Egg Mint Kurma

I cant cook either without coriander leaves or mint leaves,these leaves have their place everytime in my fridge,but this time coz of parties and new year celebrations, those green leaves were sitting quite a long and started showing their sad face, thats y i went for making this quick,delicious at the same time a simple kurma prepared just by roasting all the spices, which i finally prepared as a masala paste along with chopped onions and tomatoes, yep this kurma goes for grounded paste,u doesnt need to sauté or fry the veggies for a long, just grind everything as fine paste and prepare ur kurma easily, if u have picky eaters at home who never eat onions or tomatoes or else either coriander leaves or mint leaves, do try this method of making kurma, u can feed them easily coz they cant throw out anything since everything is well grounded and prepared as this kurma..Instead of meats,i used eggs as i wanted something to serve along with rotis, u can make this similar kurma along with mixed veggies or either with any sort of meats,the choice is urs..

Egg Mint Kurma

It's totally the other way round with me....while I love the flavour and aroma of these leaves, I am often too lazy to use them as a garnish.
