Egg Curry

Protien is a very important part of our diet, if you closely look at the picture you will not find any egg yellows as I used only the whites to make the curry more healthy :)


-Eggs - 3
-Onions -1 large
-Tomatoes - 3 roma
-Cilantro - 1/4 bunch
-Red Chilli - 3
-Evaporated Milk- 1/2 cup [for everyday cooking I use 2% Milk]
-Whipped cream-1 tbsp **Optional**
-Garlic - 4 cloves minced
-Ginger - 1 tea spoon minced
-Garam Masala-1 tea spoon
-Dhanya-Jeera powder- 1 tea spoon
-Cinnamon stick -1/2
-Bay leaves- 3
-Elachi Powder


- Add oil and after heating it add Bay leaves Cinnamon and red chilli after you smell the fragrance add finely chopped onions to it along with a pinch of salt for the onions to sweat.

-Cover it with a lid and allow them to cook until they are slightly golden brown in color, add ginger garlic paste and saute it, add tomatoes and cook them until all the water evaporates and oil oozes out. Add garam masala, Badshah Kitchen king Masala, dhanya-jeera powder, paprika and salt if required.

-Add evaporated milk and whipped cream and let them cook until the evaporated milk reduces to half the amount that was poured initially.

-Meanwhile boil the eggs in a separate bowl, when done peel the egg shells off cut them into half.

- **Optional** You can add 2 tea spoons of oil, add the eggs and sprinkle a tea spoon of paprika and pepper powder. // Or directly add the pealed boiled eggs to the gravy.

-After the gravy is cooked completely, add the eggs to it. Once you add eggs you need to carefully saute them so that the egg yellow and white are not separated.

-Finally garnish the curry with cilantro.

P.S: Do not focus on the container in which the curry is :P , Look at the curry for color and texture idea :)
