Eggs in brown gravy

I love eggs, in any form! Here’s an egg gravy recipe which I make from my instincts, and its loved by both of us!!
Ingredients (serves 2)
4 boiled eggs (peeled and cut in half)
3 onions chopped (medium size)
2 to 3 tbspn. Beaten curd
Handful of fresh curry leaves
Oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, turmeric powder for tempering
2 red dried chillies
Salt to taste
Heat oil in pan, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, once they crackle, add turmeric powder, curry leaves, dried red chilles, mix well, then add chopped onions, and fry till till nice dark brown. Switch off the flame and let it cool. Later, grind it well till a coarse paste is formed. Now, keep the same ground paste on flame again, add beaten curd, salt and red chilli powder, mix well and add boiled eggs, let it cook for half a minute.
Relish it with hot chapatis or steaming rice!

The Saucy Pasta Quiche

Hey All, i have a guest blogger here, a friend, who keeps on giving me diet tips and a lot of Recipes, so I asked her to be a guest blogger for this post!! You can visit her blog at
Here goes her guest post!! I bet you will love this yummy recipe!! :P
Hi Aditi,
First of all let me thank u for giving me the honour of being your guest Blogger :P
I wouldn’t want to disappoint u and your fans in any ways hence giving away my most favorite recipe
The Saucy Pasta Quiche
1. Prepare the pasta as mentioned by Aditi in her previous post, or you may make the pasta in plain simple tomato pulp and garlic sauce, avoiding the cheese. The texture of the Pasta shouldn’t be too watery for this dish.
2. Grease well an omelet pan and spread the pasta over it. The layer should not be too thick. You can keep the excess pasta if any for the second round.
3. Beat 4 egg whites and 1 yellow and pour it over and keep covered on a low-med flame till the side on the flame gets cooked
4. Garnish the upper liquid portion with boiled veggies (broccoli, capsimcum, etc.)
5. Cover the pan.
6. Once its brown, set the pan aside without flame so that the upper portion gets cooked on its own if required keep the flame on for some more time. But do not turn the omelet upside down.
Use a pizza cutter and enjoy this delicacy !!!
Suggested garnishing: Garlic Bread
