Eggs are expensive in India and respected as a featured item rather than a recipe ingredient as is so often the case here. This recipe for hard cooked eggs is excellent as a side to Indian dishes or as a made ahead breakfast needing only a little warming up.

PREP
  1. Heat EGGS in water to cover until the water boils, then turn off the heat and set aside until cool. Peel. Cut 6 lengthwise slashes in each egg, through to the yolk but far enough from the ends so the egg holds together well.
  2. Cut ONION in quarters lengthwise then slice thin.
  3. Chop GARLIC and GINGER fine, mix,
  4. Chop TOMATO small, mix with TURMERIC, CHILI POWDER and SALT.
  5. Grind CORIANDER and add to tomato mix.
RUN
  1. Select a covered sauté pan large enough to hold all your eggs in a single layer with room to move them around. Heat OIL and fry Onions stirring until light golden, then stir in Garlic Mix and continue frying until garlic shows color.
  2. Stir in Tomato Mix and fry stirring until tomatoes are softened, then stir in EGGS until well coated. Add 1/2 cup WATER, cover and simmer 10 minutes stirring occasionally and adjusting water as needed for the sauce thickens you want.
