Egg curry recipe: A Culinary delight

As a fantastic source of protein, eggs can be used to create a wide variety of mouthwatering dishes. One such incredible dish is egg masala curry, which is simply boiled eggs simmered in a hot masala gravy. In addition to the flavors and tastes of the spices used, it has a nice tangy tomato flavor.

Every home makes egg curry differently, and with a few tweaks, you may create a unique flavor. I’m going to share my mother’s recipe today that she’s been using for years.

This recipe for egg curry is made with a few spices, onions, and tomatoes. It is quite filling and soothing and goes well with parathas (flatbread) and rice. Because everyone will want repeated servings, prepare additional quantities.

Instruction for an egg curry recipe

  5. Let the eggs cool down for 5 minutes. Drain the water, take the eggs out, and peel them.

  3. Add tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, chili powder garam masala,and salt. Let the tomatoes cook till they are pulpy, 6-8 minutes.
