The best Egg & Pea curry I have ever had. My Mother has been making this dish since I was as young as I can remember. Out of all the dishes that my mother makes, I would choose this all the time. Its best served with roti's/chapatti's, but it tastes just as good with white bread that has been slightly toasted or hot pitta bread.

Directions

  1. Use the biggest cooking pan you have.
  2. Place the ingredients into the pan in the order it is shown above in the ingredients list.
  3. Pour the oil into the pan and let the oil heat up slightly.
  4. Then chop the onions into thin chunks (about an inch long) and place into the pan with the oil.
  5. Wait till the onions start to become slightly golden, then chop up fresh garlic and ginger and add 1 teaspoon each in to the pan with the onions, now wait for the onions to become golden brown.
  6. When the onions are golden brown, Place 650 grams of Pea's in with the onions.
  7. Then start adding the salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, Coriander Powder, 2 finely chopped green chillies and mix everything together thoroughly.
  8. After you have mixed everything properly, pour one average tin of tomatoes and stir again.
  9. Wait for the pea's to cook slightly. (You can test them by taking a few out of the pan and squeezing them.).
  10. Then crack open 8 eggs and mix together until eggs are cooked. (if you see any big chunks of cooked egg, break it up with the wooden spoon, should look like scrambled egg).
  11. Once the egg is cooked then add one chopped green pepper to add the slight crunch but dont cook the pepper too long or else it will become to soft.
  12. Finally to add a beautiful fragrance & flavour, sprinkle 3 tablespoons of Freshly chopped coriander and mix. Once you have mixed it, then place the lid on the pan and leave it to cook for 10 minutes on a low heat.
