  • 4-5 eggs
  • 2 Onions
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 3-4 Green chilies
  • 4 tbsp Edible Oil
  • 1 tbsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • as required Salt
  • 1 tsp Red chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Degi mirch Powder
  • 1 tsp Garam masala powder
  • Handful Chopped Coriander leaves


  • First of all, boil the eggs and peel them carefully, keep them aside.
  • Now, take a pan, or a kadai and heat it up nice. Add some edible oil into it and let it heat up. In the meanwhile, chop some onion, tomatoes and green chilies as well.
  • Now, in the hot oil, add cumin seeds and let it cook for about 10 seconds. After that, add in the chopped onions and fry it till very light brown. I don't like translucent onion in any gravy or curry dish.
  • Once the onions are nicely brown, go ahead and add in the ginger - garlic paste and toss gently. But, do not wait too long, or else onions will get burnt right in front of you.
  • Now, it is time to add in chopped tomatoes and chopped green chilies. Give it a right mix. At this time add required salt, it helps to mush up the tomatoes faster.
  • After about 5 minutes or so, add all the powdered masalas(spices) like red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, Degi mirch powder and mix it all.
  • Pour in a little water once you have added all the masalas in the pan. This way the curry will be saved from burning. Let the water get soaked in the masala, and let the curry cook for about another 5 minutes or so. It will not take too long for you to cook this curry.
  • Now, take the boiled eggs, either you can cut it into halves or add them like that only. Stir carefully and try not to break the eggs or scramble them. Just be gentle.
  • Now, throw in some freshly chopped coriander. Serve it hot with some Rotis (Indian Bread) or Steamed Rice.
