Omelette Kara Kuzhambu

Just had this for lunch today (of course left over!) .The longer this Kara Kuzhambu sits , the better the taste!

What you need

Eggs - 3
Onion - 1 small chopped( for omelette)
Tamarind - 1 small lemon sized (soak and extract)
Coconut - 1/4 cup ( grind-ed smoothly)
Garlic - 3-4 pods [Optional]
Sambar Powder - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Whole red chillies - 4
Curry leaves - a few
Salt - as needed
Water - as needed

How you will make it

In a pan, heat oil and splutter mustard seeds and slowly add curry leaves, red chillies and finally garlic pods.When these are slightly roasted, lower the flame a little and add Sambar powder.Saute for just a minute or so and add in the tamarind extract with just enough water.Add in salt and let this boil on medium high flame.After 5-6 minutes of boiling lower the flame to medium low and add in coconut paste. Let this again boil on medium low flame until you get the 'kuzhambu/curry' consistency.In the mean time while curry is boiling, beat eggs with little salt and add chopped onion.Make small small cute little omelettes which are going  for a skinny dip in the curry :D

Once you have the Kuzhambu/Curry in correct consistency, lower the heat to low and add in the little omelettes to it. Once all the omelettes are added , switch off the heat.Let this kuzhambu sit at least for 20 minutes, to let omelette swoop in all that juicy flavors from the kuzhambu.

Serve hot with Rice.

Note : Garlic can be optional. I adore garlic pieces in kara kuzhambu, so I add them in even if it is not necessary :D
