Simple Tomato and Onion Curry topped with Poached/Fried Egg

Simplest things are the best!!  We all go back to what we grew up when we need comfort.  One such recipe for me is this simple onion tomato curry topped with sunny side up egg.  Not many people like the half boiled or cooked egg.  But, it is one of my favourites :)  You can cook the egg fully if that is what you like and serve it with rice or roti...yummy....

  • Onion - One - peeled and chopped roughly
  • Tomato - 2 - chopped into small pieces
  • Green Chilies - 5-6 - Slit or cut thin
  • Olive oil / any other oil of your choice - 1 table spoon
  • Mustard - 1 tea spoon
  • Curry Leaves - 5-8 leaves
  • Cumin/Jeera - 1 tea spoon
  • Turmeric - 1 tea spoon
  • Salt - 1 table spoon (add per taste)
  • water - 1 cup (add more if you like thinner consistency)
  • Cilantro - 2 tablespoons - finely chopped
  • Egg - 3-4 - you can poach it or fry it per your preference

To a pan on medium heat, add Olive oil.  Once the oil heats up, add the mustard seeds.  Let it splutter.  Then add cumin seeds and curry leaves.  Add onion and saute till translucent.  Add Tomatoes and other ingredients except eggs and cilantro.  Let cook closed for 10-15 minutes till the tomatoes are soft and well blended with other ingredients.  Take off heat and top it with poached or fried eggs and cilantro.  You can eat this by itself for breakfast or with rice, roti or nan.
