Add diluted spice mix. Stir well on a low heat until the raw smell goes and water dries up (approximately 3 minute on a low heat).

Add 150 ml (less than 1 cup water. Gravy won’t be tasty, if it is too thin in consistency) and salt to taste.

 Mix all the ingredients well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium  heat for 8 – 10 minutes until the gravy boils well.

When the gravy boils nicely, add cashew nut – onion paste.  Stir well. Adjust salt if required. Cover again and cook on a low heat for another 8 minutes. Gravy is ready now.

In a serving bowl, arrange boiled egg and pour the gravy over it. Consume this curry after half an hour. Then it will absorb all the flavours. Serve with pulao / rotis …
