Egg Curry – Perfect boiled eggs simmered in a robust masala curry. Eggs are an important part of our diet and this recipe is simple & bursting with flavours. Egg curry is best enjoyed with a parantha. #EggCurry 

Different regions of India have their own versions of egg curry. This recipe is North Indian in origin. The gravy for egg curry can be made ahead of time and frozen. Then when you are ready to eat it, simply boil the eggs, thaw and heat the gravy, add the eggs and you’re good to go. Egg curry is a family favourite 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.

Place 4 eggs in a deep vessel and cover it with water. Turn on the gas and bring it to a boil, lower the heat to medium to gently boil the eggs for 10 mins.

Remove the yolks, mash them and add it to the masala. Roughly chop up the whites and keep aside. Stir for a minute and then add 2 ½cups of water. Let it come to a boil and then let it simmer. Add salt.


Now in a separate pan heat 2 tbsp of oil and swirl the pan. Add the remaining 2 eggs and toss them gently to lightly brown them on all sides.
