If you have been following my posts then you'll have read the one where i explain my awe for spice sections of supermarkets, and the one i recently visited. I purchased a spice mixture on that trip named Egg Roast Masala, and today i decided to give it a try.
The dish itself is deliciously hot and sweet, but once mixed with white rice it becomes mild and needs salt!
It was delicious...I have never tried to eat boiled eggs on rice before. The sauce is quick and easy to make, not alot of ingredients if you have the "masala" already mixed, not expensive to buy the products needed if you don't, and has a very distinct aroma once cooked...My whole house filled with the smell of boiled eggs(i will not say what that smells like!) but then, once i made the sauce, its aroma overpowered everything else. I think the whole building i live in may have been drooling, i would be! It smelled like a tropical coconut spice shop...
The recipe below is my own version for this dish. I have modified another recipe to suit my taste.
***the reason for so many pictures is because my husband saw my website and told me that maybe people would like to see more photos of the process of cooking a dish so they know their doing it right.. ha ha... so hence the photos above!
