Eggs in Yoghurt Gravy

July 31, 2009
Seems like... a lot of effort is required to prepare this meal, but it is actually quite simple....

  • Hard boiled eggs -
  • 1 tub of natural yoghurt
  • 1 brown onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 1/2 ground coriander seeds
  • 4 spice - ground 1/2 inch ginger, 2 garlic, 1 teaspoon tumeric and 1 teaspoon chilli powder.
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon of pounded fresh coriander and mint leaves
Saute the onion until they are soft. Add in the yoghurt and cumin, 4 spice, ground coriander and salt. Stir continuosly until the liquid from the yoghurt evaporated. The milk mixture and spice turn golden brown.
Put the lightly pricked eggs (with a fork.. to get the flavour of spice in) into the pot. Add 450ml of water. Gently cook the eggs until they are heated through then continue to cook on low fire until oil rises to surface. Sprinkle with garam masala and add the pounded fresh herbs.
