- 3 onions finely chopped
- 2 tsp Cumin seeds
- 6 Red chillies dry
- 2 tbsp Urad dal
- Coriander leaves handful

- Boil the eggs, peel them and keep aside. Heat a shallow pan on medium flame, and dry roast the cumin seeds, red chillies, urad dal and curry leaves for about a minute. Let the mixture cool and then grind it to a fine powder.
- In a wide pan, heat a few teaspoons of oil and add onions. Sauté until golden brown and add the prepared masala powder with salt. Cook the masala for 1-2 minutes. Cut the eggs into halves and add into the pan. Stir gently and simmer on low flame for a few minutes.

Avoid cooking the eggs for more than 2-3 minutes. Overcooking them will make them chewy.
