Set your timer to 10 minutes. After ten minutes, remove pan from stove and replace the water with cold running water. Set aside until the curry is ready.
Heat oil in a pan. Add onions and sauté till a golden brown. Add ginger, garlic, turmeric and cumin powder and continue to sauté for another minute until fragrant. Add the tomatoes,ketchup, salt and red chilly powder. Saute until the tomatoes are really mushy.
Add 1 cup of water and mix. Let it boil and let the gravy reduce to a thick consistency. Stir in-between to avoid sticking to the bottom / splutter.
Peel the eggs and carefully slice each egg into half and place on top of the warm curry base. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
