Take a thick bottomed Dabba or aluminium tin
Smear and spread some ghee on the inside of the tin
Line the inner walls of the Dabba or tin box with aluminium foil or parchment paper leaving extra foil to cover the dish well up from the top

Drizzle and spread some ghee along with the inner tin
Beat one egg and spread it onto the bottom of the tin

Now add the meat mixture and spread it along to form a layer above the beaten egg
Line the meat layer with the next layer of sliced boiled egg and sliced tomatoes

Now beat the 2 remaining eggs and spread them on top of the layer of chopped tomatoes

In the end, add the hot ghee from over the top and seal the Dabba with the rest of the aluminium foil
Place the Dabba in the oven and leave it to vajr at 200-degree centigrade for 15 minutes

At the end of baking, turn the Dabba upside down onto a plate and remove the extra aluminium foil
