Anda Palak :Boiled Eggs in Spinach Gravy

I had few bunches of Palak sitting in my fridge for long, perhaps waiting for panner ;-) but since I was cleaning my fridge before my short trip I was no mood to buy paneer specially for Palak Paneer. So this idea came to my rescue, added eggs instead of paneer here. And the result was simply fantastic ! Don't believe me , huh ! 
Try it...

2 bunches Palak /Spinach
2 tsp Olive oil
3-4 Green chillies
Pinch of Sugar

For Gravy:
2 small Onions 
2 Tomatoes
2 tsp ginger-Garlic paste
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Garam Masala (dry roast 3 Cardamoms, 3 Cloves, 1 1/2 stick Cinnamon) and make powder of it 
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
White oil
1/4 cup Water
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Cream for richness (optional)

4 Eggs
Some Salt and Red chilly powder
2 tsp Gram flour
2 tsp Water

First boil eggs in enough water for 10 minutes. Then remove the shells and cut them lenghtwise into equal halves. Make a paste of besan (gram flour), salt, red chilly powder and water. Coat well the egg halves and fry them in hot oil till light golden. Keep aside. 

Clean and wash spinach leaves in a large container to remove the dirt thoroughly. In a pan add 2 tsp Olive oil and fry till it reduces in volume. Presence of water in the leaves will make it shrink. Remove and place it on a plate, let this cool. Add palak, sugar in ginder to make a smooth paste. Keep aside.
Now take the pan in which you had fried eggs, add some more oil and heat on low flame. Add chopped onions and saute until they turn translucent. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for another 2-3 minutes.

Add turmeric and coriander powder and give it a quick stir fry. Add tomatoes and fry till oil separates. Add pureed spinach and mix well. Sprinkle the garam masala and adjust salt level. Add fried eggs to the gravy, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and once it reaches room temperature you may add 4-5 lemon drops if you want. You can add cream if you want the creaminess in the gravy. This delicious egg palak is ready to devour with plain rice.
