We will cook until tomatoes become mushy. Add Salt to hasten the softening process and mix well. Reduce the heat and cook covered
  4. We have cooked tomatoes for 5 mins. Uncover and check. Tomatoes must have become soft. Now, we will add all dry spices. Add Turmeric Powder, Red Chili Powder, Coriander Powder, Garam Masala Powder and Salt to taste. Bhunao (cook) the masala paste.
  5. Masala must not become dry. Add water while cooking masala. After 5 mins of cooking, Oil begins to ooze out from sides. Add boiled eggs.
