Egg curry with cauliflower and potato in coconut milk ( Narkel dudhe dim , fulkopi r alu )

004

My Bubu ( grandma) had magical hands !! With a little stroke of her fingers every ordinary food used to turn out to be extra-ordinary !!!! The recipe I’m sharing today is one of my most favorites amongst all the “out of the world” creations of my grandma . My Mom and Aunts make them too , and they do a pretty good job but nothing comes closer to Bubu’s version . She will always be the best .
This is my humble endeavour to replicate my Bubu’s version.

Ingredients:

4 eggs ( hard boiled)
Cauliflower ( microwaved for 3 minutes or steamed)
Potatoes
4 green cardamoms
2 small sticks of cinnamon
2 bayleaves
1/3 rd cup onion paste
1 tea spoon ( heaped) ginger paste
1/2 tbl spoon garlic paste
1 and 1/2 tea spoon red chili powder
1 level tea spoon turmeric powder
1 tea spoon dry roasted cumin powder ( bhaja jeerar guro)
Salt to taste
1/2 cup thick coconut milk mixed in 1/4 th cup water*
Whole Green and red chilies
1/2 tea spoon sugar ( optional , but increases taste)
Vegetable oil

Other ingredient:

Some extra turmeric and red chili powder to rub the eggs before frying.
Ghee ( optional )

* Those who cannot get fresh coconut milk , try my way . I used maggie coconut powder . Mix 1/4 th cup regular milk with 1/4 th cup water . Now add 2-3 tbl spoon coconut powder into it and mix well . use this in your gravy .

Procedure:

1. Rub turmeric , chili powder and salt on the hard boiled eggs and keep aside for half n hour before frying .

2. Fry the eggs in the oil until the skin is little crispy and lightly brown . Take out the eggs from the oil. Fry the potatoes too and take them out too .

3. Now in the same oil add the whole garam masalas and fry for a while . Add the onion paste , ginger paste and garlic paste . Cook adding little water . Add the chili , turmeric powder and salt . Cook very well adding water little by little . Add the cauliflower and potato . If you wish you can steam or microwave the potatoes prior cooking . I did microwave the cauliflower for 3 minutes before I started cooking . It helps to save time without compromising the taste .
Add little water and the eggs . Now add the coconut milk and the whole green chilies . Cook until the gravy thickens . Add little sugar before turning off the stove .. If you wish , you may spread a tbl spoon of ghee at this pont . Sprinkle dry roasted cumin powder at the end .

Serve with plain rice or polau .
