Indian Food

So my friend R came over (yesterday?) and we cooked cheap-ass Indian food. Yum!

What we made was kinda a curried egg dish over rice. Here's how it was made:

Hardboil eggs.

Peel eggs, and slice into egg white at least 3-4 times with a sharp knife.

Preheat wok, and fry hardboiled eggs with a little bit of oil. After they're nice and crispy brown, put them aside.

Slice potatoes, onion and mince ginger. Rub potatoes and onion in a smidge of turmeric and salt.

Fry sliced potatoes. As potatoes get close to done, throw in onion, and ginger.

Add spices (we used paprika, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper). Add a bit of liquid to make a sauce. Throw in some chopped tomatoes and the hardboiled/fried eggs.

Let cook down a bit (until it makes a proper sauce), and serve over rice.


EDIT: It was the eggs and the potatoes, not the potatoes and the onions that got turmeric and salt treatment.

  1. It *was* delicious, wasn't it? Yum yum!

    Although, for future ref, the potatoes and *eggs* get rubbed with salt and turmeric and fried, not the onions.

    Still, can't wait to be back in the ole mother country, where people will be cooking FOR me, 24/7 ;-)
