Egg Masala - Dry

This is no regular egg masala. This recipe I am posting today is the cross breed between Whole egg masala and egg Burji or Indian scrambled eggs. This is way easy to prepare and serves as a good substitute when you have serious chicken cravings and do not have any chicken on hand. I bet most of you will have eggs stored in your refrigerator for quick fix meals. So here is my recipe for Egg Masala.


6 hard boiled eggs
2 eggs (not boiled. eggs for burji)
1 1/2 large onions chopped
1 green chilli chopped
3/4 tbsp ginger- garlic paste
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
2 tsp red chilli powder - adjust per spice level
Salt for taste
1/2 tbsp ghee


2 tbsp oil
1 dried red chilli
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
1 tsp chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
couple of pinches of hing(Inguva)
1 clove
small piece of cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
4 or 5 curry leaves


Fill a sauce pan with water and salt the water generously. Add in the eggs and hard boil them for 25 minutes. Then run them under cold water, take the shells off and make couple of slits on the eggs.
In a pan heat the ghee and add the peeled eggs and let them brown on all the sides as shown in the picture above. Sprinkle with pinch of salt and black pepper and keep them aside.
In the same pan heat the oil and add the temperings. Let them splutter. Add in the chopped onions, salt and green chillies. Fry them till onions are golden brown in color. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry for another 2 minutes.
Now add the red chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala and give it a good stir. Fry for a minute or two. At this point check for the seasonings and adjust if necessary. Now crack the two eggs and scramble them like you do for egg burji. Add in the hard boiled eggs into the pan and let everything integrate on low flame for 3 to 4 minutes. Give a gentle stir in between. Turn off the heat and take into a serving bowl and garnish.
I ran out of cilantro leaves so I used green onions for my garnish. If you have cilantro leaves on hand garnish with about 2 tbsp of chopped cilantro .

Andhra royyala vepudu/Andhra style Prawns(Shrimp) fry

My version of shrimp/Prawn curry from my native place popularly known as royyala vepudu. This recipe brings back so many wonderful memories. This being one of my favorite foods and me being a very picky eater growing up, my mom used to give me more of this curry than my brother. Once I grew up, I was told if you leave your favorite food item in the name of god, your wish will come true. My wish came true and I gave up shrimp because this is hands down, the one food I love the most. Been 13 years I gave up Shrimp but still make the curry for hubby dear because this happens to be his favorite too.  Ingredients 3 cups finely chopped Onion Salt per taste(around 3 tsp) 1 tsp Turmeric  2 tsp Coriander powder 6 Green Chillies slit length wise 1 tsp Cumin seeds  3 tsp Ginger garlic 3 to 4 tsp Red chilli powder depending on your spice level 1 tsp Garam masala 3 tbsp Oil 3 tbsp ghee 10 to 15 pieces cashews Handful of Curry leaves, coriander leaves Marinati
