  • Once the onions are done, add salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and stir, then add little water to avoid burning of the masala.

  • Lastly, add finely chopped coriander to the Onion Egg curry.
  • Serve with rotis or parathas.


Notes:  If one wishes to replace red chilli powder with only green chillies then it can be done. One can add as many beaten eggs as possible. The taste of khageena is tasty if the onions are turned slightly brown. But if one wishes to keep the onions normally cooked then that too brings out good taste.Mint leaves can also be added to enhance the flavor of the curry.
