Eggs are a very versatile ingredient. It can be used for all type of meals, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or even snacks.
My family loves egg curry. It is one of the main dishes for lunch or dinner. Egg curry can be prepared in many ways. I chose one of the easiest recipes. Egg Malai Masala was a recipe I grew up with.
While searching through my old diaries, I found this recipe handwritten by Ma. So here is the recipe for Egg Malai Masala.
2 big onions
Few green chillies
Cilantro leaves chopped
1 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp ghee/clarified butter
Salt to taste
Boil the eggs and peel.
Grind onion and ginger and some chillies.
Add the salt and the eggs.
Slowly incorporate the milk or the yogurt mixed milk.
Lower the heat and stir slowly.
Add the milk.
Then sprinkle garam masala and simmer on low heat till gravy thickens.
Sprinkle chopped cilantro and sliced green chillies.
Serve hot with naan or steamed white rice.
