  3. When the onion turns brownish, add ginger garlic paste, saute for a minute then mix the red paste, allow it to be well cooked on a medium flame.
  4. When the red masala is almost cooked and oil starts to separate, add the cumin, coriander powder and mix well.
  5. Now add 1 cup water, adjust the seasoning and let it come to a boil.
  6. When the gravy comes to your desired consistency, carefully shift the poached egg into it, Stir very lightly and cook for another minute.

My Tip:

We need to be extra careful while adding the poached egg, otherwise the delicate yellow portion may break and get scattered.
