Egg masala ( Moutte gojju/Mouttai masala)

Egg masala is a common recipe in south India. For lacto-ova veggies, they always look for egg recipes which are spicy, easy and tasty. This one practically goes well with all varieties of rice ... may it be plain steamed rice or rich biryani rice. This is a real quick one. Here goes the recipe...

Boiled eggs - 4 nos
Onions - 1 nos
Ginger -garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Chilly powder - 4 tbsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 1 nos
Salt for taste
Oil - 4 tbsp

To grind:
Onions - 1 nos
Tomatoes - 2 nos

Grind the 'to grind' ingredients into smooth paste and keep aside. In a wok, heat oil, add chopped onions and fry till golden brown. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for a min. Now add chilly powder and stir for 1/2 a min. Now add the ground paste and fry till oil separates. Finally add garam masala, pepper powder, boiled egg (can cut them into two, or just slit them and add), salt, green chillies slit lengthwise and stir for a min. Turn off the flame, serve hot with roti, rice etc.

Adjust the spice as per requirement. Can add water if gravy is required.
