4 medium sized finely sliced onions 1 can coconut milk 4 Tbs. ghee 2 Tbs.

Heat ghee in the cooking vessel.Add cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. Add onions and fry until light brown. Add turmeric, chili powder, sugar,garam masala,Dhania powder,Jeera powder,salt,ginger,garlic paste and tomato puree. Saute it till the masala looks rich. Then simply pour coconut milk in slowly and stir for 4-5 minutes until the gravy thickens. (you may add some water to make it lighter. Boil a dozen eggs in another pan and then let it cool down and shell them off. Cut the eggs in half and place them gently in the above curry made. Sprinkle some cilantro leaves. Switch off gas and keep covered for 10 minutes. It's absolutely delicious:-) My Persian friends went to order this in Bombay Bistro and couldn't find it on the menu. I ofcourse told them that this dish is my own and doubt any restaurants still have it on the menu. It was also the best compliment I received:-) Thankyou and have a great meal.
