Egg Kurma

Egg Kurma is a big favorite in our house. When I am at a loss for a dish to prepare I always fall back on Egg Kurma. Hurricane Ernesto was downgraded to a tropical storm but it still meant a day and half of rain. Now we need the rain, there has been no rain for the past month and a half that the grass,plants and trees are all turning brown. The slow steady drizzle is what they need. The weather has turned much cooler too. This called for some hot and spicy Egg Kurma.

1. 5 boiled eggs
2. 1/2 Red Onion roughly chopped
3. 5 pods of garlic
4. 1 1/2 inch piece ginger
5. 2 tomatoes
6. 1 1/2 tsp Egg Masala powder
7. Corriander leaves roughly chopped.
8. 1 1/2 Tbsp grated coconut
9. Seasonings cloves, fennel seeds, cinnamon sticks
