Palak Anda or Egg in Spinach Gravy

From yesterday it is snowing heavily everything became white and too cold also. Can’t go out so better to have good food at home and watch some good movies. I have some spinach left in my fridge,so wanted to cook something with our favorite spinach.

How about some egg in spinach gravy. Since long back I planned to cook something like that but any how didn't happen before. This one is also little similar to Palak  Paneer. But with egg the taste becomes better. Made some veg polao with this it’s really a great combo. The cooking method is really very easy and with egg and spinach the dish becomes very healthy for kids also.

Preparation time: 10 mints.
Cooking time: 30 mints.
Serve for :2 people.
1.Eggs: 4.
2.One bunch of spinach.
3.One medium size chopped onion.
4.One small chopped tomato. And one table spoon tomato puree.
5.Half cup chopped coriander.
6.One table spoon ginger garlic paste.
7.Turmeric Powder, Coriander Powder, Cumin Powder, Red Chili Powder (half tea spoon of each item).
8.A pinch of garam masala powder.

9.Whole garam Masala(2 clove, 2 cardamom, one bay leave, a small piece of cinnamon stick).
10.Salt and sugar as per taste.
11.One table spoon fresh cream.
12.Sunflower oil for cooking, One tea spoon butter.


Cut and boiled the spinach, after it cool down make a smooth paste with this and keep aside.

Now marinate the egg pieces with a pinch of turmeric powder and salt but before that cut some slashes from top to bottom with a sharp knife (cut should be very less).

Now fry the eggs in little oil till they golden brown.

Put some oil in a vessel and add whole garam Masala after few seconds add the chopped onions and tomatoes. Fry till the onions are transparent.

Now add the ginger garlic paste along with all spices powder except garam masala powder with some salt and sugar cook till the oil separate.

Now add the tomato puree and cook for few mints. Finally add the spinach paste and cook with a lid for 5 to 8 mints in low flame.

Now remove the lid and add some warm water and add the chopped coriander and the fried egg pieces and again cook with a lid for 3 to 4 mints.

Remove the lid and add the garam masala powder and the butter with some cream. Switch off the gas.

Served hot with Polao or Paratha.
