Egg Curry and Chapati

Summer Express Cooking Event
For this event,I have used egg kulambu which takes about 15 - 20 min. depending on how much of the ingredients we already have ready like chopped onions ,ginger garlic paste ,tomato puree etc.I'm doing it the traditional way .Cutting all the necessary prior to cooking .As an accompaniment I'm using ready made chapati ,which we just have to toss slightly in the tawa before serving .

Ingredients :
Onion - 2 big
Tomato - 2 bigGinger - 2 " piece
garlic - 10 pieces
Green chilly - 3
Egg - 3
corriander leaves for garnishing
curry leaves a few
curry pattai - 2 small peices
all spice leaves- 2
egg kulambu powder / Garam masala - 2 tsp
Ghee / oil for frying
Method :
Heat the ghee in a kadhai.
Chop the onion and tomato(1 min)grate the ginger and garlic(30 sec.)
when the ghee is hot ,add the pattai and all spice leaves .stir for a sec .
Now add the onion ,fry till colour changes,now add the chillies, ginger and garlic .Fry till it becomes golden brown .
Now add the tomato and keep frying till the skin leaves the pulp.turn off the flame and put the above in a mixer and make a smooth paste .
Heat ghee in the kadhai and pour the blended mix into it .add the masala powder, salt and a liberal pinch of sugar,mix well.
When the puree turns hot ,Take each egg one by one and carefully break it open as close to the puree as possible .
Do not stir .simmer and cover for 3 min.turn off the flame .
Carefully transfer into a bowl making sre the eggs remain intact .
Garnish with Corriander .
Chapati :
Ingredients :Readymade chapati - 10
Method:Slightly toss the chapati's in the tava before serving .
This express meal takes barely 15 - 20 min. to make, nutritious too as it is a Balanced one.
