Egg Curry defies the rule that eggs are only for breakfast. When boiled eggs are tossed in aromatic spiced curry it makes an incredible lunch or dinner option. All this while I was making egg curry without following any particular way.. simply make curry and throw in boiled eggs. I would sometimes cut eggs into half.. the yolk would mix with the curry and if I let the eggs be just like that they seemed bland. They were good but not extra ordinary. I knew there has to be a better way at making this curry amazing.


And as I was on the quest of finding a perfect recipe I spoke to a friend who guided me and asked to try a particular recipe of her’s. Ohhh Lord! the egg curry was beyond perfection. Apart from the method I followed the most scintillating part of the recipe was the curry. I used Eastern Egg Curry Masala which defined the gravy and made it finger licking. 

Directions:
1. Boil eggs and peel their skin off. Make a plus intersection on the tip of the egg using a sharp knife. The cut should be gentle and should only open the top. Keep aside.

3. Also add peppercorns and dried coriander seeds. Toss them on medium low flame for a few minutes till the aroma starts coming. Put the flame off.

7. Add the boiled eggs to the ghee and toss them gently on a low flame that they are evenly coated with ghee mixture and turn slight golden from all sides. We are basically shallow frying them so that their crust gets a little crunchy.

20. At this stage add water.

21. Cover with a lid and let it cook and reduce on medium low flame for good seven to ten minutes. Keep checking in between as to how much curry you will like.

22. My husband likes the gravy thick so it took me around 10 minutes to get this. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

23. Serve hot with Roti or even Naan or Kulcha .
