Egg Curry

Egg Curry

Egg curry ranks high on my list of comfort foods. It is my go-to dish when I want a non-vegetarian meal but don’t have any fish in the house. Since eggs are usually a staple in the pantry, it is also convenient to cook.

Boiled eggs cooked in a spicy onion-tomato gravy. The sweetness from onion and tomatoes blends exotically with the Garam masala and spice powders. The more the onions were, the tastier the dish turns out. A wonderful mix of sweetness and spiciness leaves through the tongue at every spoonful of rice and curry.

Egg is a versatile cooking ingredient. Many people who do not eat meat or chicken, eat eggs. I call it easiest curry and everyone’s favorite. Non-Vegetarian lovers adore it and eggetarian or vegetarians like it too. There are several different styles for making egg curry, different regions of India cook it differently. This recipe is South Indian or say Kerala as origin. Egg curry is a family favorite too, as you can make it as mild as you like or as ‘hot’ as you like by adjusting the spices to suit your needs. Personally, I like it hot!
