Steamed egg cubes curry

This is a different egg recipe. Usually we use boiled eggs in egg curries. But in this recipe, we steam the eggs initially and then we cut the steamed eggs into small cubes. These egg cubes look exactly like our paneer cubes. So maybe you can try to replace paneer with egg in some paneer curries. Also, when you eat these egg cubes, you can't make out its egg.Kids who don't like eggs can be given in this way and they will never know its egg. !!

3 eggs

1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2  tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder

4-5 curry leaves

1 tsp oil

Beat the eggs with a little salt, pepper, chilli powder. Add some coriander leaves if you like.Take a small vessel and coat it with oil.Pour the egg mixture into this.Close this vessel with a lid and place it in the pressure cooker.Pressure cook for about 15 minutes without putting the whistle.(When the steam started coming out, I kept it on medium heat. After 15 minutes, put a spoon and see if it comes out clean).

Meanwhile, you can prepare the gravy. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When they finish popping, add curry leaves and ginger-garlic paste.Saute for few seconds and add onions. When they turn transparent, add tomatoes and cook till they become tender.

Now add the spices-chilli, coriander, pepper powder and garam masala. Saute well and add a little water so as not to burn the masala. Now add salt and then the coconut milk. Mix well. Add water if you want more gravy.

Cut the steamed eggs into cubes of size as you like. Finally add the cubes into the gravy. Mix well and keep on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve hot.

Serves 2-3
