Egg masala

I was flying Jet Airways this morning, from Delhi to Mumbai, and saw this recipe for Egg Masala in one of the magazines at the airport. I have made this recipe in so many different ways - only with egg whites, with egg yolk, one way is to cook the raw egg entirely in the curry, there are so many ways, this is a nice recipe. I hope you all like it.


6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced in half, egg yolk removed and set aside
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
2 cups finely chopped Roma tomatoes
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
7-8 curry leaves, each leaf torn in two
3 tablespoons oil
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, for garnish


In a wide sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat and saute onions and curry leaves, for about 7-8 minutes, until onions are light brown in color.
Add spice powders and tomatoes, and cook covered for 5 minutes, stirring every minute.
Add eggs (not yolk) and adjust salt. Sprinkle with crushed egg yolk and chopped cilantro, serve with Indian bread.
