Egg Kurma is a rich gravy dish that is made with coconut and cashew paste. The egg is slit so it absorbs the gravy a little and adds a nice taste.
The dish goes well with rice or roti. It's easy to make so a good one for lunch boxes as well.
I have used the same gravy and substituted the eggs with soya chunks ones and it turned out well.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Serves : 2
Eggs : 2 boiled

Soak cashews for 10 minutes and make a paste of cashews and coconut.
Heat oil in a pan and add the ingredients listed and fry for 1 minute. Add onions, turmeric and green chilies, sauté till they turn translucent. Add ginger garlic paste and fry for 30 seconds.
Add tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Make small slits to the boiled eggs and add them to the pan. Fry for 2 minutes. Add chili powder, salt, cashew coconut paste, 1 1/2 cups of water and cook for 3 minutes.
