Let it cool for a few mins and then put them in a blender to make a smooth puree.


Now take another pan and add in the butter.After the butter melts, add in the puree and let it simmer for about 10 mins.The gravy will get reduced.

Now add some more salt, pepper ,chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder , garam masala and keep mixing until the oil gets separated from the mixture.The gravy will be reduced to half.

Now add in the heavy cream and mix mell. Then add some water so that the gravy gets a thick consistency like a soup.Add the eggs into the gravy.

Cover the pot with a lid and let it simmer in low heat for about 10 mins until the eggs are well soaked in the gravy.
