Frozen Green peas - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1, chopped

Turmeric - a pinch
Red chili powder - 1/4 tsp
Whole garam masala - grind coarsely in a pestle

Heat oil in a pan. Apply a little turmeric, red chilli powder, salt to the boiled eggs and fry them gently till they are slightly brown. Keep aside.

In the same oil, fry the cubed potatoes similarly till they are almost cooked. Remove the potatoes.

Add some more oil to the pan. Put the coarsely ground garam masala and stir for a few seconds. Add a little sugar and allow it to caramelise.

Then add the chopped onions and salt and fry till translucent. Add the spices, grated ginger, green peas and chopped tomato and cook till the oil oozes out of the masala.

Add the fried eggs, frozen green peas and potato and toss everything together. Cook for a few minutes more. Sprinkle a little garam masala and serve.
