Egg Potato Curry

Posted by Picasa
Every Sunday growing up I remember my mom would make idly , dosa or on occasions appam for breakfast, now that I am a mom myself I have few traditions of my own since the weekdays are so busy with two kids and jobs the weekend I prefer to make a hearty breakfast and the one that my 6 year old loves the most is appam and egg curry. Some days he will specially request for it.
Since we all love it this one is a pretty common breakfast and easy to make too. I usually boil the eggs and potatoes the evening before make things a lot easier. Now to the recipe

What you need :
eggs-4 boiled
potatoes-1 boiled cut cub size
onion (shallots ) - 1/2 cup chopped
ginger- 1 tablespoon chopped
tomato-1 finely chopped
turmeric- 1 teaspoon
chilli pwd -2 teaspoon (add spice as needed)
paprika - 2 teaspoon
garam masala - 1 teaspoon
curry leaves- 4-5
half n half or coconut milk-1/4 cup
whole spices -cinnamon, cardamon, bay leaves ,anise ,mace (few each)
olive oil-2 tablespoon
salt as needed

heat a pan with the EVOO.
add the whole spices in to get the flavor going,
add chopped onions and chopped ginger into the hot oil and
cook till the raw taste goes away or till the onion turns a little brown
then add turmeric, paprika, chilli pwd, and garam masala and
let it cook for a few mins more till the spice blend into the onion .
Add the tomatoes mix well let it cook for at least 5-10 mins
add the salt as per your taste
let it simmer till the gravy is thick .
Add the eggs and the boiled potatoes mix well now the give the sauce a creamy texture add coconut milk or half n half. Simmer for few mins more DO NOT BOIL.
Serve with soft appams .
