  1. Wash and cut the tomatoes into small pieces (use soft tomatoes) and keep aside.
  2. Take a dish, heat the oil and add the finely chopped onions.
  3. Fry till golden brown, add the curry leaves, saffron, green chillies, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, cumin powder and fry well.
  4. Now add the chopped tomatoes and continue frying, add the salt.
  5. Add a cup of water and allow it to cook on high flame.
  6. When it is boiling turn it to sim and allow it to cook for about 15 minutes.
  7. Check the gravy consistency, add the chopped coriander leaves, smash the tomatoes as you are stirring to a semi solid consistency.
  8. Add the garam masala powder, boiled eggs to the gravy/curry.
  9. Remove from heat, garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  10. Serve as a side dish with dal, rice or with chappatti/roti/bread/bun

Note: You could use the same recipe with fish instead of eggs. Or you could make the fish using the same ingredients and method and use 1 tbsp of ready-made fish kolumbu powder + 1/2 level tsp methi powder instead of garam masala powder.

Editor`s notes: Eggs are a great source of protein. The yolk is rich in vitamin A, B vitamins, calcium and iron. Eating an egg for breakfast along with a couple of bread slices and a fruit is a good weight loss strategy as it keeps you feeling full longer and prevents you from reaching out for your mid-morning snack.
