Now boil the eggs for 5 on high flame, another 3-5 minutes on low flame. Put off the flame and keep the eggs covered for 10 minutes. Before pealing the shells, cool the eggs completely; If needed give them a ice bath.
  2. 2. For the masala, we are using green chilli and peppercorns, you can just use any one of them.
