Motte Saru

Motte means EGG and Saru means Rasam in Kannada :)   So,this recipe is all about EGGS in a rasam ;) White Rice and Motte Saru for a Brunch on Sunday would be just fab.......

You can replace EGGS with chicken, this combination also works awesome :) :) :) :)

Serves 2 to 3

Category - Brunch / lunch

Boiled EGGS - 4Nos.      [ OR Chicken - 250 to 300g]
Cloves - 3Nos.

Add all the ingredients, (except the EGGS, onions, oil and mustard seeds) blend into a smooth paste.

In a Wok, heat 1tsp oil and add a pinch of turmeric then add in the EGGS.... Fry for a min and keep aside. (Fry the marinated chicken till 1/2 tender.)

In the same Wok, add the remaining oil and mustard seeds allow it to splutter. Now add the onions fry till transparent. To this add the ground paste and fry for 8 mins. Later, add 1/4th cup of water and boil for 5 mins then add the EGGS. After few mins add some more water (till your desired consistency of rasam) and simmer for few more mins.......... N the MOTTE SARU is ready to go with White rice :)

NOTE - Use a Pressure cooker instead of a Wok if using chicken. Marinate the chicken for 30 mins using 1/3rd of the ground paste. follow the same process as of the EGGS. After adding Chicken and enough water, close the lid and wait for 3 to 4 whistles......................
