4 chopped tomato
2 finely chopped onion
4 sliced & slit green chilli
1 inch peeled, sliced ginger
3/4 teaspoon powdered turmeric
3/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
1 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

2. Now add the cinnamon and chopped green chillies. Fry for a minute or two. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes.

4. Add the yoghurt and curry leaves. Stir well and simmer for a minute. Add the eggs and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes over low heat. Stir gently ensuring the eggs stay intact.

If you tried my Christmas joint poached in stout. Do not throw out the liquid left behind. This will make a tasty stock.

Just let it cool and  remove any visible fat.

Use a little of this to poach a couple of eggs. I use my Omega 3 eggs.

We are allowed 2 eggs yolks per week and I like to save mine up for these little delights.

Any remaining stock can be frozen or used in stew etc.
