Spicy Egg Fry

I love eggs in all forms.Its easy to cook at the same time you can make a nice and nutritious side dish in a matter of minutes. Here is one such recipe which takes about 10 0r 15 mins if you have the boiled eggs ready.Especially when you are cooking an elaborate lunch or dinner this recipe comes handy to whip up a decent side dish as it goes well with rice as well as any flat breads(poori, rotis...)

4 eggs
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp pepper powder
curry leaves(optional)
1/4 tsp fennel seeds/powder(optional)
4 tblsp tomato paste.
salt as per taste

Hard boil the eggs, remove the shell, and cut into two equal halves
Heat oil in a pan, add the chopped garlic , Curry leaves, and fennel powder
Then add the chopped onions and fry till translucent.Take care not to burn the garlic.
Now add the chili powder, pepper powder, salt and the tomato paste, mix well.
Add 1/4 cup water and allow it to boil well.The gravy should not be watery but thick.
Add the Eggs yolk side down, reduce the flame and allow it to cook for 5 - 8 mins.When the gravy is absorbed carefully turn the eggs around and mix with the thick masala.
Garnish with chopped coriander.
Goes well with poori's or any pulao
