Egg Pulusu/ Egg in Tamarind Sauce

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Egg Pulusu is one of my fav dishes.. Even though i ma not a big lover off boiled egg. I love this dish.. whenever it is egg curry, my mom used to sit beside me, jus to make sure i am eating all the egg. I used to eat only yellow, n the rest of the egg will be in my sunny's mouth.. I dnt know how he knows, but whenever it is egg curry, he used to take rounds around me. When my mom is nt there, Jus in a blink of eye  he snatches my egg white n leaves from there. God, i miss him so much.. So to avoid this  my mom used to make an omelette for me, so that i can get all nutrients of egg. Poor sunny.. But, he always had his share.. 
Here is the  picture of my darling sunny...

Anyways, coming to our toady's dish..The main ingredient, when it comes to 'Pulusu" is Tamarind, famous for its sweet tangy flavor...  When added along with jaggery or sugar, tamarind gives a very aromatic flavor to the dish...So todays dish of tamarind sauce holds eggs in it..

Onion: 1 big. finely chopped
Tomato: 2 small, cubed
Green Chili: 3-4,  chopped diagonally
