Boiled Egg Masala

Egg is my ALL time favorite! I can literally have this anytime of the day, everyday. No kidding. I am constantly looking for ways to recreate innovative ways to make egg. But, somehow I end up making my and my husbands favorite, egg masala. Here is a fool proof recipe for a spicy egg masala. Pardon the ill-taken picture. I was in a hurry.

Egg (of course): 4
Onion: 1 large
Tomatoes: 2 finely chopped 
Green Chili: 1, chopped
Ginger Garlic Paste: 1 tbps
Red Chili Powder: 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Salt: according to taste

1. Boil the eggs in boiling water for 6 minutes. Peel the shell and keep aside.
2. In a saucepan, heat oil and fry chilies and onion for a few minutes.
3. Now add, salt, turmeric powder, chili powder and ginger garlic paste.
4. Now add tomatoes and cook them until they are soft.
5. Add the boiled eggs and switch off the stove.
6. Garnish with cilantro ( optional)

Serve this with rice/roti.
