It is insane how vegetarians and non-vegetarians are divided into two different groups but what reunites them is one thing called Egg, unless you’re allergic to it, then you may not. Well, in my case, its true, I am allergic to eggs. Though that does not mean I do not like cooking egg recipes for my family. I took pride in preparing a dish and didn’t even taste a bit that turns out so well for everyone on the dinner table.
Sometimes, when there is nothing new to eat, for everybody is bored with the regular menu specials, I go ahead and cook egg curry for everyone. Egg curry recipe might not appeal as something very special to my family, but it does satisfy hunger at the dinner pretty nicely.
So today I am about to share with you my another favorite called, Egg curry recipe. This is recipe especially to be on the sides of the dinner table.
The best thing about egg curry recipe is that it is easy to follow and you do not have to be perfect at it, like paneer bhurji. It is especially suitable for bachelors or students living away from home.
First of all, boil the eggs and peel them carefully, keep them aside.
Now, in the hot oil, add cumin seeds and let it cook for about 10 seconds. After that, add in the chopped onions and fry it till very light brown. I don't like translucent onion in any gravy or curry dish.
Once the onions are nicely brown, go ahead and add in the ginger - garlic paste and toss gently. But, do not wait too long, or else onions will get burnt right in front of you.
Now, it is time to add in chopped tomatoes and chopped green chilies. Give it a right mix. At this time add required salt, it helps to mush up the tomatoes faster.
After about 5 minutes or so, add all the powdered masalas(spices) like red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, Degi mirch powder and mix it all.
Pour in a little water once you have added all the masalas in the pan. This way the curry will be saved from burning. Let the water get soaked in the masala, and let the curry cook for about another 5 minutes or so. It will not take too long for you to cook this curry.
Now, take the boiled eggs, either you can cut it into halves or add them like that only. Stir carefully and try not to break the eggs or scramble them. Just be gentle.
