Hope to see you all in the coming posts as well.Do give this a try and enjoy!!




Preparation time ~ 20 minutes
Cooking time ~ 15 minutes
Author ~ Julie
Serves ~ 4
Ingredients
eggs 5 hard-boiled & peeled
onion 3 medium sliced thin
tomato 2 medium chopped
ginger chopped 1 tbsp
green chillies 2-3 vertical slit
kashmiri chilly powder 1 tsp
hot chilli powder 1/2 tsp
coriander powder, 2 tsp
fenugreek powder, uluva podi 1/4 tsp
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
curry leaves
coconut milk thick 1/2 cup or whole milk 1/2 cup
coconut milk thin 2 cups
salt
oil 2-3 tbsp
sugar a pinch


Watch on YouTube-







Method
  • Wash the eggs and boil them with enough water and salt.Remove from heat, add ice-cold water to it, and then leave for some time.Peel the shell and wash, make a slit in each egg. Keep aside in a plate.
  • Heat oil in a pan, sauté onions followed by chopped ginger, green chillies and curry leaves. Sauté till the onions turn lightly browned. Add the spices on low flame and sauté until the raw smell vanishes. Add the chopped tomatoes.Toss and cover it till 5 minutes on medium flame till tomatoes are cooked.Adjust salt. 
  • Uncover the lid, mix until mashed and combined. Add 1 1/2 cups of thin coconut milk to this, let the gravy come to a boil.
  • Let it cook for 6-7 minutes until the tomatoes are mashed very well, and the gravy slightly thickens on moderately high.Cut gashes on the hard-boiled peeled eggs and add. Add a pinch of sugar.
  • Lower the flame, add the thick coconut milk.Mix well, finally add fenugreek powder. Remove from flame and keep covered for 10 minutes.Serve warm with idiappam or rotis. 

NOTES
* You can add boiled cooled whole milk too instead of coconut milk, though coconut milk adds more flavour.
* You can even add 1/2 tsp garam masala too.

I make this curry often, but your yellow yolk looks so nicely & perfectly cooked. Mine is always over cooked!! I think it is all in the timing that we leave these eggs to boil.
