Tomato Egg Kurma

This is a recipe I had in my collection from almost 10 years back. If I remember correctly, I had noted this down from one of the cookery shows in some Malayalam channel. This is a simple recipe, so easy to make, yet gives good results. When I am short of time and want to give the feeling of having made something special, I make this. Even without adding nuts or coconut milk this curry has the rich gravy for a good kurma.

Onion - 2 nos, diced
Tomato - 2 nos, diced
Eggs - 2 nos, hard boiled
Garlic - 5 cloves
Green chilli - 3 nos
Curry leaves - a few
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1tsp
Meat masala/vegetable masala - 1 tsp

Separate the yolk of the hard boiled eggs and cut the whites into small pieces. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a kadai and when hot add onion, garlic, green chilli and curry leaves. Add all the other powders and saute till the raw smell is no more. Add tomato saute for a minute and add 1 glass of water. Add salt to taste and crumble the egg yolks into it. When the gravy thickens, add the egg whites. This curry goes well with chapathis or rice.
