Egg Pulusu/ Boiled Eggs in tamarind gravy

Whenever tired of having same old omlettes and boiled eggs then, I prepare Pulusu using eggs. Its basically a tamarind based gravy with boiled eggs in it. Its usually served in combination with Mudda Pappu(or Plain Dal) and  tastes wonderful. The secret ingredient which makes this recipe delicious is crushing the garlic flake, cumin, fenugreek seeds together and adding it when the tamarind gravy is boiling. So, lets get started with the recipe :).

Serves - 2 people
Preparation and Cooking Time - 20 mins approx


Boiled Eggs - 3
Onion - 1 large finely chopped
Green chillies - 2 slit vertically
Few curry leaves
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup finely chopped
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp
Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp or according to your spice levels.
Garlic flakes(1) and Fenugreek+Cumin (1/2 tbsp dry roast) - roughly crush them together
Tamarind water - 2 cups
Salt to taste
Oil - 2-3 tbsp

Method :
  1. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin, fenugreek seeds, chopped onions, curry leaves, green chillies, turmeric powder and fry.
  2. Add ginger garlic paste, chilli powder,salt, chopped coriander and saute.
  3. Add tamarind juice to it, let it come to a boil and then add garlic+cumin+fenugreek crushed and cook on medium heat till the gravy becomes thick.
  4. Now add the boiled eggs(either each cut into 2 halves or as a whole) and cook on low heat for few more mins.
  5. Garnish with coriander and  Egg Pulusu is ready to serve.
  6. Serve with Mudda Pappu or Plain Dal.
