Anda Ghotala Ingredients
Eggs – I just can’t imagine my pantry without eggs and potatoes. Eggs contain several vitamins and minerals that are essential parts of a healthful diet. So, Sunday ho ya Monday, roz kho anday. If you are concerned over cholesterol, then let me tell you, eating is moderation is the key to balance taste and health.
As we will be combining, three recipes to make anda ghotala, we may at least need 3 eggs. One for making burji, one boiled egg and one for making fried egg.
Onions – We need onions for preparing burji. Burji is Indian style egg scramble with lots of onion, tomatoes and green chillies.
Tomatoes – Adds tangy taste and flavour to the recipe.
Green Chillies – Adds flavour, heat and spice.
Ginger-Garlic Paste – Balances the flavours and adds aroma.
Pav Bhaji Masala – Brings an unique flavour, aroma and taste in the recipe.
Other Ingredients – Red chili powder, Turmeric powder, Salt and Butter.
Easy Anda Ghotala Recipe
Add enough water to a pot and then slowly drop in eggs. Boil them for 10-15 minutes on medium flame. Drain the water and leave them to come down to room temperature. In the meantime, start making burji.
For burji, first beat eggs in a bowl and set aside. Add oil to a pan and when it heats up add cumin seeds. When these start to splutter, add finely chopped onion and cook on low flame, till onions turn translucent. Now to this add chopped tomatoes and green chillies. Sauté, till tomatoes turn soft. To this add ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and fry for a minute. Now add beaten eggs. Cover and cook for five minutes.
Now scramble the eggs using a spatula. To this add grated boiled eggs and combine well. Let this cook for a minute and then add coriander leaves and pav bhaji masala powder. Check for salt and turn off the flame. Remove this in a serving bowl.
On a pan, add oil and when it is warm, crack open the egg. Fry till edges turn crisp and yolk is cooked. I don’t like runny yolk. But, if you like runny yolk, then remove the egg from pan before the yolk starts cooking.
Place this fried egg on top of the egg burji masala and serve hot with butter slashed pav or bread slices or roti.
Tips & Variations:
To get perfect hard boiled eggs, always remember to use eggs which are at room temperature.
When boiling eggs, always remember to fill the pot till eggs are completely submerged.
If you are worried about high-protein, then you can easily skip yolk and make this recipe. You can even remove yolk from boiled eggs, before grating or cutting them.
The original street style anda ghotala is prepared with butter. You can replace butter with any vegetable oil. I prefer using sunflower oil.
Read the recipe carefully, for more tips on boiling perfect hard boiled eggs.
If pav bhaji masala is not available, then you can add roasted cumin powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder in combination.
