If there are sudden guests coming to your place and you don't understand what to cook in less time, then this recipe is perfect for cooking. If you want to eat something spicy, taste and quick then this one comes for a rescue. Today's recipe is Kadai Anda Masala. ( Eggs tossed with Indian Spices in a wok ). It is prepared on a very high flame. There are many ways of preparing this recipe but this one is my take on it. Some may call it a simple egg curry but the process of making it is little different.
In this recipe, I will cook hard-boiled eggs with sliced onions, ginger garlic paste, and Indian spices first and then later when all the spices and onions will be cooked, then I will add chopped tomatoes and oil and fry on a high flame till oil from the spices and tomatoes are separated. It will be a bit spicy dish which can be served with any Indian Bread like roti, paratha naan or steamed rice. You can prepare this dish with chicken eggs, duck eggs or quail egg, the result will be the same.
So here is my recipe:-

Sautee the eggs for 4 - 5 minutes over a high flame or until oil is separated from the masala. ( This dish does not have much gravy, however, if you want some gravy then add ½ cup more water to it.) Check for seasoning. Switch off the flame cover the pan with the lid and let it stand for 5 minutes. Your Kadai Anda Masala is ready.
