Gavrani Egg Curry

The festival of Diwali is over. All sweets have been eaten, Family and friends are gone, all the lights are being packed and kept properly for next year.

After having a great Diwali with lots of sweets , its time for some Chatpata , spicy food.

Not a lot of stuff, but that one tasty dish , that’ll make your meal awesome. So we decided to make a gavrani style egg curry. Recipe courtesy my MIL. This gravy was a speciality in remote parts of Maharashtra , where tomatoes weren’t easily available. So the recipe has onion based gravy, with lots of spices.

To prepare the masala for the gravy a manual instrument called pata varvanta( made of heavy stone ) was used.  these days we can easily do it with a mixer grinder. But elders  say  that the taste that you get with pata varvanta, used to be extraordinary . You should definitely give this recipe a try, when you are in the mood for something different and spicy!

Here’s the recipe!
