  1. Add half teaspoon of turmeric powder and ⅓ tsp of salt to the boiled egg and mix well so that all the eggs are coated well.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a non-stick skillet. Tip in the boiled egg and sauté till the eggs are well-browned outside. Take out from oil and set aside.
  3. Cut the potatoes in thick French-fries shape. Fry the potato till golden brown. Keep aside.
  4. Thinly slice the onions and crush the garlic gloves.
  5. Heat the remaining oil and when hot, temper it with dry red chili and cloves. Add the sugar and keep stirring. [Sugar is mainly added to bring out a bright red color.]
  6. Add the crushed garlic cloves and sliced onions. Sauté till the onions are brown. Add ginger paste now and keep stirring for 5 minutes.
  7. In a small bowl make a smooth paste with the powdered spices. Mix all the spices adding little water and stir to break any lumps.
  8. When the onions are deep brown, add the spice paste and stir on high flame till the oil starts separating from the spice.
  9. Add a splash of water and tip in the fried potatoes and eggs stirring continuously. Add water and salt now and bring to boil. Warm water is preferable which will enhance the taste.
  10. Once the curry comes to boil, lower the heat and cook covered for 5 minutes or till the potatoes are soft.
  11. Uncover and bring to boil on high heat till you get your desired consistency of the gravy and you are done!
  12. Sprinkle a fat pinch of garam masala powder and serve hot with white rice. Enjoy!
