What do you need to make Egg curry

4 Eggs
1 Big size potato cut into medium pieces (cut 1 potato into 8 pieces)
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Cumin powder
1 tsp corriander powder
1/2 tsp Kashmiri Lal Mirch
2 Green Chillies finely chopped
2 big onions cut into pieces (cut 1 onion into 6 pieces)
2-3 pieces of lahsun chopped
1 Bay Leave
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
Salt to taste
Pinch of Sugar

How to make Egg curry

Boil the eggs for 7-8 min. 
Take them out & peel them. 
Now cut each egg into 2-3 pieces with a sharp knife and merinate them with turmeric powder and salt.
You can cut them in small pieces as well, or you can keep them as it is. If you dont want to cut them in pieces, then make cut marks in egg white body so that masalas can enter.

Now heat mustard oil in a pan & gently fry the egg pieces. 
We need to very carefull while handling the eggs in the pan,as the egg yolk is very soft in nature. So chances of breaking is there. 
Slowly fry them till they each side fried completely. 
Keep the fried eggs aside.

Now fry the potato pieces in the leftover oil or if required add 1-2 tsp of oil & keep them aside.

Again heat the pan with little oil(3-4 tsp). 
Add the bay leave & stir for 1-2 min. 
Now add the onion & lahsun(garlic) and fry for next few minuts. 
As the onions get brown, add salt, green chillis, Cumin, corriander, Kashmiri Lal Mirch  & Turmeric  powder & stir for 2-3 min. 
Pour around 200ml (a glassful) water. 

If required add a pinch of sugar. 
Now add the egg pieces & the garam masala powder. 
Cook for 7-8 min  It will be a gravy curry. 

Serve with hot steamed rice.
