How to make the recipe?
  1. Firstly boil eggs and keep aside. If you wanna know how to boil eggs perfectly click here Add little ghee/ oil saute chopped onion for 5 to 6 mins until dark brown in color but don’t burn them. Now add ginger-garlic paste, melon seed, cashews, poppy seed, almond, sunflower seed (if using), desiccated coconut, fennel seed, cumin seed, green chilies and curry leaves to it and saute for 2 to 3 mins. Grind the roasted mixture into a processor until smooth paste is formed. Add little water if required.
  2. Shallow fry eggs in oil Or clarified butter until light golden brown. Place fried eggs aside. In same oil shallow fry potatoes until crisp and golden brown in color. Place fried potatoes on absorbent paper. Take same oil and place it an kadai Or vessel on medium heat.
  3. Once oil/ghee is hot add caraway seed and cinnamon stick. Saute for a minute. Now add the grounded paste. Saute for 2 to 3 mins. Reduce the flame and keep stirring else the paste might stick to the bottom. Add little water if paste sticking to bottom.
  4. Add turmeric, garam masala, biryani masala powder. Give nice stir to it. Now add fried potatoes and fried eggs. Also add salt for seasoning and alter spices as required. Cover and simmer for 5 mins. Switch off the gas. Garnish with curry leaves and serve hot with rice.
I have used curry leaves its optional if you wish you could use.

Add red chili powder if need more spice. Also you could add more garam masala powder if require more hot and flavor.

Ensure the onions are fried nicely before grinding them for a better flavored curry.
