Serves: 4 Persons


  • 2 cups Basmati rice
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish


  1. Start by boiling the eggs. Place the eggs in a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Let them boil for about 10 minutes. Then, remove the eggs, cool them, and peel. Cut each egg in half and set aside.
  2. Wash the Basmati rice and soak it in water for 30 minutes. Drain the water and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the cooking oil. Add the cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  4. Add the sliced onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  5. Stir in the ginger-garlic paste and cook for a minute until the raw smell disappears.
  6. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook until they become soft and the oil separates.
  7. Add the turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well.
  8. Add the frozen peas and cook for a few minutes.
  9. Add the yogurt and mix until well combined. Cook for a few more minutes until the oil starts to separate.
  10. In a separate large pot, bring water to boil. Add the soaked rice and cook until it’s 70% done. Drain the water and set the rice aside.
  11. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, layer half of the partially cooked rice, followed by the egg halves and then the masala mixture. Repeat the layers.
  12. Sprinkle garam masala over the top layer.
  13. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the rice to finish cooking.
  14. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
