Cooking oil: 5 tsp.

Garlic (grated): 4 cloves

Lemon juice: 1 tsp.
Fenugreek seeds: 1/2 tsp.
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp.

Coriander powder: 1/2 tsp.
Cumin powder: 1/2 tsp.
Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp.

  1. Heat 3 tsp. oil in a pan and add half the mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the garlic and mix well.
  2. After half a minute, add the halved eggs to the pan. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp. red chilli powder and garam masala on the halved eggs. Let fry the eggs with garlic and the masala on a very low flame for about 15 minutes. 
  3. By the time, we prepare the curry. Heat the remaining oil in another pan and add the other half of mustard seeds, cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds. When they crackle, add the curry leaves and stir for a bit.
  4. Add the chopped onions and fry until they are transparent. Add green chilli and tomato and add salt. Mix well and let cook until the tomatoes are soft and mushy.
  5. Add coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder and the remaining red chilli powder and mix well. Let cook for another minute.
  6. Add tamarind and mix well and again cook for half a minute. By this time the eggs are fried too with a nice aroma and flavour of garlic clinging to them. Add the lemon juice to the pan where the eggs are being fried and give a good stir and turn off the flame. 
  7. Add these fried eggs to the prepared masala and stir. Turn off the flame and cover for 5 minutes. Remove cover and serve hot !!
