  • I have used the pressure cooker to speedup the process, but you can cook it in the kadai itself or use the pressure cooker in the starting itself.
  • Instead of using cumin seed, you can use 1/2 tsp of cumin powder.
  • Adding sugar helps to balance the sourness & hotness in the masala.
  • Switch off the flame immediately after adding the eggs, otherwise the eggs will be over cooked.
