About This Recipe

“A nice change of pace, and convenient on those days that I might have forgotten to thaw out the meat that I had planned to cook (again!). Something that my vegetarian stepdaughter will eat and yet at the same time, my husband doesn’t feel like he’s being punished for her dietary habits!”


    • 8 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and quartered
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 2 onions, chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced

    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
    • 1 (14 ounce) cans chopped tomatoes, drained
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 2 teaspoons garam masala


  1. In a small bowl or coffee cup, mix the coriander, turmeric, chilipowder, cumin and salt.
