Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Ginger – 2 tsp, thinly sliced

Green chilies – 2 – 3, slit

Tomato – 1 small, chopped

4. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Chilli powder – 1 tsp

Kashmiri chilli powder – 1.5 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tbsp

Meat masala powder – 1.5 tsp (I used Eastern meat masala powder)

Kudam puli / cocoum – 1 small

8. Salt – To taste

Method

Heat coconut oil in a kadai over medium-high heat. Splutter mustard seeds and fry curry leaves. Add onion, ginger, green chilies and sliced tomato. Saute until onion turns soft. Add the spice powders numbered 4. Cook over low heat until their raw smell disappears. Add ground coconut paste. Mix well. Add hot water and salt, to taste. Add a tiny piece of kudam puli to the gravy (if the gravy tastes very sour, take it out after cooking for a few minutes). Bring to a boil over medium-low heat. Make gashes on the eggs and add to the gravy. Cook for two minutes over low heat. Taste-check for salt. Add a few curry leaves and garam masala powder. Mix well and switch off. Serve after 20 minutes. It goes well with appam, idiyappam and pathiri.
