Eggs - Cauliflower

Do you think Eggs and Cauliflower is an unusual combination? Well, try it out, you would love it! I had this combo at my sister-in-law's place and liked it.

4 hard-boiled eggs (peel the shell, set the eggs aside)
5 cups cauliflower florets (small florets)
1 big onion, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp

Salt - to taste
Red chillie powder - to taste (optional)
3 green chillies - slit lengthwise
Garam masala powder - 2 tsp (I use home-made. Store bought would be fine too)
Chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp cream

For seasoning:
4 cloves (coarse powder)
2 dried red chillies, broken into pieces
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tbsp

Curry leaves
  • Heat oil in a wide skillet, sprinkle a pinch of turmeric and fry the boiled eggs until they turn golden. Remove to a plate, make 4 incisions on each egg and set them aside
  • Add the seasoning ingredients to the skillet in the order above
  • Immediately add chopped onion, cover and cook until onion turns soft
  • Add tomatoes, cook until they soften and add cauliflower florets
  • Sprinkle turmeric, salt and slit green chillies - cover and cook until cauliflower is half done
  • Add the eggs, red chillie powder and garam masala powder
  • Adjust salt, mix, cover and cook until cauliflower is done
  • Add chopped coriander leaves and cream, mix well. Turn the heat off
A delicious gravy variety to go with rice!
