To make this curry you have to grate the hard boiled eggs. Grated eggs and ground peanut will give your curry a rich creamy texture. Peeling soaked peanut is very easy. Just rub the peanut lightly with your finger tips to peel the red skin. I have ground the cardamom, cinnamon and cloves with onion garlic to make a smooth gravy. You can use these whole spices for tempering or tadka before adding onion ginger garlic paste. But these will come in mouth while eating so better to grind into a smooth paste.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
