Egg Pepper Roast

What are you guys,cooking today?? Everyday ladies start their day with the same question what to prepare for breakfast,lunch,snacks & dinner?? Is that right?? I do have this in my mind always and always prefer making something special for each day,may be slightly altering the ingredients.I know everyone does this.But then there is always a small sense of challenge in cooking,every time you try out something new.Anyways today's recipe is nothing new but a simple egg pepper roast which I have modified with some sauce.The main spice ingredient is pepper powder.This is a very lip smacking tasty dish that can be served with fried rice,chapathis or even bread or even pack for lunch box !!

eggs 6 boiled & de shelled
pepper powder 1 tsp
salt 1/3 tsp
for masala
onion 2 large thin sliced
tomato 2 large or 3 medium chopped
ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
light soy sauce 2 tsp(refer notes)
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

pepper powder 1 tsp
garam masala 1/2-3/4 tsp
cilantro 3-4 sprigs

lime juice 1/2 tsp(optional)
salt as needed
oil 2-3 tbsp

- Hard boil the egg and drop them in ice cold water ,de shell. Slit the eggs & keep aside.Add the pepper powder and salt to the hard boiled eggs.Leave for 15 minutes.
- Heat oil in a pan and fry the eggs till slightly browned on all sides with the marinade.It will take about 5-7 minutes.Remove in a plate .
-Add the onions in the same oil and saute onions till slightly browned and starts to leave the oil.Add the ginger-garlic paste,saute till the raw smell disappears.
- Add the tomatoes and saute till the mixture becomes very mushy.Cover and cook for 4 minutes.
- Add in the chopped cilantro and all the spice powders, saute.
- Add the soy sauce and slide in the eggs.
-Cover and cook for another 5 minutes.Add about 2-3tbsp of water if required,adjust salt.
-Mix well,turn off heat.Add in the lime juice.
-Serve hot with chapathis or fried rice!!!

Servings~ 4-5 adults

* You  can adjust the pepper powder amount as per your tolerance.
* Add salt with caution as soy sauce contains salt and the eggs coated also have salt.
* The lime juice add a tangy flavor to the masala.You can omit that if you don't like the taste.
* The masala may leave some oil at the end,you can discard that if you feel to avoid fat.
* Adding soy sauce is totally optional.It adds a nice flavor and color to roast.
