Anda masala (Egg gravy) is one dish popular at home with parathas or rotis ideal on a cold day. And that's how it came up from my kitchen. In my quest to make that perticular anda masala which I devoured into occasionally on cold lunch breaks, at office delivered from a small south Indian cafeteria. After several trial and errors, the buck stops here and since then it has been a regular dish back home on any given lazy cold day.  Like I always say and believe, every person and every place offers something to learn..... and experience is the lesson learnt. Life is like a huge masterpiece of art in a puzzle board form. So, go pick those pieces up....long way to go.....

Here is a short Pictorial guide.

1. In a pan dry roast red chillies, cumin, fennel and cardamom till aromatic. Allow to cool, put these roasted ingredients along with other ingredients mentioned under "Grind together" in a blender along with little water and grind to a smooth paste. Keep aside.
