Egg Balchao/Egg Cake - Goan Recipe


First of all many thanks to my friend Shilpa, for introducing me to this recipe. This recipe Egg Balchao or Egg Cake, is a Goan Recipe (and ofcourse she is from Goa, she told me 2 versions. First version of the recipe I give here). I do not have that much liking to the eggs, thats why in cakes or any other baking dishes too, i prefer, eggless mostly. But after having tasted this recipe, I have become fan to this and used to prepare whenever I get a chance and each time everyone in my family likes it....


Here we go for the recipe....

Ingredients

  • Eggs - 4 or 5
  • Onion - 1 big (chop finely)
  • Tomato - 1 big (cut into fine pieces)
  • Green Chillies - 2 (cut finely)
  • Ginger - garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 2 pinch
  • Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
  • White pepper - 1/4 tsp
  • Chat Masala - as per the wish (I used 4 to 5 pinch)
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Coriander leaves - few
  • Oil - 1 tsp





Method

  • In a flat bottomed pan (better if non stick), add 1 tsp oil.
  • When oil is hot, add the onion and saute till it becomes translucent.
  • Add the tomato, ginger - garlic paste and green chillies, curry leaves and saute well till, the tomato becomes soft.
  • Now add the chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder and salt.




  • Smash the tomatoes and let it cook for 2 to 3 min.
  • Add the garam masala and mix well.
  • Take care that it is not sticking to the bottom.
  • It should not be too thick or too watery. If the tomato paste becomes thick, sprikle little water and mix well.
  • By this time, the oil starts to come out.
  • Now break and add the eggs into the mixture one by one slowly.
  • Now sprinkle, the pepper powder, chilli powder, chat masala, little salt and coriander leaves.






  • Cover with a lid and wait for 3 to 5 min.
  • Now open the lid and try to shake the pan a bit, and if the egg not shaking, then Egg Balchao is done.
  • If it is little bit shaking also, cover the lid again and cook for another 2 min.
  • The harder part of the upper egg part and the juicy bottom part of the Egg cake would taste fabulous.
  • Taste great when Egg Balchao is hot.







Note:
You can use crushed black pepper also, as per your taste
