  • How to Make Egg Masala:

    1. In a pressure cooker, add some water (around 2 cups), eggs and 1/4 tsp of salt and pressure cook up to 3 whistles.
    2. Open the lid after the steam releases.
    3. Peel the egg shell and create small slits around the egg (4-5 slits).
    4. This helps the curry to penetrate into the eggs.
    5. To make the sauce:
    6. In a sauce pan or a kadai, pour 1.5 tbsps of oil.
    7. When it is hot, add 1/4 tsp of cumin seeds, 1 bay leaf.
    8. Let the cumin seeds splutter.
    9. On a medium flame, add 1 cup of finely chopped onions.
    10. Saute for 10-12 minutes or until it shrinks and turns golden brown.
    11. You can add turmeric powder as you saute.
    12. Add 1 or 2 tbsp of water if the onion sticks to the pan.
    13. You can even add some salt to help the onion shed some moisture.
    14. Add 1 cup (little less) of finely chopped tomatoes and saute for another 5-6 minutes until it turns mushy and blends nicely with the onion.
    15. Now add the spices (cumin powder, coriander powder, chilli powder) and fry for 2 minutes.
    16. Add 1 tsp of ginger-garlic paste and saute for 3-4 minutes until the raw smell disappears.
