Now take a hard-bottomed pan, heat oil, and fry the eggs for 3-4 minutes or till the changes to a light golden brown.
In the same pan throw some cumin seeds for tempering.
As they splutter and sizzle add the onion, tomato paste and cook for 2-3 minutes and add turmeric, coriander, cumin and red chili powder and cook for 5-6 minutes or till the gravy becomes dry and the raw smell of the spices goes off.
