Huevos Rancheros with Indian Twist
|Vegetable oil||1 Tablespoon|
|Onion||1⁄2 Medium, chopped finely|
|Garlic cloves||2 Medium, mashed|
|Cumin seeds||3⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Chili paste||1⁄2 Teaspoon (Sambal Olek - As Required To Taste)|
|Sea salt||3⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Freshly ground black pepper||3⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Crushed tomatoes||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Ginger knob||1 Inch, julienned|
|Fresh cilantro||1 Tablespoon (For Garnishing)|
1. Heat a medium-sized frying pan (one that would comfortably fry two eggs in it) over medium-high heat.
2. Add vegetable oil, add onions and fry until they start to brown.
3. Add mashed garlic and dried spices, including chili paste.
4. Let fry on medium-high for 1 minute, then add crushed tomatoes.
5. Lower heat to medium and cover loosely (mainly so that the sauce doesn’t splatter all over the place).
6. Let the tomatoes break down and all the flavors blend together – this will take 8-10 minutes (After this point, if you want the sauce to be thicker, you can keep frying it with the cover off).
7. Crack two eggs on top of the tomato sauce, cover and let the eggs cook through from the steam in the pan – about 3 minutes.
8. Serve immediately, sprinkled with salt and black pepper and garnished with cilantro and julienned ginger.
9. Accompany this dish with some warm tortillas or naan!
