Kodi Guddu Masala ~ Boiled Eggs in Gravy ~ Andhra Style

Today is Kanuma festival ( 2015) , is the only festival where we are allowed to cook or eat any meat dishes. As I don't have any chicken at home today, I have made this Egg Masala Curry. This is very simple masala curry cooked in Andhra Style by using Poppyseed, Coconut and CashewNut Masala. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Boiled Eggs - 4
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch
Clove - 2
Star Anice - 1
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1/2 medium
Tomato - 2
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp

Grind Masala:
Poppy Seeds (Kush Kush) - 1 Tbsp
Cashew Nuts - 5
Coconut Powder - 2 Tbsp
Cilantro - 1 Tbsp

Preparatory Steps:
  • Heat the non-stick pan and add 1 tsp oil. Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder. Make slight slits to Boiled Eggs with knife. Add Eggs to the pan and coat with oil fry for 2 min. 
  • Make the Tomato Puree by grinding the tomato pieces into smooth paste.
  • Soak Poppyseeds in the warm water for 15 minutes ( this makes them become soft which helps in grinding to get smooth paste)
  • Grind the ingredients under Grind Masala section and grind them to smooth paste. 

  1. In the same pan add 1 Tbsp oil. Once the oil is hot add masala spices in the order Cinnamon, Clove, Star Anice and Mustard Seeds. Once the mustard seeds splutter add chopped onion. saute for 2 min. 
  2. Add ginger garlic paste to the onions saute until the oil separates from the onion mixture. Add salt and turmeric powder to the onion mix and saute for 2 min. 
  3. Now add tomato puree to the pan and mix it with onions. mix it until it comes together. Add red chili powder and coriander powder. Mix everything well. Close the lid and simmer for 2 min.
  4. Add the ground masala to the pan and mix it well. Add some water as needed to make it more gravy. Close the lid and cook for 5 min. 
  5. Add boiled eggs to the gravy and simmer for 5 min. Finally add garam masala and mix well. Taste and adjust all the seasonings and switch off the stove, transfer to serving bowl, garnish with Cilantro. 

Serve Warm with Soft Roti or White Rice!
