About Ande ka Chaar Recipe

Ande ka chaar - oops not hindiwala chaar. 'Chaaru' or 'Saaru' in south India refers to any tomato based preparation. Okay to make things easy let's call it - 'Omelet Curry'. This dish was introduced to me by my mil who is from Tamil Nadu but settled in Bangalore after her marriage. Omelet curry is made almost every fortnightly in my kitchen. This tangy and mild - spicy dish goes well with both roti and rice. Usually it tastes better if made few hours early, and reheated before serving.

  1. For the Gravy
  2. Make a coarse paste of onion and coriander leaves. Set aside. Remove the peel of tomato and make a fine paste. Set aside.
  3. In a cooker take sufficient oil, once heated add cinnamon, clove and cardamon. Add the onion coriander paste. Fry well till raw smell disappear. Add ginger garlic paste and saute.
  4. Add tomato paste and fry till oil separates. Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, pepper powder, chilly powder and salt. Fry well. Add about 1/2 glass water and cook for 1 to 2 whisle. Reduce to required consistency.

  6. For the Omelet
  7. Chop onions to fine cubes, add fine slices of coriander leaves, green chilly pieces and spices. Mix well.
  8. On a non stick Pan pour one third of the egg mixture and spread evenly.
  9. Once the omelet is slightly cooked fold them from both sides to form rectangular pieces. Cut to desired shape and put them in the gravy. Make sure the gravy is hot enough.
  10. Repeat for the remaining egg mixture.

My Tip:

For the gravy: Once you put the omelets in gravy they soak up little gravy. Adjust gravy consistency accordingly.
