Egg Curry

About a month back, we were invited to a friend's place for dinner.Our dear friend S had brought her egg curry.This would be the second time i am tasting her egg curry.From that point every weekend i wanted to make that curry, but something or other comes up and i ended up cooking something else.This weekend i was deter mined, so called S up while she was in her daughter's swimming class...:).Through the phone, she told me the recipe.Thanks to her for sharing this recipe.In this recipe, hard boiled eggs are fried and milk is added for extra flavour.According S, instead of milk, if you add the water left after making homemade panner leads to extra flavour. Because of the salmonella scare , i brought home a big can of crushed tomatoes.So some of the previous and upcoming recipes will have crushed tomatoes.You can always subsitute them for fresh tomatoes.


Eggs - 4 (hard boiled)
Onion - 1 (chopped)
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Tomato - 3/4 cup (I used crushed tomatoes from the can)
2% milk - 1/2 cup
Oil - 3 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Cardamom -2
Clove - 1
Cinnamon - 1 piece
Salt - as needed
Curry leaves - as needed
Coriander leaves - for garnishing (chopped)


In a pan, heat oil and fry onions till brown and grind it into a paste.In a pan,heat oil and fry eggs, till sides are golden brown and slit the eggs on all four sides slightly and keep them aside.In the same pan, add cardamom,clove,cinnamon,curry leaves and add grounded onion.Add ginger garlic paste and fry well.Finally add crushed tomatoes and fry till oil separates.Now add chilli powder , turmeric powder and salt.Finally add milk and let the gravy thicken.As the gravy thickens,add the eggs and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.I served this egg curry with rice and Coriander shrimps as side dish.Will post the recipe for the shrimp dish soon.
