The Gritty Egg Masala

Similar to a ghee roast, but less masala and less ghee and less time in general. Great for a pick me up on a Monday night!

In a tablespoon of melted ghee in a pan, roast together 4-5 dried red chillies, a spoon of coriander seeds, a spoon of cumin seeds and a spoon of garam masala for 3-4 minutes. Move the mixture to a blender and blend. Keep aside.

In the same pan, add a small chopped onion, a spoon of chopped garlic, and a handful of fresh curry leaves. Once the onion softens, add salt to taste, half a spoon of turmeric, and the ground mixture of spices. Roast together, add very little water to prevent burning, and let everything melt together. Then add 5 or 6 boiled eggs, cut in half. Mix well and stir for 2 min, squeeze a quarter of a lime and serve hot!
