....And I'm back!!! :) Life in Chennai and A Recipe for Egg Curry!

Hi Guys!


How have you all been?? Long time, eh?? Well, I'm in India, trying to set up my cozy li'l flat, its so much fun, trust me! Well, its more homey now, after all, a Woman makes a House a Home! ;)


So far, I'm loving Chennai (Madras)...Its so much better than what I had expected! The people here are so warm and friendly! :) The only thing I hate about this place is the water! It has ruined my hair :( My hair has never looked so bad before! Luckily for me, I got a jar of Schwarzkopf Conditioner from Saudi Arabia, I managed to fish it out from my bags and lets see, I'm hoping for a  miracle here! ;)


So, let me tell you guys a li'l about the flat we've rented. Well, since we're gonna stay here for just about 6 months, my husband insisted on getting a small one. Its tiny but real cozy, it has a living room, a bedroom, a Kitchen, a Utility Room and a Bathroom. But I am not very fond of the landlord, he's strictly prohibited us from re-painting the walls, drilling holes on walls to put shelves or even nails, changing the light fittings etc. I mean what am I left with now? Decorating this place is gonna be such a tough task! :(


Anyways, you can always tell that a woman lives in a house when you see:
1) A Clean Kitchen Top :p

2) A Well Made Bed





3) Cosmetics :)



4) And Fresh Veggies!



Lols...Anyways, I made an Egg Curry-Indian Style and surprisingly, it was really good! :) I wanna share the recipe with you all today.

Egg Curry-Indian Style

Ingredients-

Boiled Eggs - 3 or 4

For the Gravy:

Tomatoes, Ground or Very Finely Chopped - 2
Onions, Sliced - 3
Garam Masala - 1 teaspoon
Ginger Paste - 1 teaspoon
Garlic Paste - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/4th teaspoon
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Green Chillies, Slit - 2
Oil
Salt
Cilantro, for Garnishing

Method:

1) Heat some oil and fry the Sliced Onions till they turn golden brown.

2) Add the Chopped Tomatoes and saute on medium heat for about 5 min.

3) Add the Ginger Paste, Garlic Paste, Garam Masala Powder, Turmeric Powder, Red Chilli Powder and Salt and stir well. Saute for another 5 minutes.

4) Add about a quarter cup of water and stir well, let the gravy cook on medium heat for a few minutes. The raw taste of the spices should fade away. Add some more water if you want the gravy to be of a thinner consistency.

5) Add the Boiled eggs into the gravy. Add the Slit Chillies. Stir well. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 minutes.

6) Garnish with some freshly chopped Cilantro.




Well, that's it for now.

Love you all!

Alia

  4. What a wonderful recipe! I never tried it this way. Next time may be!

    As about water spoiling your hair, I would suggest you use filtered water to shower your hair at least. Conditioners might help though.

    Good luck with your new home !

  8. OMR road in Chennai is one of the awesome property places.People vie for the place and this is an important place in Chennai real estate.Owing to the corporate image of Chennai, housing in Chennai is now a new buzz where flats in Chennai are booming like anything.Especially, at the hip OMR road.
