  1. Hard boil eggs in a small pot in water. After they are boiled, drain them, let them cool, and remove hard shell. Fry eggs in hot oil until they are a little brown, remove from oil and set aside for later.
  2. In a bowl combine the following spices: pureed onions, ready fried onions, tomatoes, bay leaves, big brown cardamoms, cloves, ginger paste, garlic paste, red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, green peppers, salt, and plain yogurt . Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a pateli or pot, add fenugreek seeds. When fenugreek gets a little red add in all the spices taken out in bowl. Fry spices well by adding a little water at a time (to prevent burning.) Fry well until the tomatoes turn soft and oil starts to separate.
  4. Add potato pieces and eggs. Mix and add a little water for curry. When water comes to a boil, reduce heat and cover pot.
  5. When potatoes are done, turn off heat. Garnish with Garam Masala Powder and coriander/cilantro and serve.
