  7. Add the hard boiled eggs to the gravy and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
  8. Break a raw egg into the gravy. Mix everything together, cover and let it simmer until the gravy becomes thick and the egg is cooked. This induces the egg flavour throughout the gravy.

We are south Indians who love spicy food. Very sorry to hear that you were not able to eat. Next down scale down the spice level according to your taste.
