep my eyes open for it from now on.
    Thanks for sharing your creativity with the Original Recipes Round-Up 🙂
