Egg Curry

               The best way to our men's heart is an egg based dish . Most bachelors  are so used to relying on eggs for a quick meal, that even after they are married and lucky enough to have a spouse who loves to cook,  they  still think of eggs, whenever asked the  famous question ,..".what shall I make for breakfast or as in our case  lunch or dinner"???

               Omelets,  fried eggs, egg curry, just eggs in any and every conceivable form is just fine. So last night we had some simple, but wholesome egg curry with some whole wheat bread to compliment it. Perfect finale to the long weekend!!

Hard boiled eggs: 4-6

Hard boil 4-6 eggs and keep aside. Grind onions, tomatoes and ginger to fine paste. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a heavy bottomed pan add the cumin and bay leaf when the cumin stops spluttering add the slit green chillies then add onion/tomato paste, roast to a light brown color, till the paste thicken and leaves oil, now add the garam masala, jeera/cumin powder,salt, red chili powder and turmeric.
