But my grandma use to make this at times, when she cooks. She happens to cook rarely, but the flavor and the taste of the dish would be great. It goes out well with steamed rice but I have accompained this with Cauliflower rice. Let us move on to the recipe…

  • Take maida, 1 tbsp of cornflour, 1 tsp of vinegar, 2 tsp of soy sauce, 1 tsp of pepper powder, ½ tsp of vinegar and salt in a bowl. Mix them with water to a thick paste (so that it would coat the egg).
  • Heat cooking oil in a kadai. Dip the eggs gently in the batter (be sure the egg white and yolk should not be separated).

Serve hot after 5 to 10 mins. I have accompanied this with Prawn and green peas  pulav and tomato sauce. This gravy goes out well with any variety of fried rice.

Note:

  1. Eggs should be hard boiled so that it can be cut properly into small pieces.
  2. Be careful when dipping the egg in the batter, the yolk should not be separated.
  3. Turn off the flame and put the fried eggs in the gravy, else the egg would be separated from the coated batter.
  4. Do not stir hardly after putting the fried eggs in the gravy, just give a gentle stir otherwise the egg would break.
