  • Now in a pan heat a tsp of oil and fry the hard boiled eggs for couple of minutes.Sprinkle a pinch of salt,turmeric powder and red chilly powder.Mix it well and it coats on each egg well.Keep it on a flame for another minute,remove it and transfer to a plate.
  • Now in the same pan heat the remaining oil and do the tempering with the given ingredients.Add the sliced onion,green chilly and curry leaves.Saute it with a pinch of salt till transparent.Add in the ginger&garlic paste,fry it until raw smell disappears.Add in half of the  ground fennel and pepper powder and spice powders.Fry in the oil for a minute.

  • While frying the fennel and pepper,keep the flame in medium.

  • The amount of green chillies and the black pepper only gives the spiciness to the curry,so adjust accordingly.I added around 1/4 tsp of red chilly powder along with the spice powders.
