Egg curry

Almonds - 8 (blanched)


Eggs - 5 (hard boiled)
Onion - 1 sliced
Red chilly powder -1tsp
Dania powder- 1tsp

Adjust the spices according to your palatte

For garnishing

Coriander leaves and curry leaves


Grind all the ingredients listed under "ingredients for paste" into fine paste using yogurt and little water.Hard boil the eggs and cut them into half.Heat oil in a pan and fry onions till they are golden brown and then add the ground paste.Fry till the raw smell goes away.Now add the red chilly, dania,jeera powders and salt and fry for another 2-3 min.s. Finally add the eggs.Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and curry leaves.Serve it with rice/chappathi/laccha.



Atta flour - 2 cup
Salt- as needed
Oil/ghee mixture - as needed


Mix atta,salt and water to make chappathi dough.Take a small ball of dough and roll out into a big chappathi.Now brush the oil-ghee mixture all over the chappathi and fold it into half.Now roll out the folded chappathi again and keep folding and rolling out until it reaches your desired size.Keep brushing oil-ghee mixture in between the folds.I folded 4 times.These folds make a layered latccha.I had cut these into a rectangle shape ( say..just for the photo purpose).
