1 cup = 250ml, 1 tbsp = 15ml, 1 tsp = 5ml
3Hard Boiled Eggsshell removed
1Large Onion Sliced Finely
1Large Tomato Pureed Raw
1/2tspGinger Garlic Paste
1Green Chilli Chopped
1tspKashmiri Red Chilli Powder
1/2tspBlack Pepper Powder
1/2tspGaram Masala Powder
1/4cupThick Coconut Milk
Salt as needed
12-15Fresh Curry Leaves
In a thick bottomed pan heat 2 tbsp coconut oil. Add 1/2 tsp fennel seeds and let them crackle.
Next add 12-15 fresh curry leaves, 1 green chilli roughly chopped and 1 large onion finely sliced.
Fry it on low flame for next 5-7 mins until the onions are golden brown. And then add 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste.
Cook until there is no more raw smell and then add spice powders – 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala powder.
Fry for a few seconds and add 1 large tomato pureed. Mix well.
Cook for a couple of minutes and add little bit of water as needed. Continue cooking on low flame for 4-5 mins.
Add salt as needed and cook it covered on low flame for another 4-5 mins.
Oil should ooze out from the edges and the curry should condense, coming together.
Meanwhile, make slits all over the 3 hard-boiled eggs.
Drop the boiled eggs into the curry and mix well. Cook covered on low flame for 3-4 mins.
Now add 1/4 cup thick coconut milk and switch off the heat.
Mix well and adjust the consistency of the curry if needed by adding a little bit more water (optional).
Coconut milk can be made using ready-to-use coconut milk powder (add 3 tbsp for 1/4 cup of hot water). To extract fresh coconut milk, grind 1/2 cup of grated coconut in 1/4 cup of warm, strain off the extract to get first milk which is thick.
The same recipe can be used with boiled vegetables. Alternatively it can be used with chicken (cook chicken in the curry) to make Nadan Kozhi Curry.
