Eggs .... 4 or as needed
Onions ....... 2 tbsps (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves .. 2 tbsps (finely chopped)
Red chilli powder .... 1/2 tsp (add more if you like it spicy)
Turmeric powder .... 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder ...... 1/4 tsp
Garam masala ...... 1/4 tsp
Amchoor powder ... 1/4 tsp
Cheese ................... 2 tbsps (grated)
Salt ..................... to taste
Baking powder .... 1/4 tsp
Gram flour / besan ..... 1 & 1/2 cups
Carom seeds / ajwain .... 1/4 tsp

Boil the eggs.

Peel them.

Cut into halves. Scoop out the yolk and a little of white portion carefully.

Mash the yolks and the egg white that was scooped out.

Add the spice powders, cheese,coriander leaves and salt. Mix well.

Divide the mixture into lemon size portions and fill into the boiled egg whites. Press them well.

In a large bowl make a thick batter with gram flour, baking powder, carom seeds, little red chilli powder and salt. Mix water little by little and whisk it.

Heat oil in a pan for frying. Dip the stuffed egg boats in in and spoon  the batter carefully over them.

Using a spoon pick each egg boat and drop it into the oil carefully.

Fry on medium flame turning them until done. Remove on a paper tissue to drain the excess oil.

Serve hot with chutney / cilli sauce.
