recipe in Marathi

Ingredients :

6.......................boiled eggs
2 ....................onions very finely chopped
2....................tomatoes very finely chopped
3...................green chillies ( roughly chopped )
7 to 8 ..........garlic cloves
2 cups .........thick coconut milk

1/2 tsp..........garam masala
1/2 tsp.........turmeric powder
1/2 tsp........jeera
2 tbsp..........coconut oil

Method :

Shell the boiled eggs and cut them into half.
In a pan heat coconut oil and add jeera , let it splutter.
Crush the garlic and roughly chopped chillies.
In oil saute onions till transluscent and add crushed garlic chillies.
Then add tomatoes and saute till oil separates.
Then add all the masala powders, salt and stir for 2  minutes.
When you get a nice aroma add coconut milk and rice powder .
Keep the flame medium and stir till the gravy thickens .
Arrange the halved eggs on the gravy and serve .

( Tip - Addition of rice flour helps in making the gravy thick without changing the taste. I used coconut powder mixed in little water to make thick coconut milk. If coconut powder is not available in your area the grind the fresh grated coconut and squeeze out the milk from it. )
