The season of lent has started. One of the most asked questions, by the hard core carnivores, during this period is “what to make with these vegetables” ?? No, I havent given up any non veg. Its usually said that you should sacrifice the most loved items/things/habit. Be it food, watching movies etc; I dont mind eating vegetables for 50 days, am ok with it.
I get the maximum number of requests for veg curries during this time. This is a good curry that you can make during lent season. Hey, you can make it otherwise also, lent or no lent :). I really liked this mainly because of the simplicity of ingredients and its super easy to make. This is going to be a regular at our place. You can finish making this in 10 mins or so. If you’ve any unexpected guests, this comes very handy.
Hope you will like it too..
Here is the recipe:
- Eggs – 2
- Onion – finely chopped – 1/2 cup
Tomato – chopped 1
Green chilly – 2-3
- Chilly powder – 1/2-1 tsp
Garam masala – 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
- Thick coconut milk – 1 1/4 cup
Heat oil in a pan and add number 2 ingredients. When onion becomes golden brown color, add the spice powders & salt and fry till the oil starts appearing. Add beaten eggs to this. scramble the eggs well along with the masala. When the eggs are cooked, add the coconut milk. Mix well. Cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from fire. Serve hot with chappathi/roti, puttu, idiyappam, appam etc;
Notes: If you want more egg pieces in the curry, you can add extra eggs. Also, if you are worried about the cholestrol part, add only the egg whites :). I used coconut oil for this recipe. You can adjust the spices as per your taste.
