The real taste of Muttai Kozumbu lies in the Gravy. You would be surprised to know that the Gravy for Muttai Kozumbu in the restaurants is generally prepared using leftover gravy, Stock of Chicken and leftover Kheema of chicken . But what I am posting is Pure delight using fresh ingredients. Muttai Kozumbu goes great with steaming Rice, Parottas , Poories and Pulao. So here is lip smacking recipe of Muttai Kozumbu or Egg Curry.

Boiled Eggs 4 nos.
Onion Paste 1 cup
Poppy seed Paste 2 Tbsp. (GhasaGhasa)
Ginger-Garlic paste 3 Tea spoons
Light Roasted Maida 1 spoon
Tomato Puree 1 ladleful
Curd 1 Tea spoon
Salt to taste
Oil for Cooking 1 ladle

Red Chilli Powder 1 spoon
Turmeric Powder 1/4 spoon
Garam Masala powder 1 spoon

Ghee/oil I ladle
Cardamom 5 to 6 nos.
Cinnamon 3 to 4 sticks of 2" size




Take oil in a kadai and when hot, add a pinch of Mustard to check if hot.  When mustard start to crackle, add first onion paste and start turning it till it becomes light pinkish brown and starts leaving oil. Now add ginger garlic paste and briskly turn for two to three minutes. When the raw smell of Garlic goes off, add Tomato puree and fry for further two to three minutes. Add curd at this juncture. And heat for about 1 minute Now add water and let the whole thing simmer for about four to five minutes. Add Poppy seed paste and roasted Maida flour. Stirr briskly .You made mix some water with Maida flour to avoid sticking. If you have any leftover curries or kheemas, you can add at this juncture( but take care about salt). Now add chilli powder, turmeric powder and Garam Masala powder along with salt to taste. Heat for a couple of minutes and see that the gravy is almost Dosai Maavu thick. If you want , you can add a little bit of Lime juice to make the gravy to your taste , otherwise it will be perfact . Now take ghee in a Tempering ladle and heat Cardamom and Cinnamon. When Cardamom gets puffed, pour it over the Gravy. I advice you to shallow fry the boiled eggs in oil all over till a golden tinge shows on surface. Carefully make two pieces of each egg .Now place eggs Pieces  in the gravy .You may choose to place whole boiled and uncut eggs also. and serve hot after one hour. Cook and let me know the result.
