  2. Onion   1 medium(sliced)
  3. Tomato   1/2 medium(chopped)
  4. Curry leaves    1 sprig

  12. Oil    2 tsp
  13. Mustard seeds   1/2 tsp
  14. Fennel seeds   1/2 tsp
  15. Chana dal   1-2 tsp(optional)
  • Boil eggs with enough water for 15 minutes in medium heat. Then turn off the stove and leave the eggs in stove stove for 5 minutes. Then drain and peel the shells and cut each in to 4 pieces(vertical) and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and fennel seeds wait till it splutter then add chana dal and fry till light golden brown.
  • Then add crushed ginger , garlic, curry leaves and sliced onions and saute for 1-2 minutes.
  • After that add tomato and saute till it turns soft and add chilli n garam masala powder and stir fry for a minute.
  • Now add enough salt,sprinkle little water and stir well and then add cut egg pieces and gently mix well with the masala. Take care not to mash the egg yolks with masala.
  • Then add pepper powder and mix well and lastly add finely chopped cilantro and turn off the stove.
  • That's it...Masala Egg Pepper Fry is ready to serve.

Instead of chilli powder you can also add slit green chillies and stir fry along with onion and proceed other steps.
You can also add fried curry leaves just before serving ( I did so).
Instead crushed ginger n garlic , use 1/2- 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste.
