Fried Egg Sambal

Discovered this recipe here at Edible Garden.  It is supposed to be a Malaysian dish.  Normally when I am alone, I will not be caught in the kitchen.  I guess the pictures and the description probably did it.  And it seemed to be the simplest egg curry to make.  And tasty/tangy/good to look and good to eat.  Try it.

Eggs - 2
Tomato - 1 medium, finely chopped ( or use paste/purée )
Onion - 1, finely chopped
Garlic - 2pods - finely diced
Tamarind paste - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder - to taste
Coriander /dhania powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Spring onions - for garnish - I did not have this, and used coriander leaves instead.

Break eggs in a bowl. Lightly beat. Blend in some salt and turmeric powder.
Take a wok. Heat oil.  Add beaten egg to form a thickish omellete
Cool, cut into strips.
In the same pan, add a little more oil. Sauté onions and garlic.  Do not burn.
Add the powders and tamarind paste, sauté for a while.
Add the tomatoes.  Till they get slightly mashed.
Add the omelette strips. Gently mix without breaking them.
Garnish and serve.
