Eggs should be beaten thoroughly and steamed for just 12 minutes. If they are steamed too much they become hard and rubbery.

The beaten Eggs can be steamed in a cake tin or a long, deep glass.


The gravy needs to be cooked slowly to get a thick, nice consistency. Then the spices get absorbed into the Gravy. Or it doesn’t taste all that good.

After the gravy thickens, add the Egg cubes, cover and cook for 7-8 minutes. If they are cooked for any longer, the water in the Gravy gets absorbed into Eggs and it will become too thick.

In case the gravy becomes too thick, add some hot water to dilute it.

Poppy Seeds:

The Khus Khus or Poppy Seeds in the gravy add a richness but at some places, Poppy Seeds are not available. Then you could use Cashew Nuts. But, if possible, please use Khus Khus, they have a special taste.
