Boil eggs in seperate pan of water.
Place chopped tomatoes and cook until soft.
Add Amaali mix basaar and salt,
fry ingredients for 10-15 mins until the paste has changed colour and oil has been separated (you may add a little water at times to avoid spices burning).
Add chopped fresh chillis and fry few minutes.
Add 1/2 cup of boiling water for extra sauce.
Now add your pre- boiled eggs (halved). Stir gently.
Add some chopped coriander and garam masala (optional) fry couple mins.
Tips:You can also add a choice of addidional ingredients such as fresh spinach, mince meat before you add the eggs in. How about making extra paste and splitting it to create a meat and veg option. Impress your family and friends.
Don't forget you could always add garam masala near the end when your curry is almost done, gives a beautiful aroma..
A dish that goes really well with biryani.
