Kodiguddu Pulusu ~ Boiled Egg Stew

When I don't have any vegetables at hand this is the first recipe that comes to my mind. As I will never run out of Onions in my pantry and my fridge is always loaded with Eggs, this recipe can happen with no doubt in my kitchen. This is so simple to make and can be made as a special dish on the menu. In this recipe, Onions are cooked with Tamarind Paste and simmered with spices, finally boiled eggs will take a bath in that gravy covered with all the spices and a final sweet touch with jaggery will make it complete. This tastes wonderful when served with white rice or jeera rice Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Check out here on How to get Soft Boiled Eggs...!

Boiled Eggs -  4
Onion - 1 large ( or 1 cup chopped onions)
Tamarind - 1 Tbsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Jaggery - 1 Tbsp
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch stick
Clove - 2
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Water - 1/2 cup

Preparatory Steps:

  • Take Tamarind in a medium bowl along with 2 Tbsp water and microwave it for 1 min. Let it cool and squeeze tamarind to get the tamarind paste and remove the pulp. 


  1. Heat Oil in the non-stick kadai. Add cumin seeds, cardamom, and clove. As they start spluttering add finely chopped onions. Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Let the onions saute for 2 min. 
  2. Add Tamarind paste to pot, mix it well onions. Add remaining salt and red chili powder, mix it in and add some water to make it like stew. Close the lid and simmer for 5 to 6 min. 
  3. Remove the lid and add jaggery to kadai. Let it simmer for 2 min until all the jaggery is melts in. 
  4. Make slight slits to Boiled Eggs and add them to the stew in Kadai. Close the lid and simmer for another 5 min, so that all the spices will sink into Boiled Eggs. After 5 min, remove the lid, taste and adjust all the seasonings and finally add some cilantro and switch off the stove.

Serve immediately with White Rice or Jeera Rice to get the best flavor out of it.
