Egg Curry

Whenever I feel lazy to prepare something into the lunch box, I easily choose egg curry.  This is the easiest of any non-veg curries and this easily fits into the lunch box with any Indian bread like chapathi, roti, appam etc.


Egg                                     --   2
Finely Chopped Onions      --    3 big onions
Ginger Garlic Paste             --    1 tsp
Green chillies                      --    3 -4
Tomato                              --    1 medium sized
Turmeric powder                --    ½ tsp
Chilly powder                     --    2 -3 tbsp
Coriander powder              --    1 tbsp
Garam Masala                    --    1 tsp
Mustard seeds                    --   ½ tsp
Red chillies                         --   2
Curry leaves                       --   a spring
Coconut milk                      --   1 cup (optional)
Oil                                     --    2 tbsp
Salt                                    --    to taste

Preparation of Egg Curry:

Add oil into a pan and fry the onions, green chillies and ginger garlic paste. Add tomatoes once the onions are translucent.

Egg Curry 2          Egg Curry 4
Add the turmeric powder, chilly powder, garam masala and coriander powder. Fry until the raw masala smell is gone. Add required amount of water/coconut milk and let it boil.

Now add the eggs. You can either boil the egg and cut into halves or directly add them into the curry and scramble it within the curry. I prepare both the ways depending on the time and liking.

Garnish the curry with fried mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves.
