Egg curry

Doing up this post wasn’t easy as my laptop screen is half dead. Only half the screen is working! Grrr.. it was such a trouble trying to copy all my work and pictures to an external hard disk. I will have to share my hubby’s laptop for a few days I guess till I fix mine. Actually not sharing, but I am just taking it 😉

Moving to the recipe, here is a curry where egg is cooked in a thick creamy sauce. Every bite was savored. What’s more, It’s quick, easy and perfect with Indian flat bread or rice. 

You need –

  • Eggs – 4, boiled.
  • Onion – 1 medium, finely chopped
  • Garlic and ginger paste – 2 teaspoons
  • Coriander powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Red chili powder – 1 teaspoon or to taste 
  • Cumin powder – ½ teaspoon 
  • Turmeric powder – ½ teaspoon 
  • Tomato – 1 large, finely chopped
  • Fresh cream – 150 mls
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh chopped coriander, to garnish
  • Oil – 1 tablespoon

How to –

Heat oil in a pan, add the chopped onions and cook till translucent. Add the ginger-garlic paste and continue to cook till the raw smell is gone.

Tip in the powders, salt and fry till the oil start to separate. Now add in the chopped tomatoes and cook till mushy. Add about 2 tablespoon of water and mix well. Cook for about a minute.

Add the cream and bring to a gentle simmer. This is a thick gravy but add hot water to adjust the gravy to your desired consistency. Add the boiled eggs and allow to simmer gently for a couple of minutes. Turn off the heat.

Garish with fresh coriander and serve hot with Roti or Rice.

  1. I like you short and punch intro. Sometimes I can't figure out what to write for the intro and that too, is time consuming.

    I always store eggs at home, its for emergency and also we just love eggs too much. This egg curry is much loved for the spicy punch and the creamy thick outcome. I shall use coconut milk instead of cream.
