Masala Egg Fry


Spicy masala egg fry is a quick and easy lunch box fix. It will also come handy especially if you have sudden unexpected guest at home. This can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish for rice. All you need to do is take hard boiled eggs coat them with marinade and lightly shallow fry. My mom used to make this for my lunch box along with tomato chutney and coconut rice or jeera rice and was my favorite combo.

Ingredients
1)Hard boiled eggs-4
Chilly powder- 3/4 tsp( as per taste)
( or pepper powder- 1/2 tsp)
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
Corn starch- 3/4 tsp
salt to taste

2)Onion- 1 medium
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Garlic - 3 pods
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- a few
Spring onions or coriander leaves- a little
lemon juice- a few drops(optional)
oil for frying
Salt to taste



 Cut hard boiled eggs into two. Make a paste of all those ingredients listed under one and apply on the eggs. Heat frying pan and pour one tsp of oil and layer the eggs and fry on both sides. In the same oil saute curry leaves,ginger and garlic for a minute followed by onions. Fry this till onions are golden brown. Add garam masala,lemon juice and spring onions/coriander leaves and fry for a minute. Carefully place the fried eggs and gently mix in every thing together. Serve this with jeera rice, pulao or simply with rice and sambar.

Try this ...
Hope you will all enjoy...

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
