Egg Cubes In Gravy

Egg Cubes In Gravy

Here comes the point how egg cubes can be ditched as paneer



I had talked about Egg Cubes In my Previous post If u had missed check it out!!
Talking of showing egg as fake paneer and that too without it being smelly is an achievement to me.
When I found about this 1st I really wanted to try myself 1st to see if it really is what it is presented? or another fake? As usual I did some of my homework browsing around and made eggcubes 1st then proceeded with gravy.

Lets see the making of Gravy and below my explanations on how and why does egg cubes respond as fake paneer.

Ingredients Paste from 1 large onion
Tomato - 2 (pureed)
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Turmeric - 1 pinch
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1tsp
Kastoori methi- half tsp
Milk - 2 cups (fullfat)
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Oil - 1tbsp
Salt to taste
Butter - 1tsp or more for flavoring
Egg Cubes



Method:
- Heat oil in pan add ginger garlic paste and saute for a min.
- Add in onion paste and cook till nice aroma start emitting
- In The tomato paste add all the dry spices + kastoori methi with 1 cup milk. mix it well
- When the onion is ready add tomato paste and cook in low flame till masalas are cooked well and oil start oozing out. thats when you know ur gravy sauce base is ready.
- Once the base is ready add other 1 cup milk, little by little and mixing it, otherwise your milk might curdle due to acidic feature of tomatoes, the sauce is ready,
- Add in the Egg Cubes and cook it for little while closing the lid of the pan (say 5-7 mins in medium heat)
- Check for salt and spices.
- At last add butter for gud flavor, garnish with coriander leaves
- Makes a gud side dish for anything.
- Serve it hot with Roti Naan Phulkas or Hot Steaming Rice

Notes:
If egg cubes R not ready, you can try this with paneer pieces too.
You can make this along with boneless chicken too but add chicken along with ginger garlic paste and onions + salt and cook that 1st. then the gravy process.
Add fresh cream for extra richness instead of milk at the last.
Add red color for restaurant style look, but I avoid most of the times when not needed     

Reasons:
When we make egg cubes those cubes taste more like an omlet just with different shape.
But when we further cook it along with gravy These cubes of eggs becomes more firm like paneer.
If u had seen my previous post Egg Cubes I had talked about pores. Now The point is these pores readily absorbs all the flavors of gravy while cooking and make the egg cubes juicy and yummy!!

Impression:
I totally loved my experiment and it was a hit!!
My bro was a little skeptical about the whole thing and dint wanted to eat.
My Mom was absent there to taste.
Comes my dad next - When he was eating he started saying paneer is tasting very gud today!! I was there giggling to myself and said that is eggs, not paneer? I should have framed his expressions then :D He couldnt beleive it was eggs and asked me once again! Are u sure? this is not paneer????

So to tell u my dad is eggs lover and a person like him failed to recognize the difference what egg cubes can create to the gravy and leave its identity joining hands with paneer hehe.

Do try it frnds im sure u wont be disappointed!! Not just this gravy u can add egg cubes to any of ur fav gravy and serve it ur way!! Choice is yours!!

*** Pic Quality is too bad But that dosent affect the taste and our spirit to cook it rite????


Do let me know ur feedbacks if u try!!

Stay tuned

With lots of love from my end
